Happy Friday! Thanks for hanging out with me this week. We had a fun getaway planned for this weekend, but had to cancel due to crazy weather. Now we’re going to be in town and it turns out I’m fine with it. Home sounds nice–this time of year can really rattle the nerves! New plans include holiday shopping, movies in bed, a bottle of bubbly, warm drinks and fires in the fireplace. Have a cozy weekend and tell the holi-drama to talk to the hand! xo
