Friday I’m In Love (Saturday Wait)

Winter SceneHi, hello! Fancy meeting you here on a Saturday! 

It’s been a long couple of weeks, but I’m slowly starting to feel like my normal self again, especially after another inspiring Friday morning yesterday at CreativeMornings Buffalo. If you live in the Buffalo area and haven’t been, I could list a million reasons why you should change that. Every single time I’ve attended, I’ve walked out of CreativeMornings feeling energized, motivated, and ready to create. Buffalo has so much talent and creativity. I’m awestruck. And the event spaces aren’t so bad either.

In totally unrelated news, Christmas is now only two weeks away, so there’s that. I’ll be spending this weekend decorating the house and frantically picking out Christmas gifts (all while listening to this playlist!). Are you ahead of the game or behind on your Christmas prep like me?

Here are a few things that caught my eye this week.

I adore this post from Fresh Exchange describing how their tradition of cutting down a Christmas tree changed this year with the addition of their baby boy. I love how Megan takes pause to soak in life’s little, precious moments. I know I’m sentimental, but Christmas traditions really do stick with us for a lifetime.

I’m loving this adorable and fun holiday date night idea from In a DC Minute. Home Alone really is the best! (My other favorite Christmas movie is Christmas Vacation, by the way.)

For those of you who aren’t fans of winter, here are some lovely ways to stay happy during this dark and cold season.

Speaking of happy things, I’m completely feeling this post by Taylor at In the Buff. Girl, I’m totally with you. I needed this, thank you.

I think we all need a girl gang. I love this piece about all-female gatherings and the importance of female friendship.

And for an extra treat, keep an eye out right here for a holiday giveaway next week! You won’t want to miss out on this one.

Have a fun and festive weekend, everybody!
