Christmas is here!

Wow! I can't believe Christmas is only a few days away! Aaron and I leave tomorrow night to head back to Chicago. Good thing we didn't leave earlier- we might have been snowed in! We got a lot of snow on Saturday, as you can see below. Here I am in front of our new car (not that you can see it). I had to buy one to get to my new job. The car is growing on me I guess, but I still see myself as a non-car person, and hope to get rid of it as soon as I can. I'm wearing Aaron's mom's old Finnish fur cap. It's dramatic yes, but very warm. I even got a compliment on the street!

I've been wrapping away in preparation for Christmas. Ikea had such great nordic inspired decorations this year. I think it's my favorite paper yet!

Oh, and here's Aaron below in the White Mountains. Pretty huh?

Merry Christmas!

the brick house

I came across this amazing mid-century renovation blog called, The Brick House. Such inspiration! Such envy! Such Taste!

busy month!

The past month has been so busy for me. I interviewed for jobs, decided to accept a position, went on a car search to be able to get to the new job, traveled to Chicago for Thanksgiving, participated in a good friend's wedding, hosted(ing) a Brazilian friend and took a weekend trip to NYC. I even went to a bunny fair! Whew! So much to blog about and no time to blog. But the holidays get me in the blogging spirit, and I start my new job tomorrow, so I hope to have more time to settle into home life. I also feel the urge to knit. I'm thinking red marled wool. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
