holiday staycation + week reflection

Baking. Snuggling. Holiday movies. Napping. Gathering with friends. More baking — and napping. Happiness.

The past week will go down as one of my favorites of 2017. With the exception of one day of working (in PJs from the comfort of my home), I savored time with my loves and friends who, like us, steered clear of the congested airports and roads and stayed put for the holidays. It was a perfect first Christmas for us and a welcomed break from the busyness that is our normal life. I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday and your 2018 gets off to a great start!

“My dearest friend, if you don’t mind. I’d like to join you by your side. Where we can gaze into the stars. And sit together, now and forever. For it is plain, as anyone can see. We’re simply meant to be.” The Nightmare Before Christmas
