The holidays are here! The holidays are here! December is so delightful because the holidays are here! And with that I have a big announcement to make about why my December will be so delightful.
This year I’ll be heading to Australia to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s with my husband’s family for the first time EVER! And . . . my parents are coming too! How amazing is that!? But don’t worry, I’m not going to leave you hanging because I have a lineup of some pretty incredible bloggers to fill the void while I’m gone with their amazing guest blogging skills!
While Australia will undoubtedly make my December very delightful, here are a few other things that also will make December delightful:
1.) Holiday lights. Who doesn’t love Christmas lights? They are the best!
2.) Store displays. Last year I went a little nuts to take photos of the store displays. I stopped short of pushing small children and old ladies out of the way to snap the perfect pic though, so no worries.
3.) Christmas trees. Normally we buy ours straight off the sidewalk. That’s city living folks. But this year we will not be getting our own tree so I’ll have to rely on the one in the lobby and the big one in Rockafellar Center to satisfy my tree cravings!
4.) Holiday drinks. Hot chocolate in a Christmas mug? Gingerbread latte? Yes, please!
5.) Holiday dinners. I made this one for the Hubs. A simple beef and spinach dish with a side of bruschetta and Clos Du Val-we served it at our wedding!
6.) This gingerbread toast!
7.) Holiday music! I love listening to holiday music. My favorites are Michael Buble’s album and Christmas Jazz.
8. Holiday parties! I always enjoy attending office holiday parties. I think they are really fun! I always get my dress from Rent the Runway* because I can get a great dress for not a lot of money. In the past I’ve rented a Badgley Mischka dress and a David Meester dress for holiday parties. Last year I got a Trina Turk dress for NYE. It’s awesome because I love getting new dresses but hate spending the money and these designers are really great! You get the dress for four days and return shipping is paid for you! This year I got this Nicole Miller dress for my office party. Lots of fun!
9. Holiday decorations. Since we are going away, we are not going crazy this year but I couldn’t help but break out our driftwood tree adorned with a starfish top. It is the little bit of holiday we need!
There are so many things that can make December delightful! Readers, what is making December delightful for you?
