i love christmas. it’s my favourite holiday. our family has so many traditions that surround the day, but the best part for me is the extended visit that i get with sister, and doing all of our favourite things together.
these include, but are not limited to, lots of coffee, brunch, brunch and more brunch, naps, sleeping in, talking until all hours of the night, cookies, making pierogi, watching all of the so-bad-they’re-good holiday movies, watching The Holiday, watching Sound of Music, crying (duh!), driving to the states to go to Target, making a trip to Dunkin’, lots of giggling, talking about arkells, tagging each other in memes, and generally discussing how christmas gets a little weird when you’re an older single adult with semi-newly divorced parents.
this year i’ve heard rumblings that it will even include matching festive jammies!
i also get to spend my holiday in sister’s beautiful condo, decorated floor to ceiling in the most pinterest-perfect modern holiday glamour. blue suede christmas tree included!
to me, there is nothing better than a trimmed tree, crackling fire, and snow-covered ground – i’ll even put up with the cold if it means we can get some snow for christmas.
it may happen in calgary, but for now it’s dry streets and open coats. i’ve even had to take my mitts and hat off this week because it’s been too warm. i’m not complaining. cute always trumps cold.
i’ve been showing off my new frankie JORD wood watch and all of the fashionable and adorable winter accessories that i own, but are far too impractical for the -25 weather that is common around these parts of the north.
surprisingly, i haven’t worn a watch in my adult years up until now. i’ve never been in a romantic relationship long enough to reach the “we’re buying each other watches.” milestone. which is, what, the first holiday to follow the meeting-the-parents milestone? dating is really strange, ya’ll.
and not to worry, if you’re looking to get a gift for yourself, or that special someone, a gorgeous wood watch can still be under your tree before christmas. use my link to get an additional 25% off your purchase. plus, they offer custom engraving (make it personal and from the heart) and a beautiful cedar watch box (consider gift-wrapping complete).
merry christmas, lovies! xx
do you wear a watch? have you purchased one for a significant other?
thank you JORD for the early christmas gift.
