Ahh the holidays… I LOVE this time of year, when the air gets really cold and still, and at night you see twinkling fairy lights in all the windows as you pass by. I WISH it snowed here, but honestly I’m such a whimp, I could never imagine shoveling the driveway before work.
Today is so cold and foggy – the perfect day to curl up and watch all my favorite Christmas movies, but alas, I am at work. Tonight, we are headed downtown for a little pre-Christmas shopping event. We are so lucky, and spoiled – we are meeting one of our sales reps at Bloomingdales, and we get to pick out a new pair of swanky holiday shoes. Lucky us! In addition to being spoiled rotton, I am very much looking forward to seeing the tree and the ice rink in Union Square. That will get me geared up for the holidays – some mulled wine or a hot toddy would be amazing too 🙂
Speaking of delicious holiday drinks I found these fabulous mulling spices at Williams Sonoma – they are amazing in mulled wine, but I have also found that seeping them in simmering water gives your house this yummy “been baking all day” smell. I think I will surprise Kris tonight with a delicious smelling house, and a bowl of ice cream. I know how to win him over 🙂

Funny story here – one of my all time favorite bloggers, Jordan Ferney is from San Francisco, and I believe her husband is a photographer/artist… I wonder if this is him or if its just an uncanny coincidence…
