Counting down to Christmas. I haven't been able to get into the Christmas mood yet, so I began a countdown... it's sort of helping. But the 70 degree weather isn't helping much. I keep trying to remember it's all about my attitude, but it's just not there yet. Hopefully soon.

Sipping tea. I've fallen in love with having a cup (or two) every morning. I even set up a little "tea bar" at work, so it's a little more fun every morning. My favorite flavor recently has been Ginger Peach. It's a different take on "traditional" tea (which I'm still not necessarily a fan of). Do you have a favorite?

Watching old Christmas episodes of all our favorite NBC comedies. Last night we started with the first Christmas episode of The Office, and it's crazy to remember how young everybody was 7(?) years ago.

Praying for the families in Newton. I have no words. Just very, very deep sadness. And slight confusion. And a lot of frustration... but mostly just sadness.

Listening to C's Long December playlist. It's really the perfect accompaniment to anything I'm doing at work, or for a long drive, or even just chilling around the fire.

Looking forward to having next week off. I am ready for a break, and a chance to recharge. A time to hang out with family, and to be by myself. I love working for a University that shuts down for 10 days. Now I just have to plan the week to make sure I don't waste it all!

Have a lovely day ♥

And thanks Danielle for the inspiration!


  1. I started drinking teas a few years back and I tend to like herbal teas best. Flavors like cinnamon plum, tangerine ginger, and blueberry red.... I like fruity flavors. I've tried green teas and just don't like them. A few black teas are okay but only if they have a caramel taste. We have a loose-leaf tea shop called Fava Tea that has over 300 kinds of tea. I love going there and buying a small amount of a bunch of diff. teas to see what I like.

  2. Love your currently post lady! Off to check out that playlist!
