The sun just broke through the clouds but it has been gray all day because there’s a front coming in with some rain. It has gotten cooler throughout the day and I am officially settling in to the winter temps. But this also makes me long for my fuzzy pants and slippers at points throughout the day.

Yes, I completely admit to getting into the Christmas spirit a little early. I don’t necessarily blame the advertising/retail people because they can’t MAKE me feel like shopping. Maybe it’s a combination of knowing Little E will appreciate a few more aspects of the holiday this year or that because we’re going to my parents’ a few days before Christmas, I want to get my tree put up with plenty of time for us to enjoy it. Maybe because it’s colder much eearlier this year or the fact that I have actually have some money to shop right now. All I know is, I am ready to buy some gifts and cozy up near a fire, much like this:
