Today I woke up and realized two things. One, I have not written a blog post in what feels like forever. No one makes me write, I have no schedule to keep to so when life takes over the blog falls behind… Two, the thought that Christmas is now less than 1 week away is slightly terrifying… where did all my hot chocolate go… my hopes of making gingerbread cookies this year… yikes! I better step on it!

Christmas is a time of being cozy, relaxing and spending it with friends and family. So this year I will not be posting about gift guides, recipes, and the sort. Instead, I will be out in the world enjoying the festive side of this holiday season. I might post a few things for the new year. However, my Instagram will defiantly be alive and well! Let’s face it I need an outlet for all my festive wreath pictures!

With all that said, I wanted to share a few inspirational quotes, sayings and of course some beautiful pictures to get everyone into the holiday season, especially if you live in California where it is currently slightly sunny and 60•

Here’s to Christmas! May it be a lovely holiday for every one filled with amazing ( can’t stop, won’t stop ) yummy food!
