What I’m Digging
Happy Friday, friends! My little guy is watching Emmett Otter’s Jug Band Christmas (he can’t get enough of those little river puppets, and dances around in happy circles when they sing “Barbecue”!), I’m sipping coffee laced with fresh nutmeg, the wood stove is exactly the right temperature, and the day promises to be a nice one. Great way to go into the weekend, I’d say!
My English Lessons column for December is up on Verve, as well. I’m chatting about the lessons I learned one Christmas in my early teens about the satisfaction that can be gained from keeping the holidays simple.
Oh, and pssssssst!!! All five books I’ve written with Lark are currently 50%, as part of a huge craft book sale on Barnes & Noble!
Here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that grabbed my attention this week:
*The time of hot mulled wine has arrived.
*Easy, seasonal, and adorable.
*20 edible gift ideas. YUM!
*Completely in love with Sunray and his world.
*Camille’s beautiful wreath-making party.
*Sticky cranberry gingerbread, oh yeah.
*Tomato cage holiday tree=total genius (via Simple Mom).
*Hoping to make one of these for solstice.
*Getting this for Huxley for winter (and eventually all of Sibylle’s books).
Mom and I are headed out to Charlotte this weekend with Huxley (Glenn will be holding down the fort in our absence, sweet man that he is). My brother, his wife, and their son moved into a new home there back in July and we’re excited to go check it out and let the cousins play (the boys are 3 1/2 months apart and love to go crazy together!).
Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
*Each Friday, I post a photo of Huxley here, since, naturally, he’s what his Papa and I dig the most.
