* Buon Natale! *

Something like "wishes for a merry Christmas and a happy new year" in Italian.

From my home to your's, I wish you a very merry Christmas.

I love my 4' Christmas tree. I decorated it the first weekend after Thanksgiving. My little tradition is to watch my favorite Christmas movie, Home Alone, while I do so. Since I don't have a TV anymore, I rented it on my Kindle. That Kevin McCalister gets me every time! [Check out my favorite Halloween 2013 costume here.] I also rented Love Actually recently, another movie I simply couldn't let a holiday season go by without viewing.

In the above photo, you'll see the present I received from my family's white elephant gift exchange, a cooler with a strap and speakers you may use with an iPod. I wonder if it'll work with my iPod shuffle... This will be great for picnics in the summertime!

I am also the proud owner of two pot holders that my nearly 89-year-old grandmother made. With denim on the inside, they are the best and until now, I've never owned any myself.

I am really looking forward to my Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, which I will spend with my family.

In addition, I would like to sincerely thank you for reading! Grazie!


  1. I love those potholders, quite ingenious. Have a very fun and happy Christmas!

    1. One of the things my beloved grandmother is famous for. Thanks for coming over and spending some of the busy holiday season with me. I will. Enjoy your holiday. Let me know how those macarons are!
