Above is our attempt to bring Christmas cheer to our little rental. We couldn’t squeeze a tree in so instead we strung up lights across our bookshelf and bought a tiny plastic table tree. One of our friends gifted us a wreath so we still have that piney smell I love so much.
This is my favorite time of the year. Work is quiet, with most of my office on vacation, leaving me time to sit and reflect on the last year. Though I’ve been dealt some bad news this week, all in all 2011 has been a pretty good year. And in January we move in to a cute little bungalow tucked up next to a state park with views over Diamond Head and the ocean. It’ll be the first house I’ve lived in 20 years. Crazy! I can’t wait.
