on saturday we fell in love
with a tiny christmas tree at eastern market.
so we brought her home to camp out
in our living room for the next month or so.
she’s very colorful and sparkly.
eleanor can’t stop reaching for her and giggling.
some of our dear friends have started a nonprofit organization, the foundation for survivors of abuse, in the hopes of bringing awareness to and help with removing the statute of limitations for sex abuse crimes. these laws are in need of change and i commend deondra, desirae and melody for their courage in coming forward to share their own painful story and also for their efforts with this organization....
thanksgiving day was wonderful this year.
eleanor did this really kind thing where she slept in until 9am (which meant we all slept in until 9am…. ahhhhh-mazing) which started our day off quite nicely.
we then spent most of the day cooking, eating, skyping with family and checking out some monuments together in glorious 65 degree weather....
we hope you had a happy thanksgiving weekend!
we got to host these pretty girlies, my little twin sisters.
so basically, we laughed a lot this weekend.
here are 10 things about the holidays
that make jacqueline
secretly listening to holiday music in mid-october…
..and hearing your favorite holiday songs for the first time all year
getting december holiday issues of your favorite magazines
saying “happy holidays” and giving a big smile to everyone when you’re out and about (and having the sentiment returned!)
that first bite of pumpkin pie
making a stocking for your pet
tracking santa’s trip online
watching elf and home alone repeatedly, because once is not enough
finding that perfect gift for a loved one…
…and the look on their face when they unwrap it
thanks for sharing, jacqueline!...
