This is the week. This is the week, my family and I hide away and pretend that time has slowed. Coffee is savored. Books are more than just collectors of dust. A fire crackles and glows warm in the hearth, no matter the time of day. A closet is reorganized. A drawer is cleaned. Calendar "margin" is real and more than a term we repeatedly complain about needing more of.
Though Christmas has come and gone, it remains close to our hearts as we spend quality time together, play with our new toys, sip hot cocoa by said fireside, watch Christmas movies (ok, I'm the only one in this house that does that) and shop the after Christmas sales. It's easy to understand why this would be my favorite time of year.
There's no schedule in particular and I relish every moment. In fact, these pictures were taken at a nearby pond from one of our impromptu outings. I played with my new tripod, while the boys fished and did some exploring. And this outfit happens to be versatile enough to go from running errands to getting out into nature. The tunic top and leggings are so comfortable, while the utility jacket was the perfect layer for the unseasonably warm day.
In addition to the tripod, the suede, crossbody pictured above is now a member of my purse family! I'm looking forward to more style options with it. What do you think about the saddle bag trend?
Well, there is more chilling with the family to do. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, my reader friends.
