A Very, Merry Christmas ...

These illustrations by Caitlin McGauley for Tory Burch make me happy! Especially her fave drink Brandy Alexander, the sophisticated sister of Eggnog.

Can you believe it? Tomorrow's Christmas eve already! Do you still have a lot to do? I do! Which is why I'm signing off early today until Monday. Busy day today ... I'm meeting a great friend this morning who I'm really excited to see, my brother-in-law flies in this afternoon from Amsterdam, I have to finish all the shopping since we're hosting Christmas eve tomorrow and I'm attending a gathering with a bunch of high school friends this evening. So much to pack into one day! But hey, it's what you do during the holidays, right?

Amidst all the fun and chaos, I will be taking time out to count my blessings. Not just the one's I see everyday ... family, friends, health, home, etc. But also the blessings that aren't as obvious like possible accidents avoided or getting your children into the school they were meant to be in, not the one you wanted. Large or small, and everything in between I've so much to be thankful for. And a huge thank you to you for stopping in everyday and reading whatever it is that crosses this girls mind. I'm very thankful and always excited to have you:)

Wishing everyone a wonderful and blessed weekend with your loved ones! A virtual toast to you. Group hug:)

I was nearly named Brandi Alexander. I don't know if my parents thought that'd be funny or not. They'd knew I'd come in close to Christmas, and chose dates. I'm really glad my mom won and named me Brandi Noel.
Happy Christmas, Haydee! Hope you have a fantastic time with your family!

Have a very Merry Christmas! Good luck hosting, I know it's such hard work, but always a labor of love! Not that I've ever hosted Christmas, but I've made a MEAN Rosh Hashanah for my family, and it's insane when you have to feed 20 hungry Jews...watch out!

Enjoy your weekend! Nothing's better than catching up with old friends from high school....unless your friends were like mine, and in that case, you're better off forgetting about them and seeing the ones from college. : )
