merry little holiday.

The holidays are by far my favorite time of the year. As with most years, the past few weeks have been crazy, but we finally had time to take a breather yesterday and take in the festivities around us. After walking the plaza lights, watching Love Actually, sipping eggnog and eating an obscene amount of sweets, I'd say it's officially Christmas!

Have a merry one. -xo

Having traveled to New York and London in the past few months, I'll admit those two cities are the tops for festive spirit. Yet, there's something about Kansas City and the plaza lights. If you've never made it there when the air gets cold, add it to the list. This is one of many gorgeous shots featured in the Kansas City Star.

My favorite tradition is getting together with mom every year for a day of baking, and then take our work to the local shelters. (While listening to carols full blast, of course. My favorite playlist here). The kitchen was a mess and our stomachs ached, but here was the tasty final product.
