A few snapshots as of late… feel free to follow along on Instagram or connect on Facebook! This time of year has to be my favorite. I love the transition between Thanksgiving and Christmas, don’t you? Over the past few weeks, I made my first-ever turkey (success!), hunted down a Christmas tree, began to decorate around home and celebrate the season with friends and family. What’s your favorite part about this time of year? I hope you’re having a wonderful week!
P.S. Don’t forget to enter my giveaway, ending Friday! (Details here)

    Lovely pictures! I'm always so jealous that in the States you put up your Christams tree already around Thanksgiving. Here in Austria we decorate the tree only on the 23rd or 24th of December. ๐Ÿ˜‰
