I always feel like I neglect November and don’t show it quite as much love as I could because it brings with it a few bummers, like Daylight Savings Time, the stress of the upcoming holidays, and the first bitterly cold days of the year.
In its early stages this year, though, November is proving to be an awesome month. It’s been warm and sunny, and I’m enjoying slower, brighter mornings than I have in several weeks (though, I’m still holding a grudge about it getting dark at six in the evening!) Anyway, here are a few things I’m swooning over and wishing for this month.
We’ve finally started making some progress on hour house and our living room is just missing a few finishing touches. A colorful and cozy rug (13), a few warm lights (6), and some smell-goods (12) are just the items we need to make it feel extra homey.
I can’t wait to sip copious amounts of tea and hot cocoa – and maybe some of my favorite wine (10) – preferably from a cute mug (8) while trying out new recipes for the holidays (5) and spinning some Christmas tunes (9.)
I’m also hoping we can squeeze in a few date nights (are you reading this, J?) before life gets extra crazy and busy next month… and also so I have an excuse to get all dolled up (1, 2, 3, 4, 7.)
And to capture the special moments leading into the holidays, I vow to take more pictures this month (11!) Looking back through years and years of photographs, pictures from November just don’t seem to exist. Unacceptable!
So, hello, November. I promise to give you a chance this year and make it a month to remember. Please be good to us!
