details.

Life is pretty crazy down here right now, but I'm trying to stop and smell the proverbial (and literal) roses. Some details from my day:


T went out to pick up some groceries last night, and came home with these. They weren't artfully arranged or even seasonal, but they were just what I needed in my countdown-to-Christmas frenzy. I love that boy.


All of our pretty Christmas glasses (a gift from my mother) and dishes are washed and put away; there won't be time to do it later, since I'm working the day after Christmas up until we leave for our little New Years getaway.


Now that all my cards are sent out (as of a week ago, thankyouverymuch!), I can look at all of the Christmas cards we've received from friends sans a single pang of guilt. That little blue crèche was a gift from my Grandmother; it sat in the window of her living room every Christmas for as long as I can remember.


We hung only a few ornaments this year (on the ficus in our living room).


Of course, we always keep a little bit of Santa Fe close at hand (another gift from T's stepfather).


I've got my Vermont Originals hat...


...and my Hunter boots, all ready for whatever weather Christmas brings us here in Virginia.

When you finally get a chance to stop and take a breath, what details from your day will you make time to enjoy?
