These are a few of my favorite things….

My dear blog friends, you’ll have to forgive me, because I’m in a poetic mood. I feel like life’s good fortune has been smiling on me. I feel so… happy. I have a man who loves me (and whom I love more than I can say), I have the best job on the planet, and I have a warm happy animal in my lap. I have good health, I have a roof over my head, food in my belly and a fire in the fireplace. I am a lucky woman.

You could say it’s Christmas spirit, but it’s more than that. It’s just a joy inspired by life, and the fact I can slow down enough to enjoy it during this season.

Brian and I had a fun night tonight. We broke open some wine, lit a fire, watched some Christmas classics, and…played Lord of the Rings Risk. Well, what can I say? We’re geeks at heart. 🙂

A few of my favorite things…

Presents for people I love, and pretty Christmas decorations.

The original, and best, Miracle on 34th Street. I love that it looks like a pencil drawing!

Pretty flocked candle holders I got in Canton the day after Thanksgiving, shopping with my wonderful mother-in-law and sister-in-law.

Toasty fires and pink rockstar socks to keep my toes warm.

Sweet, spoiled, sleeping animals. (Why, yes, that is our couch he’s sleeping on.)I am constantly cold, so blankets are a-plenty in the Thompson household.

Unashamed geekdom. I am not too proud to admit that Brian was owning me in a bad way.

Brian is off work all week, so we get to spend lots of time together, which is fantastic. We’ve got lots of great Christmas light displays in our neighborhood, which I want to drive around and look at. So, check back for some neat photos of that later this week! I’m excited for Christmas, and I hope you are all as well. Peace and love, my friends.
