the (holiday) weekend + committing to…

November 28, 2011

i’ll be the first person to admit that i try to put a positive spin on most of my posts (have we talked about the fact that my friend kate accuses me of living in a marshmallow?), but i’m just going to be honest: overall, my thanksgiving wasn’t that great, and i was really glad to get back to sarasota on saturday afternoon, where i promptly went into what i’m referring to as “christmas nesting mode.” i put up my tiny tree (pictured above), i hung up some gold glitter snowflakes and i started on a couple of diy projects — one being a huge, custom photo for my bedroom wall. and actually, now that i stare at this photo, i realized that i also actually swapped out that black frame for a much prettier white one, and it looks so much better. being at home is really making me happy right now — i daresay it’s keeping me sane.*

and in the spirit of good mental health, here are five commitments for the week:

+ exercise. for both the endorphins and the fact that i need to burn off the exorbitant amount of pie i consumed over the  long weekend.
+ make this: pumpkin and goat cheese risotto. it sounds so, so, so good.
+ pick up a curtain and curtain rod for my bedroom window. in the spirit of making my home prettier (and my random nesting), i think it’s about time, don’t you? especially after almost three years here.
+ start making some of my holiday gifts. (more on them after they’re given.)
+ just breathe.

*daresay is a word that never fails to transport me to the pages of a jane austen novel. i kind of can’t believe i typed it but i’m pretty glad i did.

    Megs! I miss you! We need to catch up soon…phone date? Perhaps a girls night soon? 🙂 Sorry to hear Thanksgiving wasn’t the greatest, but happy to hear that you’re home and nesting! That will definitely lift your spirits! xoxo
