Holiday Haze


This is my reality lately. Working all day, running around like a lunatic all over frigid cold NYC during my lunch and after work for hours every night trying desperately to find the right gifts. My best part of the day is when I finally collapse from exhaustion on my couch and cuddle up to a warm drink.

Thank goodness it's Thursday and the weekend is near. I'm determined to get it all accomplished this weekend.

Hope you're all having a wonderful week! xoxo
