The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

nullnullnull


Good morning, loves! How was your weekend? Hope you all had a wonderful one.

I had a good one but am finally starting to feel a bit of the holiday crunch. I can't really complain, it's still relatively mellow compared to every other year, but I didn't really have much downtime. Just focusing on getting ready for the festivities that we will be hosting in less than a week. I have to admit that I did get to squeeze in a ghost walk of lower Manhattan and a screening of Rudolph and Frosty on Sunday night so it wasn't all work and no fun. :)

And there's some more holiday fun yet to come. Tonight we're going to see Handel's Messiah at Carnegie Hall. I've never been and have always wanted to see it so I'm really excited!

Have a wonderful day, sweets!

xoxo
