A Few of My Favorite Things

This time of year it's so easy to get caught up in the materialism of Christmas.  You're surrounded by people asking you what you want. "I dont know" or "I dont want anything" usually will not suffice.  Plus, you're doing WAY more shopping than any normal person should so you're seeing millions of ads and looking at millions of things and you start to turn into a green monster.  I am so embarrassed that I bought myself Minnetonka moccasins and a clutch within the last couple weeks.  Whoops!

When I look around, I find that I have so many beautiful things.  The sweater at H&M isn't going to make me happy - and I'd rather save that $29.95 to go to France in February anyway!  Here are a few of my favorite things....

I am so happy that we have our new house!  I love it.  It's so cozy and I have huge kitchen for cooking and crafting.  A record player is the best way to listen to music.  When I play a record, I actually listen. It's not background noise.  I love my Nikon because I love taking photos for me and for you!  LMR Photography is really a lot of fun.  I inherited my in-laws china last year when Dan's older brother went away to Hawaii.  He had gotten it because his favorite color was orange.  Dan's parents were married in the late 70s.  I think they all think the china is ugly but Dan and I love it and feel so blessed to have it in our home.  My ghetto jewelry collection is a hodge-podge of vintage watches, junk from Goodwill, cheap stuff from Forever 21 and precious gifts.  I love it.  The cello is also something I inherited when my brother-in-law and his family moved away.  I played viola as a kid so re-learning this instrument has been fun.

When I put things in perspective, I really do have a lot.  I am looking forward to a simple Christmas spent with people I love and seeing less and less of the green monster I become every December.

Happy Holidays!
