let the holiday season begin!

29 Nov 2013

it’s official. the turkey has been eaten. the food coma has been cured. and the official holiday season has begun. the happy girl christmas dance has commenced! as i type this, christmas music is finally filling my ears and i’m snacking on leftover turkey biscuits. aaaand i think we are considering getting ourselves out in the middle of all of the shopping craziness – not necessarily to shop, but to just experience it. lina has never done the  black friday thing before, so it’s only right that we do it up a little. hehe.

but, before we get into all the craziness, i thought i’d share with you a few snapshots from our thanksgiving yesterday. i am sooooo thankful to have been here in the states this year, though serving thanksgiving in sweden to different swedes for the past 3 years was an amazing experience. still, it was good to get a little traditional american turkey day stuff on.  in fact, i got all overwhelmed and emotional at one point, actually. if you are american and celebrated thanksgiving, i hope that you had a beautiful day, wherever you are! and to all of you… happy holidays. the time has arrived!

this is how i roll when i’m preparing thanksgiving dinner… wine & messiness.
