12 Days till I'm home!

I thought I was in the Christmas spirit a week ago. I was making Christmas cards out of recycled paper and brochures I found on the streets and crocheting with Hannah and life was swell and things were cute.

But, today I took Christmas to another level. I LOVE THIS TIME OF THE YEAR! On the way back from the gym I bought a little poinsettia flower for 2 euros. It's sitting on my desk next to my cinnamon Christmas tea.

I cut out paper snowflakes in dark and light blue and creamy white. Then I strung pieces of red, green, white, and blue paper together in a paper chain.

The background on my laptop is a wintery cute town lit up with lights. I've been listening to Charlie Brown's Christmas Soundtrack on repeat for the past four days. The hot chocolate here is thick like pudding. The best part? The Christmas light all over the city are finally on! I'm doing a walking light tour tonight as a reward for working on my paper all day long. Do worry, pictures will come tonight!
Love you all! Happy December!
Because itsss theee mostttt wonderful timmme of the yeeeaaaarrrr!
