holiday errands

It is beginning to lot a lot like Christmas around here. This past weekend was full of the lovely little things that make the holiday special ~ eggnog and homemade cookies, paperwhites and Christmas trees, warm fires and friends...and a dusting of snow. I am trying to keep things really simple this year ~ and it feels good! A couple people emailed to ask about my gift-giving ideas, so I am hoping to get a little list together this week. And also a post about some of my favorite museums in Washington (in response to a comment on friday's post). So, stay tuned...and stay warm.

Thanks for taking the time to compose a post on museums. One more paper to go and I am hitting the road and driving down there. I look forward to seeing what you buy people as well.

I just put up my tree today and it instantly made me happy & stressed at the same time since it was a reminder Christmas is coming up! haha

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Yes - the evening snow dusting the holly and boxwood in the gardens of capitol hill was magic. KDM

Michelle ~ I hope you are enjoying your tree as much as I am...just don't stress too much.

Susan ~ nice to meet you. And thank you so for your kind words!

KDM ~ I am secretly longing for another one of those magical snowy evenings.
