Christmas Is Coming!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE Christmas. I don't think I've ever fully gotten over that child-like excitement that comes from all things christmassy (that's a word, right?). The songs, the smells, the presents, the movies, family, friends and that general sense of togetherness never fails to put a smile on my face and a warm fuzzy feeling in my stomach!

Now, with just less than a month to go until the big day, I think we can finally get into the spirit of the season! So, to start us off, I give you some of my favorite "christmassy" things ever!

Believe me when I say, there's plenty more where that came from! Keep an eye out for more Christmas posts in the very near future!

Charlie's favorite place to lie is very inconvenient!

I think it is high time that I broadened my blogging horizon! 

Places to Go and Things to See has been so much fun to do. I love writing about all the stunning places that I incessantly dream about going to but I have found myself wishing I could tell you more about the other things in my life too. The other things that excite, sadden, inspire, humour, inform and interest me!

Better late than never, right? It's been a crazy few weeks but I have finally got around to doing this month's wallpaper!

New York is one of the top destinations on my 'go to' list! I can't wait to go there one day– maybe this will inspire me to finally get saving this month!
