too soon? no? okay good!

christmas has arrived!  ...sort of.

though it will be a few weeks until we put up our decorations, it doesnt stop me from tearing through the box and pulling out everything like it's the first time i have ever seen it!

to be honest, i did actually forget about our new star for the tree (and maybe was the one pushing to get it last year...maybe.)  there is just something about picking out our tree and bringing it home.  something about our apartment that smells like pine for a month and the anxiety of all ornaments within cat's reach.  something about the last month of the year, celebrated every day that just feels like home, and i happen to love every minute of it!

a country breakfast


i love the city life, i do, really.  but there will forever be a spot in my heart for the small country town.  the air, the sweet novelty shops, open space and easy passerby smiles is sometimes the exact escape you need from the hustle and bustle of our every day.  plus, look at that morning sunlight on jays face...

{le sigh}

this morning we took advantage of a small town home-style breakfast and busy rooster decor on our way home from a great night with friends!  the coffee was burnt and the slabs of bacon were huge, seriously huge!  it was about 3 hours earlier then i wanted to be awake, but it really was a  great way to start our weekend...

..the fact that jay had me laughing the entire hour and half drive home was pretty great too!
