Can you believe it? December is finally here. Every year I say "this is the fastest year", and this year was the most fastest year by far. I can't wait to welcome a new year! There has been to much to be thankful for this year and next year; almost done with my college degree, getting a job during the summer, my brother graduating college, and having the most wonderful family and friends.Spent  a wonderful day with my Dad catching up on father and daughter time while enjoying some shopping. The weather was lovely today, really lovely! Mother nature is very teasing, after days of snow and rain, we've got perfect blue skies. I wonder how long will it last? I finally got the chance to wear my new burgundy blazer and leopard print silk scarf I've bought this month. With the oncoming bitter winter, I am going to enjoy my Christmas present a little earlier; new UGG boots to keep my feet warm. Possibly the best Christmas treat ever is having my younger brother, who will be freshly graduated from college, back at home! You can't believe what you can find so close to home. In this little neighborhood just a ten minute walk away are a few streets of cute boutiques, cafes, bakeries, and restaurants. I've honestly never really ventured over to that part of the neighborhood, and I think tomorrow if the weather holds up I will be enjoying a stroll there and finally can take some photos. How is your weekend going?
