A December to Remember

How did the holiday season sneak up on me so fast? It still feels like yesterday we were sweating it in August and focused on pulling off a wedding! (The wedding and the sweating were probably correlative).

In anticipation for the holidays, I've been reorganizing and cleaning my house. I'm particularly fond of my new color-coordinated book shelf.
