Happy to be Alive, Because: Hot Cocoa Bars & Elf.


1. Christmas memories. We went to see the tree lighting last week, but ended up getting caught standing in the rain.While that normally would have been frustrating, it's hard to get mad about something when there's a gorgeous Christmas-tree all lit up like magic in front of you.

2. Hot Cocoa Bars. 


My mom and I set up a hot coco bar for a Christmas party on Tuesday, and it was adorable. And delicious.

3. Elf.


This is how we ended our weekend--with the greatest movie ever. Have you watched it this season yet?!

4. These pens. You need them. You'll love them. Buy them immediately. I got a brand new pack on Tuesday, and I can't stop journaling and making to-do lists, simply because these pens are so fantastic.

5. Christmas in love. I wrote about it yesterday, but MAN...I love spending Christmas with my partner in life. Sneaking around to hide presents from each other, having someone to share the late night drive home from Christmas parties with, and a billion other things that make my heart feel like it's just going to explode with love. Spending Christmas with my best friend is just my favorite thing in the world.

What made you happy to be alive this week?

  9. Felt pens are the best. So is Elf. One of my favorite parts of Christmas is seeing everyone's trees, and that one is particularly pretty!

  15. I love the hot cocoa bar! I haven't watched Elf... ever. It's on my list for this year, though. My niece is coming over for a girl's night next weekend, so maybe we'll watch it. :)

  17. Christmas...everything about it makes me happy to be alive! Obviously all of the typical stuff: hot cocoa, Elf (best movie!), and memories, but also...Christ was born! Hooray! I can't wait to go home from college to visit my family for a little over a week (can't wait!) and spend the holiday with them :) Only 10 days to go!!
