We have officially put up our big Christmas tree outside, decorated and all! We were a little behind this year with all the business of work, but I’m finally in full on festive mode, thanks to lights hanging everywhere, holiday music streaming, and cozy sweater weather. I’ve refreshed the Airstream with some new pillows (if you liked my previous ones, I’m selling them!) that warm up the space with a rosy glow. Mauve is making it’s way everywhere throughout my wardrobe and decor, as you might have noticed. And I’m obsessed with touches of copper to accent it all. I’m stuck in perpetual nesting mode once it gets chilly outside. I just want to create the coziest space to snuggle up in blankets and sip on European drinking chocolate.
I like to go out and experience the holiday buzz, then come back in the evening to have a stay home date night with Josh. I recently learned what Wassail is (“here we come a’Wassailing”), and have been making my own spiced holiday drink to sip on. Spiked of not, it’s so yummy poured over ice in a mule mug! See Recipe below… And if you try it out, let me know what you think!
