Hello there! I hope your December is going wonderfully so far! We're well on our way to the new year. Can you believe it? Isn't that crazy? Pretty soon we'll jotting down our resolutions, hoping not to break them in the first weeks of year. We'll accidentally write "2016" on our papers for who knows how long until we finally catch on. But until then let's enjoy the holidays. Here's what I'm loving right now!


Bowling is fun particularly if you don't play it very often. I went to a young professional networking event & the theme was an ugly sweater party at the bowling alley. I actually got brand-new bowling shoes which was a pretty cool experience. Never been worn bowling shoes!! Do you like my Santa socks?

Secret Santa

It's rare to find a Secret Santa that gives a good gift, one perfectly tailored to you. My Secret Santa gave me limited release beers & I couldn't be happier. Just like an expensive bottle of wine, I'll have to save these for a special occasion.

Beach Days

It's practically winter & all but California doesn't know the difference, Southern California that is. You'll see your fair share of surfers this time of year, but not as many beachgoers. I love being by the coast, so I take pictures whenever I pass by.

Christmas Parties

I adore Christmas parties & the general festivities associated with this time of year. The parties are merry & bright. Fred & I joined my parents at the Christmas party at their home association clubhouse. It was filled with tasty bites & drinks.

Catching Up with Old Friends

In the past weeks I've gotten together with three of my closest friends, one of whom I hadn't seen in almost a year. It truly gives me joy when I see them & we can catch up over dinner or tea or a hike. Friends are the best!

What are you loving right now? :]
