I honestly can’t believe that next week at this time, Christmas will be over again for another whole year…how is that possible??
Of course, with everything that my husband and I have been through recently, we haven’t been in much of a “holiday spirit;” all the pre-Christmas craziness that normally gets me excited about the season – and by that, I mean diving into the fray that is our local shopping mall! – just hasn’t happened.
But I promised you outfit photos, dear readers…and outfit photos necessitate the creation of an outfit, am I right?! I’m not the kind of girl to sit around in my pyjamas even if I’m just staying at home…but once this look was a done deal (and little Badger fed and comfortable) it seemed a shame not to take my shaggy Free People cardigan and leopard clutch for a bit of a spin.
The mall was as busy as expected; and spending an hour in a blur of holiday tunes and coloured lights and rushing shoppers suddenly made Christmas seem real. Of course, the real Christmas is about so much more than that…and now I just might be ready to start counting my blessings again.
