it's been a good year

i have laughed, loved, and cried this year.
i can't believe that it's all coming to a close.
i always get giddy thinking of thanksgiving, and christmas.
in truth, fall and winter are my favorite season.
i have been lucky and blessed this year, and have expierenced so much.
this year will be andy's and i's SECOND christmas.
i can't believe we get to celebrate together again.

the weather is perfect this year too.
there is just something so special about california.
it's been a warm and mild summer, and fall has been just perfect.
it's STILL 66 degrees out and sunny.
i couldn't ask for more...

what's YOUR favorite season?
how do you prepare?
and are you as EXCITED about turkey as i am!?

  1. It's also my boy and I's second Christmas together, and our first in our own place! I'm so excited! Christmas is my favourite time of year, although sadly we haven't got the decent weather! :( x

  2. My favorite season is spring! I love it because it's like a breath of fresh air -- a huge relief to know that we've come out of miserable winter and can enjoy being outside again! I'm a much happier person in the spring. :)

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

  5. Fun post! My favorite season... I guess it's a toss up between spring and fall. I think probably fall. Fall foods are SO good. I prepare by getting lots of sweaters and collection apples to press cider :)
