 as i write this i’m curled up in bed with this candle burning and i couldn’t be more comfortable. being home for the holidays is the best, and since christmas is my favorite holiday it’s the best of both worlds. there are a few ways i love to spend my christmas break and the majority of them involve lounging around…

{ making gingersnaps }

one of my favorite things to do is bake, and baking gingersnaps tops the list. i make them once a year, in an abundant amount, and eat way more dough than i should.

{ watching christmas movies }

i’ve already watched the santa clause, but there a lot more on my list. i love christmas movies ( and music ), and am ready to watch a lot more… a whole lot more.

this does not need much explanation, but curling up on the couch in front of the fire is the best. add in one of the books i want to read over break, and we’re good to go.

{ enjoying eggnog }

eggnog is pretty polarizing. i feel like people love it or hate it, and i tend to love it, but in small amounts. i saw a recipe the other day for brown butter cinnamon rolls with eggnog icing and i can’t wait to try it out.

it sounds clichéd, but new york during the holidays is simply magical. there’s something so special, more special than usual, and it’s one of my favorite places to be during this time of the year.

{ catching up on tv shows }

i try to stay caught up on a lot of shows during the school year, but at the moment i’m catching up on the newsroom, vikings, and masters of sex

not a lot of explanation needed here, but i made a gingerbread house today that has become my pride and joy. just kidding, that’s super dramatic, but i really do love it. it looks like a log cabin, and you’ll be seeing photos on here soon! along with other photos from the month of december, which are staring to pile up…
