I'm starting to feel very festive as Thanksgiving nears. My neighbors put a pretty white Christmas tree up on their porch yesterday, and I was so tempted to follow suit and go into full force decorating myself. But, I refrained as I can't bear the thought of jumping over one holiday to get to another. There is so much to be thankful for this year and every year, and I cherish the one day a year we really focus on that.
This will be our first Christmas here in Orange County and I can't wait to enjoy all it has to offer. We are so lucky to have such beautiful, mild weather here during the winter. I think back to this time last year... I was freezing my buns off back in NYC! Brrrr! Today I was in flip flops and shorts, sweeping off my front porch, basking in the warm sunlight. What a lucky lady I am, what lucky people we are, to live in such a beautiful state! Here is a great list of holiday happenings here in Orange County, hope to run into you at one. :)
