Happy weekend, friends! It's been a crazy week, filling holiday orders for the shop, but it is so nice to be busy. I've been listening to a lot of holiday music while I work, which automatically puts me in a great mood -- isn't it impossible not to smile when this comes over the airwaves?
This weekend I'm helping host a baby shower for one of my best friends and her baby-to-be, Harper Reese. Afterwards a group of us are going to get together and cheer on our Bulldogs as loud as we can -- even if it's only from our friend's living room. (Oh, Bulldogs, y'all can do it!) Also, a little college football championship cartoon humor here. So true.
And, a little note to the locals: on Sunday I'll be at Heirloom in the historic Boulevard District, selling my paper goods and art prints from 4-7 in the afternoon at their holiday craft market. There will be "seasonal drinks" and "housemade snacks" and plenty of handmade goods, of course. I hope you'll come by and say hello!
Until then, here are a few great links from around the Web this week:
