To say that I’m obsessed with Christmas would be the understatement of the century. It’s not about the gifts, nor the day itself for that matter, but more about the weeks leading up to it. The spiked hot chocolate, the twinkly lights, and the time spent with family… So it only makes sense that one of my very favourite things to do around Toronto this time of year is frequent the Christmas Market. With Christmas carollers, wooden booths selling fabulous provisions, hot roasted nuts aplenty and a variety of beer gardens (complete with fire pits and mulled wine), it’s pretty much the happiest place on earth. My suggestion? Go at night. It’s magical!
As much as I love a lush, traditional, red and green Christmas, there’s something about a crisp white one that I always find appealing. A hint of garland, a bit of twinkle and a plate full of cookies are sometimes all you really need to really get in the spirit.
This weekend I…
:: Drank wine and ate cupcakes with girlfriends
:: Made a homemade garland (though Justin said it looks like our fireplace has a mustache… I’m kind of partial to it!)
:: Sourced some art for a client
:: Broke my “no buying anything for myself in December” rule at the One of a Kind Show. A few times…
:: Watched Chrismas movies!
