We’ve bought our first Christmas tree and it’s been a blast putting it up.
Instead of gaudy bright colours, we’ve decided on a rather subdue and classy palette of black (just $1.50 from the Ikea sale a couple of months back!) and red with a tinge of silver.
The lights blink in the dark, and it’s beautiful and peaceful.
Coco, however, thinks that it’s her personal treehouse and has been scaling the branches, knocking the baubles out of the tree.
Too annoying and too cute!
In the meantime, I am in love with the toffee nut latte from Starbucks.
Every Christmas, I will go into a Starbucks store and gaze longingly at the merchandise that they have on sale.
So quirky and lovely and festive.
But I end up not buying anything because it just seems too frivolous.
It makes me happy, though, sipping the nutty, aromatic hot coffee listening to jazzy carols in the store as the rain pours outside.
Little moments of peace and happiness.
