I do love a good exchange!

As I'm wandering through Blogland this morning, I'm noticing a theme emerging: Christmas! Halloween is over, lights are starting to go up around town, Starbucks has its holiday drinks on the menu (eggnog lattes? yes please!) and of course stores are already pushing their Christmas merchandise, so naturally, my blogging friends are starting to squeal with delight over this wonderfully magical holiday.

Now, don't get me wrong, I truly love Thanksgiving. My Uncle flies out from Boston every year and we play up in the mountains, go horseback riding, explore Denver, watch movies and eat entirely too much food on Turkey Day. It is always a fun-filled week that I look forward to it all year long...

...but it still isn't quite as magical as Christmas. (word to the wise: I will be using "magical" A LOT for the next month or so, I'm sure)

Ornament Exchange

I'd like to give a shout out to the ladies over at Random Moms for hosting a Christmas Ornament Exchange this year. If you're anything like me and have waaayyy too many ornaments to count, but simply cannot resist continually picking up new ones this exchange is for you! Check out their blog for all of the details, and hopefully you'll get another ornament for the tree that comes with a smile, a story and a good memory.

...weekend recap and lots of things I keep meaning to post about to come later...


  1. Ha ha!!! Yay!!! I'm so glad I'm not the only one, I was thinking of you this morning when I went into Starbucks. We can be insane together. =)

  2. Thanks for linking to our ornament exchange! We are so excited. We agree, you can never have too many ornaments!

  3. YES! I was just thinking we should catch up this morning after reading this. I come up to Fort Collins on most weekends so maybe we could plan something? I miss talking to you in person!


Thanks for stopping by!
