The holiday season has offically arrived in all its glory-- or fury. <--This would depend upon your perspective ;] For us, we could not be happier. We are soaking up as much as we possibly can. Yesterday we went to Shady Brook Farm [our favorite local farm/market] to look at the fresh trees and explore their little side shop-- such pretty sights to say the least. We watched christmas movies, drank peppermint mocha coffee, and sung way too many christmas songs. And although we haven't purchased a single gift yet, we feel ahead of the game.
