happy december!

So, in my wee small town there’s an annual Christmas on First Street. It’s possible I’ve mentioned it here before. All the storefronts and vendors open their doors, carolers occupy every corner, people sip hot cider, kids run wild, and usually my dad can be found spinning cotton candy for a very long line of people. Oh, and another thing that happens is that my mega-tall boyfriend dresses up as an elf [in a custom made elf costume you see] and poses for photos with Santa and children of all ages. [It should be noted that he does this as a favor to a friend’s mother, not on his own accord — though I wouldn’t put that past him either].

Well. Here we are again, aren’t we? The truth is that I have missed blogging so much, but simply have not had the energy or bandwidth to churn out even the most pathetic of posts.

I started a new job two days after my last post [which was September 13th – ahem] and it has been so wildly fantastic and so overwhelmingly exhausting. I love it and could not feel more fortunate to be where I am. Oh, and I’m also freelancing most of my projects from my old job. You know, in my spare time.

I don’t want to make any farfetched promises, but I miss my little creative corner of the internet and I hope to be spend some more time here in very near future. And without further ado, a little pistachio + black + gold home inspiration for you.
