Happy Hour Time

Well hellooooo Friday! It is about time you showed up, what took you so long? The long weekend last weekend was fabulous and much needed, but the only downside to a long weekend is it makes the following week seem that much longer. I can hardly believe that this is the first weekend of December, the year has gone by so fast it doesn’t feel like it should even be December yet. I do love driving down neighborhood streets this time of year and seeing all of the beautiful Christmas lights and decorations. Here’s to a weekend of Christmas decorating, football watching, and chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Cheers!

“Do your thing. Do it unapologetically. Don’t be discouraged by criticism. You probably already know what they’re going to say. Pay no mind to the fear of failure. It’s far more valuable than success. Take ownership, take chances, and have fun. And no matter what, don’t ever stop doing your thing.”
~ Asher Roth

  5. The time flies by so fast! I went to see Christmas market today and everything passed in a blur. I'll have to arrange another trip because I want a relaxed walk and admire every pretty sight :) xx Maja
