Gorgeous Flavia card.  The outside reads:  "The Gift of You.  Life gives us treasures to discover. . . like the sky, and the wind, and beautiful people like you."  The inside reads:  "Thank you for your friendship."

Current Little Pleasures

Christmas mail, even though I seem to receive fewer pieces of mail every year.  Fortunately, my mom also shares her holiday mail.  Double the fun.

Ten Bad Reasons to Get a Job by Penelope Trunk.  I'm still thinking about this blog post, trying to decide what I believe.  I can certainly see the appeal of being a SAHS (second S standing for the gender-neutral Spouse).

XL Hot Coffee from Dunkin' Donuts to get my work days started.

Decorating our new home for Christmas with Maya and Herb. 

Our unseasonably warm weather, though, since I'm concerned about global warming, I suppose I shouldn't be happy about being in the 50s right now.  Sigh.

I think the nagging situation with my co-worker might be resolved.  Maybe.  My blood pressure is a lot lower just thinking it might be a non-issue moving forward, so I'll go with it!

Gingerbread and Peppermint Mocha flavors of the season.

The Simple Things magazine from the UK.

As usual, Jenn sent some great postcards.  All of these lovely Victorian-style Christmas postcards are from the Polish site, Postallove.  They have tons of options for postcards, stationery, and more.
