There are officially two more weeks until Christmas, and I don’t think I’ve been as excited about it since I was a little kid.  I have a feeling time is going to crawl and crawl for the next week or so . . . There are still things to do here and work to get done, and all I want to do is pack up the car and go see my family in Tennessee . . .

It’s nice here, though.  We have our tree up and decorated, after going out to Powder Springs to a tree farm.  I hadn’t been to a tree farm since I was a kid and I really wanted to see what a Georgia one would be like.  In Illinois we used to go to one not too far from our house and out in the country . . . I remember lots of snow and it being so cold that we would all huddle in a big barn around a fire, and there was always hot chocolate and candy canes.  The farm we went to this time was different–it was in someone’s back yard, for one thing, and even thought it was pretty it did seem strange to be getting a Christmas tree when it was 60 degrees outside.

I won’t complain one bit about 60 degree Decembers, though.  It’s been perfect for running, which I did not do once this weekend even though it was perfectly nice out.  I spent way too much time being lazy, taking naps and reading a biography on Katherine Anne Porter.  Not one bit productive, and it’s not making the holidays come any faster  . . .

PS–Happy birthday to my brother-in-law, Danny the Antagonizer (formerly known as Super Cute, Super Style Guy on Flickr).

    It’s definitely been really nice with the 60 degree highs these past few days! I like not having to bundle up too much.
    Your dress is super pretty and I love the pictures of the tree farm. I’ve never had a real christmas tree!

    love the pictures. we went to a tree farm last winter to pick up our christmas tree and it was really great. even though the pictures would have looked very different from yours. we had a lot of snow and it was all so frosty and cold – but when we finally found our little tree, we were very, very happy.
