Cheers to the Weekend 11.30.18


*some links are affiliate, we deeply appreciate your support

It’s the last day of November. Is anyone else feeling complete disbelief that it’s nearly December?! I’ve been struggling to accept the changing seasons and holidays since early fall. I know, I need to get with it already! Thankfully, Christmas decor is slowly creeping out of hiding and taking over every open space, so it’s really only a matter of time. You just can’t ignore the warm ambiance of those twinkling lights! We both have plans to get Christmas trees this weekend with our families, and Michaela has the first holiday party of the season to attend on Saturday night. What are you up to this weekend, friends? Has anyone else started decorating?

What We're Reading

Michaela - Broken record here….War and Peace! Still chugging away, still loving it, and the end is near!

Rikki - I’m so happy to be back to finishing the last half of Other People’s Love Affairs, along with the last third of A Little Life. Despite saying I didn’t want to pick up anything else, I’ve also started Uprooted and A Place for Us, we’ll see if I actually commit to finishing either one.
