i miss the guy. i'm not over it (obviously). sometimes i think i'm doing ok, and then i stop being busy and i'm alone with myself and i break down. i love him and christmas without him is going to blowww.
anyway, to try to encourage my christmas spirit, i got myself a little christmas tree tonight. it's ridiculous.
why yes, it is ridiculous and bright (and i mean BRIGHT) blue.
to go with it i also picked up this crazy cherry ornament and hot pink pine cones. i figured it would go with my 50s kitschy table. the lights are also pink!
it did brighten my holiday mood a bit. i am making pretty much everyone (except my parents and brother's) christmas presents. everyone is getting christmas goodies. i'm in the process of making homemade, from scratch christmas cookies right now, and i will make my famous chocolate peanut butter balls later this week. they are crazy delicious and decadent (and a big pain in the ass, hence why i pretty much only do them once a year). i'm making my girlfriends each little gifts that are either crocheted or sewn (but since i don't know if they read my blog, that will be a secret til after xmas).
hopefully my new year gets a bit brighter.
