I'm so happy it's the weekend. Have you ever had one of those weeks where you find yourself saying, "If I can just get through this week...If I can just get through this week..." This week was one of those weeks for me. The schools are abuzz with programs, there's last minute shopping to be done and decorating to be finished. Tonight I plan on putting the final touches on our second tree and stamping my Christmas cards to be mailed out in the morning. I wasn't originally planning on dressing up the envelopes of my Christmas cards with some simple calligraphy but when my close friend Danna inspired me, I couldn't resist trying my hand at it. It was so fun! We decided to take a calligraphy class next year to hone our skills. Have you ever practiced this lost art? I bought a kit years ago and never followed up on my skills so put that on my resolution list for 2014.
Speaking of friends, today I got to have lunch and finally meet my long time blog friend, Jewel of Eat Drink Shop Love. She really lives up to her name and is such a sweet person. It's always refreshing to meet someone in person and actually have a conversation with them. Stop by her blog for some great gift ideas if you get a chance. How do you plan to spend one of the last weekends of the year? Will you be scrambling to tie up loose ends or are you kicking back and relaxing?
