Where has December gone? I feel like this month has flown by, and cannot believe that it is almost Christmas! I must say that it has been an incredibly fun month, and a great way to end 2013. Here's a look at what has been happening in my life lately. December was a busy month creating and shipping out lots of orders from my Simply Jessica Marie Etsy Shop! Everyone really seemed to love the Cyber Monday deals, so this month was busier than usual and I was incredibly grateful for it. I also had the chance to paint some abstract acrylic paintings for my apartment. I will be adding these paintings, along with some different designs and sizes, to my Etsy shop in the new year! December also brought lots of fun memories! Like my first real snow living in Nashville, even if it was only a couple of inches, the Mistletoe Masquerade party I went to with some of my friends, and the holiday cookie exchange party I went to with my Making Things Happen Nashville group. I decided to decorate my little space with pink and gold Christmas decor this year! And of course, I had to send out hand-written Christmas cards. There's hardly any feeling better in the world than sending cheerful cards to friends! And now, my mom is here visiting in Nashville for the week, and we're headed down South to the land of the pines (aka North Carolina) on Sunday to celebrate Christmas at home! I hope that everyone is having an amazing holiday season so far, and that you get to spend lots of quality time with friends and family this year. Go ahead and eat far too many cookies, drink lots of eggnog and champagne, and kiss that special someone under the mistletoe!
