we love december

 December is HERE! I love this month. My birthday was yesterday, on the 1st. I turned 33 and spent my birthday eve at my favorite local dive dancing alongside candle bearing Catrinas with 

Mariachi Ghost

.  It was both laid back and energetic, picture perfect without the pictures. My birthday was spent with family, and made me feel so lucky to have a group of people who love me like they do. Thank you for the birthday wishes on instagram and twitter. You guys know how to make a girl feel special.

This month we celebrate my sister in laws birthday, Todd's dads birthday, and Lukes birthday. Then it'll be Christmas Eve, and lastly we'll ring in the new year on the beaches of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. It's going to be an exhausting but fun filled month.

We started off December with a cute Santa Lucia advent calender from good ol' Ikea (Winnipeg's store opened last week). In each box, Luke finds a note that either gives him a little hint to where he can find a treat somewhere in the house (yesterday's was an activity book), or tells him something fun we're going to do that day. This afternoon we're going for a sleigh ride and picking out our Christmas tree. He loves it.

What are some of the things you're looking forward to this month?
