Cardigan - sister's, dress - Asos, jewelry - selfmade/antique/gift, leggings - Forever 21, boots - Spring
So, it's Christmas day and I'm currently anticipating the arrival of a few friends for some post-Christmas-dinner fun. I've had a decent week - ups, downs, extreme disappointments, but all has turned out well. And I feel more awake and alert than I have in the past... month? Yeah.
I'm wearing two gifts from my aunt - a beautiful bracelet she purchased in Saudi Arabia and boots that I posted on here a while back! I love jewelry with some weight to it with interesting details, and how cool is it that it's from half way around the world?! And I think it's so thoughtful that she bought these after seeing them on here.
All in all, this Christmas season has been a success. I still have IOUs in place for a few people, but everything is on track. The cookies I made (in a giant pot since I had no mixing bowl large enough) are a hit and I've been pleasantly surprised in a heartwarming way more than once. Even if I'm not a fan of the weather and such, there's just a certain care that people exude when dealing with loved ones. I'm glad that I spent this holiday with many people who are so close to my heart.
