On Friday night, we went to a free viewing of Home Alone in the Lucas Theater downtown. Before the show we went to Five Guys and then snuck in leftover fries for the movie. Best date. All the kids in that theater had such a great time and squealed and laughed at every funny part, which made it so much more fun. After the movie they even had fake snow right outside the theater, which despite the 70 degree high that day, I sort of fell for at first.
We went on a long walk all around downtown on Saturday, Christmas shopping and taking in how great Savannah is in December. We stopped for lunch at my favoriteplace in Savannah for a beautiful sandwich and duck fat fries.
Sunday night we went to a little Christmas party at our friend’s house. I forgot we were doing white elephant until it was almost too late. But I ended up making some little ornaments with fabric, stamps, and twigs, some of my favorite things. It was so much fun and our friends’ house was so cozy and festive (don’t you love the mantle and Christmas bells?).
It’s easy for me to think of all the things I don’t have and get caught up missing my family and being pouty this time of year. But lately I am seeing so many amazing things God has put in my life that it seems ridiculous to ever complain about anything. This time of year really beats any other time if you ask me. I love everything about it.

Look at Savannah these days…I’m so proud. It’s turning into a foggy, multi-colored, acorn covered wonderland.
Side Note: Sooo…let’s just say, I have been busier with school than I would like to be. And I have a cold. And I have been wishy washy with decision making in terms of my education. But I am excited about next semester at school and the holidays are so so close. The fall foliage only makes me happier.
p.s. This adorable man has a birthday today. He taught me so many things and I miss him everyday. Happy Birthday, Dad!!! xoxo

Jeff got a new bike and started riding to work* (!!!) We spontaneously/accidentally went on a ten mile bike ride as soon as he got it put together. I have decided it’s my very favorite form of excercise. Makes me miss these days.
I’ve been eating a lot of yogurt and drinking a lot of iced lattes. I made some frozen yogurt pops with plain yogurt, mixed berries, and simple syrup (frozen in a mason jar with a spoon). My favorite thing for breakfast this week: yogurt topped with granola and honey, gala apple with peanut butter and honey, + iced vanilla latte.
I am helping out with a girl’s camp at church and we make lots of crafts. Some of the kids call me “Miss Chloé” which is weird to me but very cute. Anxious-excited to start art education next week!
