Let the Season Begin!


A few days ago, my friend Andrew received his December issue of Martha Stewart Living. Since seeing the festive cover, I've been chomping at the bit waiting for the magazine to arrive in my mailbox. Today, the wait is over! The December issue arrived in pristine condition.

After reading Andrews review of the December content, I couldn't wait to open the magazine and take in all the inspiration for this holiday season. My quick 'one through' of the magazine left me anxious to return for a more in depth look.

I have a ritual with my Martha Stewart Living magazines... when they arrive each month, I do the quick once over. Then, once dinner is completed, dishes are put away, and the kitchen floor is swept (yes, I do it every evening... it was a hint from Martha that I absolutely have taken to heart!), I sit down with my beverage of choice (hot chocolate sounds good!) and my magazine for a front to back read.

The holiday season can now officially begin! Two weeks until the decorating begins!

I would love to get a box of cookies like that, wouldn't you?! Enjoy the issue - I can't wait for mine!

I love your ritual, Kenn! I didn't know about the sweeping part. I'll have to try that! I think it's a terrific December issue!

I first thought this cover was a little too much, but have grown to truly enjoy looking at it. It's just a departure from the simplicity that I usually see. Makes one want to handcraft some cookies!
