here's to happiness {by Elease}

happy monday bloggers! i can't believe it is less than one week until christmas. my shopping has just begun and mr. taylor is finally home from the big apple. in sight of all my last minute craziness, i have set up one of my blogger bff's to entertain you with her beauty and perfect blogging-ness. i can't wait for you all to fall in love with her as much as i have! seriously, i dare you not to try!!!
oh, and could that christmas card be any cuter?


10 things that make Elease terribly happy

1. pandora constantly playing christmas classics. it never gets old. 
2. eggnog, peppermint, cinnamon and pine. all scents christmas are my weaknesses. 
3. there's nothing quite like cozying up to a fire with lovebird. so romantic and snuggly. 
4. the hustle and bustle of it all; wrapping, shopping, cooking and crafting.
5. the indescribable feeling you experience as a child on christmas morning.
6. my belief in that little babe in Bethlehem one christmas long ago. 
7. performing {and watching} the nutcracker time after time, year after year.
 8. traditions, traditions, traditions! so many to cherish, and now so many to start with lovebird. 
9. "love actually." my favorite holiday movie. {okay, maybe my favorite of all time}
10.  home {salt lake city} awaiting us with a white christmas each year. 

so happy to share my holiday favorites with you!
i'm excited to read yours. 
merry christmas.
