little things

hi friends!  So glad we al made it to Friday!
the winner of the 1000 Gifts book giveaway is Becky! Check your email for a message from me!

this week has been a crazy week.  busy, scatterbrained, rushed.  Advent is upon us and I want to make time to deliberately celebrate Christ's coming in the midst of this. Because Jesus is worth celebrating.
 I hope you have little things that are helping you celebrate, too!

I'm linking up with Lindsay at Aisle to Aloha for the little things linkup today!
Aisle to Aloha


..........ALL Black Friday orders are out! and my kitchen table is now decorated for Christmas! This was a huge blessing.

............ Advent is here!! If you haven't seen this Folk Angel video about Advent, go watch it.

I'm praying this Advent season that I anticipate Christ. Not the events, not the "stuff", but that I sit in eager anticipation for what He does in my heart.

........... We're headed to Austin after work today to see my sister in law graduate.  It always feels good to be back in Austin.

.......We started advent with Christmas cookie blue bell ice cream. Stellar Advent day one. If you haven't had Christmas Cookie ice cream, go get it.

.....THREE more days of class this semester! So thankful that my nights will be mine again!

......Our Advent calendar from Naptime Diaries is here, and it's GORGEOUS! I am so excited about celebrating all month long.
