See that tree? It’s looking a little lonely because I am extremely behind on my Christmas to-do list. Not a single present, star or much in the way of decor. With just 2 weeks to go, that’s very unlike me. But it’s okay - it will get done. Or it won’t. Either way, I’ll just sit here watching the tree twinkle and enjoying some hot cocoa. (Yes, I really am!) Cheers to bedtime.
British Christmas magazines take the (Victoria Sponge) cake! Back to reality today after an amazing time in Lapland but had to share this gem of a Christmas decorated living room by @frank.interiorslondon seen on the cover of @livingetcuk This trip has totally put me behind on my holiday to-do list but this is just the kind of inspiration to get me going. What do you think of it?
Waving goodbye to Lapland but not before a good sledding run. We rode in open sleighs, mushed husky dogs, played in the snow and found Santa. This place is so gorgeous and we have made lots of happy memories here in our short visit. But if I never have to “help” my kids put on/take off their snowsuits, boots, hats and mittens again, it will be too soon. 😂 I’ll post more about the trip in a blog post soon but needless to say, we had a blast! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask here. #wintervacation #canterburytravel #luosto #laplandfinland #visitlapland #travelwithkids #familytravel #momneedsanap #searchforsanta #beautifullapland

We made it! Getting ready for a couple of snow filled days in Lapland hunting for Santa 🎅 I don’t throw around the term “bucket list” lightly but this is definitely on it. Fingers crossed I’m on the nice list.
Currently debating getting a King bed (we currently have a queen size). What say you hive mind? Is it worth the trade offs?
The portrait was hung by the wine rack with care... I’m still putting away Halloween stuff so don’t even think about posting your Christmas tree, you lunatics. ✋🤚 ✋🤚 I kid, I kid. I’m just not quite ready to get on the holiday bandwagon until all the good trick or treating candy has been eaten. Who is with me? Give me a few weeks and I’ll be jingling my bells. Until then I’m going to admire this painting we found while we were in Massachusetts last month. Isn’t she pretty? What should we call her?
I'm just like any modern woman trying to have it all. Loving husband, a family. It's just, I wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade. Happy Halloween from my little dark creatures to yours. Another crazy year in the books. This one is special because amazing photographer and neighbor @jasonrothphoto was so kind to take this shot of all four of us (yes! Mom in the shot!). You have no idea how excited I am to have a proper ghoulish portrait of this years family costumes to treasure when I’m old(er) and grey. #halloweeninbrooklyn #familycostume #addamsfamily #halloweenlife #brooklynhome #brooklynfamily
