Alan's been busy with his new job and studying for finals, and I've been busy hanging out with my mom and eating everything she makes. Between our two schedules, our apartment's been looking a little dreary for this time of year. I came home one day and decided to make merry. First, I pulled out our ornaments, sparkly garland, and string of lights.
Then I made a hot cup of tea and ate a plate of chocolate rings covered in sprinkles. Because sprinkles make everything nice.
And I found a spot for our glittery mini tree. This might sound blasphemous, but I think we might skip getting a real tree this year! Last year we went to a Santa Cruz tree farm to chop one down, and it died within two weeks. I think I'm still recovering from that tragedy.
