TGIF! I’m so happy it’s Friday–we have a great weekend ahead! Tonight and Sunday will be really low key, but we have a packed day tomorrow with Millie’s grooming appointment, a visit to the Everlane Cashmere Truck + lunch at Union Market, and a cookie decorating/holiday gathering with friends. I’m also planning on getting in some cheesy holiday movies (more on this below) and working on my last few gift guides. Kristyn hosted our monthly supper club on Wednesday, we had our building’s holiday party yesterday, and I’m yet again reminded just how much I love this time of year. Hope you guys have a great one, and stay safe–but also enjoy snow–if you’re in the path of the impending storm!
Most people who have a blog will tell you that a large part of why they enjoy having one is because it serves as as a diary of sorts, helping chronicle life year after year even at times when the days are flying by. I love being able to look back on old posts (even some of the really old, cringeworthy ones) and remember where I was–physically or in life–at that time. It’s no secret that I love to travel and since that’s always a large part of my life, am so happy to have this platform to recap trips + share the highlights (and lowlights)! It was a busy year with three weddings, getting a dog, and me starting a new job, but I’m impressed how much we still managed to prioritize getting out of town. Things are already brewing for 2019 (including a spring trip to London!) and I can’t wait to see what else falls into place.
Here’s where we went in 2018!
Today’s gift guide is for the guys in your life, aka usually the most difficult to shop for! There’s a good variety of stuff on here that will hopefully get the wheels turning even if nothing specifically works for the guy(s) on your list. J owns many of these items and they’re ones he uses often, and I own the women’s version of some, too.
One more site update regarding gift guides: There’s now a page under the “Holiday” dropdown called “Holiday Gift Shop,” where you can shop the items from all my gift guides in one place. The items are labeled by category and I’ll be including more things relevant to older gift guides, too. Hopefully this is helpful for some of you who like to view everything in one place, rather than broken down by category!
