to my dearest darling December,
i don't like that 6:45am rolls in dark and it's when i must rise.
i dislike the blustery wind and damp air (is it rain? is it snow? what is this shit?).
i loathe that it takes socks, a bathrobe layer AND two throws in my lap to warm up.
but of the 31 days you give me, a good majority of them are in celebration of something or other.
holidays, whichever you may follow.
minutes hours in the day daydreaming about the cookies to bake,
the cakes to decorate,
the savories to make,
the crafts to create.
then i actually do it.
this mollifies me.
good save, December, you were on thin ice for a second there.
this year i made six ornaments for bigk's birthday. because that's how many came in a pack. i used lyrics from madonna & dave matthews, quotes from Harry Potter, Twilight (don't judge us!), Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, and Pride & Prejudice. this craft project was inspired by this ornament i found on pinterest, tho it is no longer an item on etsy.
