Letter From The Editor: DECEMBER (Plus FFF Winter Unboxing)

Letter From the Editor:

I feel like November totally got the shaft. One second, it was all fall and pumpkins and leaves, and then those were brushed away and it became Christmas overnight. On November 1st. Maybe we needed it earlier this year?

Regardless, November was a fun month with lots of activity, like the Harry Potter Pub Crawl I attended--I appreciate the fandom! It was awesome--someone was dressed as the Sorting Hat, for example.

I went home twice--my first nephew turned 8. And then a couple of days later, it was Thanksgiving. I gave up on posting and decided to relax, although this makes my 7th post this week, so not sure how much resting I did! I enjoyed visiting with my mom/step-dad's fam and then my late father's side. This is going to sound crazy, but my Daddy was still very much there. It didn't make me sad and I would smile whenever I'd see his pic. It was a good month. A very, very fast month.




December

But let's talk about December. I see this as the most magical month. I love the coziness of it all--the weather, the memories, and the peace. The unity. We need that.

In the midst of the chaos of shopping and wrapping, the visiting all of the family, I make sure to step back and appreciate it all. To breathe. Christmas was the last time I saw my Daddy as I knew him, so I'm extra appreciative now. Life is too short. Take lots of pics of your Dad, your family. Trust me on this. It's gonna be a good month. I'm open to the fun and happiness it will bring.

FabFitFun Winter Unboxing


I always look forward to opening gifts (who doesn't?), even if I buy them for myself! December is when the FabFitFun Winter box comes out and I *just* got mine. It's $49.99 per box, but every box is always over $200 in value. Visit fabfitfun.com if you're interested. And I bought this box fyi, so this isn't sponsored or anything.

Above you can see what I got, but I made a video where I go through and explain everything. PLUS THERE'S MORE! I bought a bunch of Add-On's, that only my subscribers can see, so check it out below:


AND CHARLIE IS IN IT. That should be enough right there to watch. And it's only 6 minutes. But seriously, let me know what you think of the video. I work hard on these dang things!

What are you looking forward to this month?

  6. Oh my gosh! How cute are you and Charlie!! I love your matching sweaters!! Looks like it was a great box, I am going to check out the beach butter body cream. I'm always looking for creams in the winter for my dry skin and I've never heard of Anderson Lilley -- I love trying new brands! Have a great weekend, Elle!

I can't wait to one day have kids and be able to do all the fun things with them that goes with Christmas. I need that phone mount for my car! That candle is beautiful.

  24. I feel like November flew by too so I'm going to make an effort to slow down and enjoy the holiday season and end of the year.
