Somehow this week just flew by – it never seems to me like there’s enough time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. So, I guess all there is to do about it is to slow down with things like cocoa and cookies in between all of the rushing around. Oh, and how about a chocolate tasting? That’s what my honey and I are doing this evening at one of my favorite little shops here in Austin, and it sounds like just my kind of night. How about you? How are you taking time to savor the holiday season? Hmmm…. savor…. I think that’s my new word.

Give the gift of root beer.

Modest Peach sent me a bracelet, and it’s named after me! I’m blushing…

Have a happy weekend lovelies!

It is definitely starting to feel like the holidays around here. I’ve started a bit of my holiday shopping, drinking chocolate is making regular appearances in our apartment, and there’s even talk of snow! In Texas! What are you doing to get in the holiday spirit? How about some of these great links from around the web this week (like roasting chestnuts!)…

How wonderful that we get this day every year to take stock of those things we’re grateful for. There are so many things in my life for which I am grateful, and you, my dear readers, are one of them. Thank you for everything you do, and for helping to make Snippet & Ink what it is. And before everyone heads out for the beginning of the holiday feasting and family good-times, a mid-week, pre-holiday list of links for you!

What a fun week! I got to meet up with all the awesome folks at the A Bryan Photo workshop in Birmingham (my talk went well – thank you to everyone for the well wishes), and then last night I got to hang out with Leila from Be Inspired since she’s in town for a couple of days – it’s so fun for me to actually spend time with real people, since so much of my day involves working solo from my computer. No big plans for the weekend, but it’s always nice to spend time with my honey. I’m still not back to reading very many blogs, but here are a few links that I just had to share with you.

Scratch-n-Sniff holiday cards.

Not really a hat person, but maybe I could be.

I’d love to get one of these Thanksgiving invites in the mail.

Happy weekend lovelies! I have a real wedding for you tomorrow, and a few posts next week before signing off for the holiday.

In addition to stepping back a bit from my own blogging, I’ve actually held off reading other blogs for a little while, so I don’t have as many wonderful links to share with you this week as I usually do. But some of these are such charming things I’ve had bookmarked for awhile, so even if you’ve already seen them, they’re good for a smile….

Mmmmm… pastries…. Paris….

Musical birds on a wire.

If only treadmills were actually this much fun.

Touching strangers.

Guerrilla wedding in the Met. This might just be the way to go.

I heart Richard Avedon – if you can get to this exhibit before it closes, you won’t regret it.

Well lovelies, that’s all the links for this week. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have! And a big thank you once again for all of your support and kind words – my heart is filled to overflowing to know that there is a community here that, though I might not be able to see it, is certainly palpable and real. Have a happy happy weekend!
