How is it already Friday? And how are there still eight gazillion emails in my inbox? I’ve clearly been having way too much fun visiting with my mom and my little sister, which involves lots and lots of laughing. Anyway, despite my lack of blog productivity in the first week of 2010, I do have some fun links for you to enjoy before you head out for the weekend…

Today is a big day… my trip to the post office to mail out all of my Christmas goodies. It’s right around this time that I realize I should have started this whole process six weeks earlier, just to avoid the goat rodeo that is the post office the week before Christmas. So wish me luck with that. Also, don’t forget to check back later today when I’ll announce the winner of the Ban.do holiday giveaway! But until then, here are some delightful links from around the web this week…

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.

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!
