Can you tell how excited Bailey and I are for the holidays? We’ve been celebrating by drinking lots of peppermint mochas (or tree stand water), admiring (or knocking over) our little Christmas tree and cuddling while watching The Holiday almost every single day (until around 3 am when it’s time to run under the Christmas tree and around the apartment like a possessed creature).  This little 5’5” tree was the perfect addition…
