'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Is anyone else having a hard time coming to terms with Christmas being over? I feel like I spent too much time running around trying to get things done that I didn't spend nearly enough time just enjoying myself. I guess it's just something to keep in mind for next year. Well, really it's something that I need to keep in mind all the time.

This shawl has quickly become one of my absolute favorite things to wear since I thrifted it a few weeks ago. It's such a fun piece, and surprisingly soft. The only downside is that it doesn't provide much warmth, but that'll just make it perfect for the warmer months! I took these photos in my sister's (now vacant) room on Christmas Eve morning. It was strange for her not to be there on Christmas, but at least now I get to use her room for pictures whenever I want now!

I hope you all had a beautiful holiday.
