right this second…

I could not be happier:
to be leaving the snow.

don’t get me wrong, I think it’s really pretty and I love the blanket of powder that it’s left outside today, but…. I am SO happy to be traveling somewhere tropical. I’m leaving early tomorrow morning for the Philippines and so so excited. still hanging on to a cough that has left me a little hoarse, but I’m feeling a LOT better. thank you very much for your well wishes. I’ll be away from this space until January 12, but I promise to stop in and say hello. in the meantime, a dear friend of mine will be guest blogging the week of January 5 and I know she’ll have some great things to share with you.

until then…. au revoir my friends! and have the merriest of merry Christmases and a safe, happy New Year!!! don’t miss me too much. ;)

    Alyson, truly the Philippines?!? My husband owns “Pro Look Sports,” and co-owns a factory there and our family travels there a few times a year! It’s our second family, on the other side of the world! I hope you have a wonderful time, I was just checking in on your blog and can’t wait to see my new headers!

    right this second I am back in NYC and wearing short shorts. Thank goodness. I spent Christmas in ND where the weather barely broke 0 degrees.

    I don’t blame you for wanting to escape. Enjoy the holiday!
