The Casting Dock

Ushering in the Christmas season…

‘Twas a holly jolly weekend.

Full of Christmas parties, long sunny walks on unseasonably warm days, lovely Saturday morning breakfasts with good friends (Jer and I divided and conquered here hence the plural breakfastsss), Christmas and birthday gift making (getting in touch with my crafty side), a cozy/rainy Sunday morning with my main man Clive Staples, errand-running, the Pats demolishing the Bears (sorry, Keith…), and quality time with my adorable husband and wonderful friends. Sadly I have no pictures to document this holly jolly weekend…well, none except for that sweeeet picture of my hot chocolate stirring sticks for Christmas party #2 on Saturday night. I was pretty proud of them.

I am SO SO SO grateful to be back in Beverly. Even though my job situation isn’t quite ideal just yet (but we’re making big strides…), I looooove so many things about being back here. Literally at some point every day as I am driving around, I just smile and think I love it here. Between the gorgeous sunsets, proximity to the ocean, old, historic buildings, Jerry’s perfect job at Gordon, and the fabulous community–what’s not to love? (answer: crazy taxes, insane wind, and poorly paved roads…at least that’s where my list stands for now…I’m sure it will increase as my [second] honeymoon phase comes to a close). BUT the pros far outweigh the cons…

it was a swell time hanging out with you this weekend at our double parties!

I’m glad that you like it — you do have a nice little setup. It’s funny… You used to be the least east coast of the kids and now you’re the most by a margin.

Who would have thought the girl who asked, “You lived here?” would end up loving it so? Now just get the winter sun to stay out a bit longer and I’m with you! I want some hot chocolate.

Jenna, thanks first for the comments (you know how I love those) and second for pumping my ego about my sweet stirring sticks (again, me. love. that.)…those ones do look good, but not quite as good as mine… :)

And Bry, as always, I appreciate you being my number one fan…or maybe in contention for number one fan spot (Jer is in the running)…but definitely one of my two biggest fans…
