Charcoal Sweater, Copper Skirt and Fringe Boots

Hi all, how's your week going? I'm moving along on my to-do list. I got all our holiday cards into the mailbox yesterday (though the mail carrier still has not arrived through all that snow from yesterday!). I wrapped some gifts last night and had the kids put bows on them today. I still need to sew three more things, wrap several gifts, and mail one package. 

I'd like to make Christmas cookies with the kids, and cut out paper snowflakes, and hang up our wreath. I think we have time for all of those things. That's plenty to do, but it still leaves us free time to relax and be spontaneous. 

Oh! I want to drive around looking at other people's lights and decorations, or go for an after-dark walk if it's warm enough one night. And go see the lights in downtown Denver. And that's enough! My family loves having lots of free time and not being over-booked, so we don't need to add anything else to the list. 

How do you feel about being busy? It's very fun to have a lot of activities and experiences! At this point, we happen to thrive with more time in between activities, but that's not true for everyone. When the kids are older, they may be happier doing more, and I'll try to accommodate that. I'm in a major homebody phase, so I'm glad the kids are on board with that for now!

Charcoal sweater, copper corduroy skirt (homemade), leggings and fringe ankle boots. This skirt is working out great for me! The color is reminiscent of the 1970s, which is trendy right now, but I think I will still like it after the trend is over. It's not bright, but it definitely adds some fun and interest to this otherwise-neutral-to-the-point-of-boring outfit!
