Happy Thursday ladies. It’s also Christmas Eve and Jólabókaflóð in Iceland! This tradition of exchanging books and drinking cocoa on Christmas Eve is also called the Christmas Book Flood. How fun is that?
This tradition started during World War II when paper was one of the few things that was not rationed in Iceland. It has become a cultural phenomenon that I can wholeheartedly embrace. Books can be tricky gifts to choose but are always welcome in our house.
Here are some great books I’ve either read or have on order:
Do you have some great titles to share? What’s on your list to read next?
This is as red as I’ve gone with my wardrobe this holiday and I’m finding it very festive! I hesitated to buy these Birdies because my daughter isn’t over the moon about hers, but I’m wearing them all the time! They run very generously through the toe box so I’m finding them super comfortable on my wide feet.
I’m wearing an 8 petite in the pants, a regular medium in the sweater, and a regular large in the vest which is way too large for me. I like the length but I need the small one.
I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season. Your presence and comments are what make this blog what it is and I am extremely grateful for each one of you.
I will be with my family tomorrow and back here on Saturday for our regular would you wear it.
Make it a great one and remember to treat yourself with love and kindness.
