Rabbit Rabbit and Happy December! We’ve broken out the advent calendars. My daughter’s is filled with Sephora samples I collect all year and the others with small treats. It’s a nice way to count down the days until Christmas.
I bought Martha Stewart’s December magazine. Her monthly calendar always makes me smile. You have to hand it to the old gal: divorce, prison, and the ups and downs of her business empire, and she’s still setting up the cauldron for chestnut roasting and tending to her orchids. It’s nice to see she’s kept up with the times, using a drone to photograph her farm. I’m exhausted just reading her list! I mock, but I also have a weird amount of respect for her.
When I was young, my friend’s mother had a copy all of Martha Stewart’s books. She was the most extra mom we knew (she had a gift wrapping room like Candy Spelling and gifted the girls in her daughter’s friend group Gucci key chains.) Naturally, I thought I’d grow up to be like her.
I bought my own copy of Martha Stewart’s Christmas in university.
I can’t believe I ever thought it was normal to attempt 300 Christmas puddings in a weekend or build a five foot high gingerbread house. Still, I have a soft spot for Martha. Christmas would not be Christmas without her.
What are your plans for December? Are you planning to go full Martha?
