A Christmas Classic

December 11, 2011

I haven’t been in the best of spirits for Christmas this year for a few reasons:
#1. This is my first Christmas away from my family. It’s not that bad, but I wish more than anything that Santa would sneak my 5’1” Mom under the tree and my 6’7” Pops through the chimney (which I don’t have).

#2. It’s not that cold and I haven’t seen one snowflake.

#3. This year has flown by and I’m thinking next weekend should smell like Thanksgiving. Wrong.

It wasn’t until earlier today when I keyed my Pandora station to “Christmas – Classics” and heard this:

which then turned into this:

I never thought I would say this, but thank you Biebs for spreading the Christmas Cheer (and thank you Pandora for considering him a classic)!


Friday Fav – Round 1

December 9, 2011

In my blog’s past life, we used to post pictures about our favorite things every Friday. In my blog’s past life, we used to hide under rocks and go missing for weeks.  Times have changed and we’re back.

While things have changed a bit, and I’m not going to bore you with 20+ pictures (let’s be honest, I can go overboard), but I’m going to start posting one picture of the week that sums up either 1) something I’ve learned, or 2) something I’ve fallen for.

Not to air my dirty laundry for you in great detail, but Mike and I had a little tiff this week. Yup, in all of my former posts about love and gushing over it, we have our ups and downs.  We get in fights and we sit in our own corners.  Over the week, we definitely learned a little more about one another by simply talking.  For a girl who talks nonstop it might be hard to imagine that sometimes I just can’t find the words to say.

What brought me to today’s Friday Fav is no matter who the person is, the fight you may have had, the words said, or the lack of love shown, you often have to endure the bad in order to appreciate the good.  Providing myself the advice I found in this picture – just know in the end everything is going to be okay.

Starting Fresh

December 8, 2011

It’s almost a new year, why not start fresh with a new blog.

Since I am really going to focus on posting more often, I figured it was time for a little Three Bracelets makeover. The original Three Bracelets is sticking around; not only is it a great archive space for all of my previous posts, but it is a great way for me to reflect on past chapters of my life and all of the sentimental value attached with that.

On to the next chapter of my life and the next chapter of Three Bracelets…
