Happy December!

It’s officially December people! Can you believe it?! I don’t know about you guys, but 2013 has flown by for me. I’m always amazed at people who have it together and are long done with Christmas shopping before December rolls around. Call me crazy but I actually like shopping during the holiday seasons. The Christmas music, the decorations, Santas at the mall, it’s all so festive and fun. I’m not saying I like waiting in long lines and having things be out of stock, but it’s all part of the fun.
So with today being the start of December, it’s time to start seriously thinking about Christmas shopping. I personally love journals. It’s a great way to write down your memories, lists, drawings and doodles and whatever else you want. I think it’s a great gift for the girls and women in your life. Here are a few of my favorites that I’ve come across.  Journals Galore

Friday Favorites: City Love

Hello there Friday! How are you all doing? Are you as ready for the weekend as I am?
I am continuing to link up for Friday Favorites with the lovely ladies of A Little Big of Everything Blog, Grace and Love Blog, and MomfessionalsFridayFavorites3_zpsea6fc451
Today I’m showing some of my favorite city posters. Chicago is my hometown and will always be home for me. It makes me very nostalgic and sentimental every time I think about it. When my boyfriend I first moved to LA, my best friend bought us a Chicago poster with the famous landmarks and buildings.
New York is such a a large city and is so iconic. It’s in so many movies and tv shows. Having visited NYC for the first time last year, it really did live up to and exceed my expectations. It’s got a real energy there and is so fast paced.
San Fran’s Golden Gate Bridge is another famous landmark that I love. San Fran is such a great city and is so unique. The steep hills, Alcatraz, the hikes, the weather, etc. It’s all so great.
