For my fellow American friends, I am wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving. And for my Jewish friends, Happy Hanukkah! ۞
Since Halloween, I’ve been in absolute Christmas mode. I’ve ordered my tree and had it up 2 weeks before Thanksgiving, started shopping for gifts, wrapping them and have been watching my favorite Christmas movies. All the while enjoying Silk – Seasonal Nog and So Delicious – Coconut Mint Chocolate Milk in my coffee!! Now that it’s officially in full swing, I’m going to try and hit many Christmas sites in Los Angeles. ❄ ❅ ❆
Since I am unable to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family in Seattle, I sent them a gift box filled with their favorite chocolates, cookies, candies, cheeses, crackers and of course, a card and photo of me. But, I also sent some of my papa in miniature urns for them because that way the family is all together this Holiday. I’m laughing at the thought of them pulling him out of the box and them going “That’s Amber for you~! Dad would be happy that she put him next to the truffles” Some people find my approach to life and death a little intense with it’s black comedy. But, my family is considered eccentric by most peoples standards, so I think they understand. And I am thankful for a lot this year.
I am spending Thanksgiving with my fur-babies and wishing someone was in Los Angeles on this day, but I’m not lonely. I’ve cooked myself a small but overly decadent and delicious meal, went out for coffee and taking a long walk in hopes of burning a few of those calories consumed. *laugh* How I love to bake and cook~!!!!
Rosemary heart shaped bread, pumpkin ravioli in rosemary and garlic brown butter, Cabernet sauvignon and cheesecake with macerated berries and dark chocolate.
Going for my coffee and walk in this bunny jacket, it’s not figure flattering but so warm~! I’ve been living in these knit shorts, so cozy~! I’ll be doing a winter fashion capsule soon.
Love you all,
