Feeling that Christmas Glee

Hellooooooo! 🎄

This gorgeous tree belongs to my local Dutch Brothers Coffee, which I had the pleasure to sit by the other day while I worked! 💙 I had to snap a photo of it. Isn’t it stunning?

As it gets closer to Christmas, I find myself feeling extra joyful. I just love all the decorations and lights…that by itself makes the holiday for me! It doesn’t take much to fascinate me. I’m literally like a kid.

I put together a last, fun Christmas outfit, as I don’t have anything spectacular I’m going to wear for Christmas Day itself. But I like what I came up with here. You’ve got green, red, some random birds on my shirt, and baby pink gloves.

I only took two photos because the lighting outside was WEIRD…

My friend and I went for an early evening walk this past week, and the weather was sooo beautiful!! Just look at the sunset with the light hitting the tree tops.

I’m definitely a spring and summer person, and I overlook the beauty of winter sometimes. Not this year! I definitely am taking the time to appreciate it. The grey bleakness, chilled breeze, and foggy nights are definitely a beauty to behold in itself.

The great thing about nature is that it’s always there. You are literally never alone! 💜 I’ve always felt this way; even as a kid, I felt the company of nature and the weather anywhere I went. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized how truly beautiful of a feeling it is.

Christmas in Berlin, illustrated by me! That’s the Brandenburg Gate in the background. Creating this, I wanted it to convey hope, reunification, and Christmas magic universally felt by all, no matter where you are in the world.

See you next time! Have a Merry Christmas!! 🎄

  1. That blue tree is beautiful! My great aunt always had a blue Christmas tree, which I loved, and this reminds me of it. Your outfits, as always, are adorable. Your green skirt in the first one is really striking, and your blouse screams “Put a bird on it! (from “Portlandia.”). Your red coat in the second one is lovely and kind of Victorian against your floral skirt. Overall, it’s such a great picture – the Hope fence in the background really makes it! Kind of like the Brandenburg Gate in your awesome illustration. Your subject looks like she’s contemplating the wonder of winter — not unlike her creator! Merry Christmas. 🙂
