i'd like to, please

Hope #27.

Build a gingerbread house.

I am so excited about this that I might even make two this year.

(My I'd Like To, Please posts are inspired by Someday Hopes. And the picture can be found here!)


Psst. I cannot even begin to think about how I am going to fit everything in over the next few weeks. I have reading to be done and essays to be written and presents to be made. (The latter is shaping up to be a ridiculous fantasy, I think). But I need to do these things well, and at the same time, I intend to soak up as much festive spirit as I can. I look forward to this time of year more than any other--but as I get older, I start seeing the stress of it. The pace and the speed of time. It's the same for everybody, right? How do you manage?

I hope to post festively as frequently as I can--maybe, just maybe, some holiday gift-guides!--and in the mean-time, you can always check out my holiday inspired Pinterest board.


  1. I love the idea of frequent, festive posts!!! I know what you mean about it getting a bit more stressful; I think we just have to remember to look at it through the eyes of our inner child :) Good luck with everything, I'm sure you'll get it all done with time to spare :) And your pinterest is amazing!!!!

    Thank you so so much for all of your beautiful comments. xoxo

  2. I know exactly what you mean.. December is always the busiest month at university. There's one paper to write, some exams.. But also, I lovelovelove Christmas time and I'm really looking forward to the next weeks :)
