The Holi Holi Holidays are NEAR. . .

Maybe cause its dreary. . .foggy. . .and COLD out today in Nashville. . .


Maybe cause I have been struck with the Strep and in the house for the last week. . .


Maybe cause yesterday I watched a marathon of British ( inspired ) films: Notting Hill , Love Actually, Much Ado About Nothing and a fav THE HOLIDAY. . .


Maybe its the Christmas Decor that is slowly taking its place in my house. . .


It makes me dream of being in London & being with some of our best friends!

Don’t get me wrong I LOVE Nashville and I LOVE Nashville during the Holidays. . . Just wishing London Town wasn’t an 8 hr flight away today.

There is something about a BIG city during the Holidays? Do you Agreee? Do you have a BIG city fav this time of year.

London and New York ahhhhh Big city Christmas lights!

And don’t you just love this pic!! I took it on our last visit to London in 2009. We were sitting in a cafe just down from Trafalgar Square, when I looked out the window to find a classic London Cab advertising good ol Nash!
I had forgotten how much I loved this pic! In fact it is being printed to a ginormous size and will be proudly hanging over my couch soon.

A N Y W A Y S. . .

The Holiday’s are here ( well NEAR!)

How are you getting ready. . .

Last week my friend Lindsey posted on Christmas Music. . . And I need. . . I NEED to say that I CANNOT stop listening to Mindy Smith’s My Holiday! Its been out for a while and for the last couple years it remains on constant repeat in our house! But Thanks to Lindsey’s readers I have added some new music to our playlist.

So if you are in the mood to expand the playlist check out the comments!

Also. . . Since Thanksgiving is NEXT week I needed to share another Holiday fav. Now for the record I am not a BIG candle / scent person.

However, NEST makes a Pumpkin Chai Candle that you are going to need burning in your house! Trust Me!

And Its time to get your Warm Hat, Toboggan, knit cap . . . whatever lovely name you prefer. Its time to get it on!

I am awaiting the arrival of my Krochet Kids Hat I ordered . . . If you are looking for a new hat PLEASE check them out. . .

You BUY a Hat YOU change a Life!

They are empowering women in Northern Uganda! Great stuff!

And you Can’t forget a scarf for your neck!!!

I love that my friends over at Mocha Club have started the FashionABLE campaign

Amazing Scarves made by Amazing women in Ethiopia!!

Well. . . This was a short Pre Holiday Loves List. I am sure there will be more to come!

Until then. . .

I am off to hang a wreath on my door.

Its the first step to this Holiday Home!

Juli Jarvis - The White House Christmas tree just arrived in our town this afternoon! It was very exciting — lots of people went out for the festivities — the high school band played, Santa Clause and Smokey the Bear delighted the children, and we wrote our names on the banner. They also had an official western style “hanging” of the tree crew — something our Chamber “Wild Bunch” does to welcome celebrities to our town. Very special for us — first time the tree has come from Wyoming! You can track the progress on their blog – — and should see Buffalo in the pics soon!
