December Currently

It's one of my favorite Linkys with the one and only Farley!!!

Listening: I am obsessed with my Holiday Albums! I talking Mariah Carey "Merry Christmas," the soundtrack from "The Best Man Holiday," and Idina Menzel "Holiday Wishes."

Loving: I come from a a really BIG family (check my bio), but I don't live in the same city as any of them. I am in L-O-V-E with being able to spend time with my family during the holidays. If you follow me on Instagram you've probably noticed lots of family pictures! If not, I'll give you a little taste. For Thanksgiving my fiance and I went to Ohio to visit with his family, and we'll be in Miami for Christmas. As a bonus, one of my sisters in currently spending the night with my niece and flying out tomorrow. 

Thinking: I have to catch up on my holiday decorating. Last year was my first Christmas in my cozy house so I was inspired to decorate after a L-O-N-G renovation. I need to kick it into gear!
Wanting: Nothing at all! I probably write this for every Currently, but I am blessed beyond measure.
Needing: A clone! The next three weeks are filled with travel for work. I'll be at my alma mater FSU this week, NOLA next week, and Cincinnati the week before the break. This time of year I am very thankful for Precheck (AKA keep on your shoes and laptops stays in your bag) and my airline status because it keeps me sane during holiday travel. I also need my alma mater FSU to STOP raising my blood pressure every football game ;-)

Giving: Every year I participate in the Angel Tree Fellowship with my church. We adopt kids whose parents are in prison and buy gifts on behalf of their parents. I absolutely LOVE this program and am excited for the kids we are giving to this year!

In the spirit of giving I am also giving away my Native American unit! It's here! If you have issues opening (it's a large file) just email me! Seasons Greetings! 


  1. my parents always took us to the mall when I was little and we got to pick an angel off of the tree… I loved that and this reminded me to go and start this tradition with Bub…

    thanks so much for linking up!!!
    and now I am going to have to go check out all of your music suggestions

  2. I love Idina and all of your other holiday music selections (in fact i'm humming a few to myself as I type right now). You must be a traveling pro...I would love to see your packing tips and tricks..if you have any! Oh my goodness...the angel program is amazing! I definitely need to keep an eye out for something like that around here! I am so glad I found your adorable blog!

    Safe travels!!
