(My favorite girl nestled up in her new favorite blanket)

I’ve been on the vacation for the last day and a half, so as an effort to ‘unplug’ and relax, I’ll be turning in a day early this week. We are taking the family to the cabin for a pre-thanksgiving this weekend, and getting a head start on some of the Christmas decorating. After this weekend starts the busiest weeks of the year at work, so I’ll be taking the opportunity to do a whole lot of nothing but lounging by the fire, drinking coffee in my pajamas, and getting fresh mountain air. As always, you can follow along on The M.A. Times adventures through Instagram here. Hope everyone has a great weekend
