First Christmas together. A little grainy, but very happy. :)

Reading The Skimm first thing every morning.  Best daily news email ever.

Listening to even more Christmas music (if that’s possible) than usual this year, courtesy of dating a guy who’s a Snow Globe.

Learning everything about Teddy and Franklin Delano, via Ken Burns’ 7-part documentary on Netflix.  Fascinating.

Digging everything made by this ethical and sustainable brand, especially this cute dress(<– Those are affiliate links, if you’d like to check them out!)

Feeling extra thankful lately for my Burmese refugee friend, SiSi, and for her generous gift to Kansas City.

Giving out my favorite savory treat to friends for Christmas this year, in lieu of cookies.

Tuning in daily to read the courageous stories being shared right now on HONY.

Trying to decide a subject for my “Ebright Talk”, one of my favorite new family traditions.

Loving every word of this beautiful essay about responding to current events with hope.

  1. So happy for you! Thanks for the link to Threads 4 Thought- super cute (and comfy) looking clothes.

  2. Hi Ali!!

    Just discovered your blog and I’m in LOVE!! Your recipes speak to my hungry belly so I know my family will LOVE you just as much for supplying us with new found recipes to try. I’m looking forward to trying as many as I can.
    Thank you again for the inspiring photos, simple ingredients, and recipes that invite.
    Holiday hugs to the both of you from beautiful Oregon! :D

    • Thanks Ania, that’s so very sweet of you – we’re happy you like the blog! Happy holidays! :)

  3. The band is not bad at all – she has a beautiful voice.

    Also did you buy that dress? Perfect for your style! 

  5. Oh, my, why am I just now discovering your blog? I am loving The Snow Globes! Have a blessed day!

    • Thanks for checking out the blog Teresa, we hope you enjoy some of the recipes! :)

  6. I love Threads for Thought too! I thought I was the only one, but glad to know I’m not. I’ve also decided that, with our food and fashion preferences, it’s a shame we don’t live in the same city. I could always used a new cooking/ shopping/ sharing buddy. You and your boyfriend are adorbs too!
