blissful silence.

I can be really wordy sometimes... I know this. 
I can be really introspective and really reflective and really, well, writer-y.

But sometimes--especially when I'm so busy and energetic and lighthearted that I don't even have time to think--the words just aren't there... In their place, there's a sort of blissful silence. A delightful quiet. It's rare for me, this peace, and it's the simplest of joys.

Presents are wrapped, family is in town, and snow keeps falling.
And I'm just feeling really, really, it's-almost-Christmas happy right now.

... I love this time of year.

This is totally off subject (not that I don't LOVE what you've written), but where did you get your gloves? They're adorable!
PS, I love your blogs and your writer-y-ish-ness. :)

Thanks for all the sweet comments, everyone! FYI, scarf is from Gap a few years ago, gloves are brand new--from Aldo :)

Cute photo of you. Love the gloves, by the way. Although, do your fingers get cold?
Agree on your post as well. Sometimes, silence can say so much.
