Drinking // Coffee...with a Lindor Chocolate stirred into it. If you haven't tried this already, I highly recommend it.

Loving // My new Canon camera! The clarity and light I get in each shot is amazing. I'm still trying to figure it out and don't know if I'll ever be able to use it well in manual, but I'm learning. Slowly.

Anticipating // A dear friends baby shower tomorrow. She's having her first baby (a little boy named Max) in February and I got the cutest wrapping paper for his gift! I mean, the gifts are nice too, but this wrapping paper and matching gift bag seriously make me swoon with cuteness! Not sure what it is about good quality paper goods, but I like them.

Missing // College. I have been having some serious nostalgia concerning college. Maybe it's because at this time of year I'd be on Christmas break, spending my time in coffee shops with my girlfriends and laughing so hard our sides hurt and there are tears streaming down our faces. Or maybe I just miss my friends back east. Either way, I now know why they say your college years are the best time of your life. It truly was a sickly sweet time, and I miss it dearly.

Reading // I'm still reading Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. I'm nearing the end so I've been reading it more slowly. His books are packed with so many valuable life lessons. I hate for the experience to end.

Yes! I was feeling nostalgic about college too! Just posted the longest post everrrrrrrrr about college days and how magical they were. It's just not the same when you graduate.

And yes, hot chocolate + coffee = yummation!
