This is the time of year for a myriad of emotions, busy-ness, and stress. It's also when there seems to be a lot of good cheer in the (cold) air. Even though not all of us celebrate the same holidays, I think most of us share in the general "good will towards others" thing as the holiday season engulfs us.
It was an especially festive week for me, in more ways than one. Care to hear about it?
Monday had mucho chilly temps in the wee dark hours, but warm temps were in the afternoon's forecast...so I hustled out the door and did a quick walk with Max, and saved my streak run for later. As the saying goes, "good things come to those who wait," and Momma N was most kind. Temps in the high 40's are so comfy this time of year! Even with some slight wind, the two miles in the afternoon sun had me feeling all giddy (and my Christmas tree-adorned socks were quite sparkly as well).

In other news:
I have had a lot of fun with my recent #FridayFashionFlair posts (on Instagram). I love color, and I especially love wearing red this time of year. We had our office party on Friday, so I dug out an old favorite, my red velvet "peasant" top...and wouldn't you know? My Santa hat was almost a perfect match! Velvet is tricky in that it seems to go in and out of main stream fashion, but always is on point during the holiday season. It's easy to dress it up or dress it down, depending on where you're headed. Do you own any velvet? You're welcome to play along....post a pic of a favorite outfit on Friday, hashtag it #FridayFashionFlair, and drop me a tag (@runningonthefly).
