 And in traditional Tosone family fashion (no pun intended), as soon as the plates are cleaned and the turkey has been carved and the tablecloth gets thrown in the washing machine, we rummaged around in the basement and pulled out the tree and the lights and the extensive collection of ornaments that have been accumulating since before I was born. My family loves Christmas. We deck the halls, the mantle and the shrubs outside the day after Thanksgiving and most of it stays up through January (and occasionally February!). Suddenly, all of these things are approaching: finals, the holidays, next semester. But the cool and scary thing is we only know that they're coming. We'll never be sure what they are going to bring.

hot air balloons

First of all, I wanted to give a shout out to all of my friends from freshman year of high school who told me I would stop dressing up for school by junior year. Hate to break it to you, but you were so wrong. It is that crazy time on campus right now where everyone is rushing to register for classes and we're all in "get me the hell out of here" mode. Thanksgiving break is currently the light at the end of a long tunnel comprised of essays, exams and existential moments. In other news, I'm wearing my velvet boots again. Sorry, not sorry.

Shout out to Erin for taking pictures and Allie for... well... being there

I have a crush. A color crush. It's on the color of my shorts and boots. Last year it was called burgundy, this season it's oxblood. In the last few weeks, there has been nothing but cold, biting air. Today was a breath of fresh air. So, I took complete advantage of this gorgeous day and sat in some leaves. I got these boots about a week ago and haven't taken them off since (except for once when Mira borrowed them!) They're comfy and they're velvet and they're burgundy. Oxblood. Whichever.
