OK, you know you’ve officially had your fingers surgically attached to your keyboard when you realize it’s October 23rd and you have yet to have your first pumpkin spice latte of the season.
This has been me for the bulk of October…
I have to fix this coffee drink tragedy ASAP, obvs. I’ll be sure to grab one when I’m out doing holiday shopping! Yes, I’m actually starting in October this year, and I’m going to try to do it all in-person so I don’t have to wait for stuff to be shipped (and potentially delayed). I usually ask people in my family to give me a wish list, but ya know…I don’t think that’s been working for me. I have to badger and cajole and basically beg for the list for weeks, and then it usually ends up being too late to order anything and get it on time.
So, my strategy for gift-giving this year will be this: if it’s something I’d like to get as a gift — like, the gift feels thoughtful and special, like someone really took the time to think about it — then chances are the other person will like it too.
We’ll see how it works out! My goal is to be done with all my Christmas shopping by November 10.
Yes, I know how crazy that sounds! I’m going to make it happen!

The docs are in.
Those sweaters look cozy.
What are your plans on this lovely Saturday? There’s a big storm hitting Northern California this weekend, so I’m getting my errands done early today before it arrives this evening. ⛈️
