Good morning! How is Christmas only one week away? I know I say this every year, but the holiday season always goes by way too fast — there just seems to never be enough time to do all the fudge making, holiday decorating, Christmas festivities that I want to do. This next week, though, is going to be the best because we’re going to do ALL the Christmas things, including a holiday pop-up shop for Citizen Home Decor at our favorite Peixoto Coffee this Friday, December 19th, from 5-9pm! If you’re local, we would love to have you stop by — we’ll be selling state ornaments, plaques, coasters, and our newest editions, the Mr. & Mrs. and Baby’s First Christmas Ornaments!
Every year, our little town square hangs the most amazing Christmas lights all up and down our main street. They start putting them up in October and then turn them on sometime in November — making for a very festive and cozy drive as we head to Peixoto Coffee and The Original Chop Shop Co. for our weekly brunch and evening coffee dates. Peixoto has the most amazing winter menu right now, and while I’m not much of a sweet coffee kind of gal, their mint mocha is amazing! They top it with a fresh mint leaf and a locally made marshmallow, which slowly melts into the hot drink — MMM, the best!
I recently treated myself to this personalized bar necklace from Barberry & Lace, an Arizona native who, sadly, just moved to Vegas! I’ve been wanting one with our wedding date on it for what seems like forever, so when she was having a recent sale I finally placed my order. It’s just as lovely as I knew it would be, and I would highly recommend any of Leigh’s pieces — they’re truly handmade with lots of love, passion and creativity!

And there she is — our town’s giant tumbleweed tree in all it’s glory! I laugh at this thing every year, because really, it’s kind of ridiculous! There’s just something about it that I can’t help but love, though. Maybe it’s the history, as they’ve been putting it up for over 50 years, or it’s the thought that only in Arizona would someone do something like this! We’ll just call it desert charm — here’s to a very, merry desert Christmas! Hope you all have a great day!
