Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Around These (Short) Parts

ashortblonde - Christmas Tree Lot Hey. I feel like it's been a hot minute since I've sat down to write. I find it hard to consistently blog in December, so I allowed myself the grace to just not. ;-) Instead, I've been reading, working on projects, listening to the second season of Serial, eating far too many cookies, buying Christmas presents and taking an obscene amount of trips to the post office. Oh, and working. I'm looking forward to January when retail holiday season is over and things quiet down.

Have you had a lot of holiday parties to attend? We had a few gatherings and a wedding last week. I do love a good winter wedding, though I'd never risk having one in Chicago where people could potentially get snowed-in! We will not have snow for Christmas in Nashville this year. It will be nearly 70 degrees on Christmas! Jordan, my parents and I are having Christmas dinner at our friend's house but maybe we should scratch our original idea and grill out! What are you Christmas meal plans? Jordan and I had Christmas alone last year so we went simple with a big brunch/breakfast. It was rather delicious.

On Sunday, Jordan went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens with friends. Sadly, I had to work. Did you see it yet (#nospoilers)? I think it would be funny if instead of announcing J.J. Abrams as "The director of Star Trek and Super 8" he was announced as "The show creator of Felicity and Alias." Speaking of cheesy early aught's television shows, I started re-watching Roswell (a total guilty pleasure!). It's one of those so-bad-it's-good shows. One of the stars of Roswell, Sheri Appleby, had a guest spot on HBO's Girls a few seasons ago and I thought it was really good.

I hope you all have a very merry and bright few days before Christmas!
