a menagerie of musings // november

11.16.2011


>> mismatched socks. Just because I can.


>> cuddles. Last Friday was a movie night with my friends, Sydney & Sydney (i guess i just really like sydneys...). Sydney #1 made us watch Star Wars, while Sydney #2 and I cuddled with Sydney #1's dachshund, and pretended like we totally understood what was going on. ;)

>> a new design. My dear friend Carlotta ever-so-kindly offered to spruce up my little blog. What do you think? I'm kind of in love.


>> christmas lights. Apparently it's that time of year, already. Craziness.


>> afternoons with my sister. The other day, we biked uptown for a visit to the antique store and the old art gallery. This was followed by a much-anticipated sushi lunch. Our favourite. I'm so thankful for the days I get to spend with Chloe. I swear I love this girl more and more each day.


What are you loving about November? xo,

  1. the fourth photo is my favorite.
    oh abbey, you never cease to make me smile. i am quite in love with your new design, and the fact that Christmas is nearly around the corner. even if us Americans haven't had Thanksgiving yet.
    also, sometimes, out of pure impulse, my mom takes the time to match up my socks. i don't know why, because she knows that i only wear my socks mismatched. my grandma got me a few pairs of socks. there were three in a pack, and they were all different. they were mix and match and all. i love them. and you can't lose them, because their aren't two of a kind!
    *sigh* i just love you and your blog.
    great post :))
