Happy Sunday friends! Welcome back to my cozy corner of the Mitten. I’m so happy you’ve joined me again for another week of Mitten Moments. Each week, I share a few exceptional moments from my own life and from some of my friends. 

Big Al and I had a fun night at a family wedding. It’s always fun to get dressed up and celebrate with family and friends. I might add the food was delish! Santa and Mrs. Claus made an appearance, too!

Can you believe Christmas will be here in 15 days! What are you looking forward to most about Christmas this year? Mine is spending the day with my family, sharing a meal and watching our grands open gifts!

My Personal Mitten Moments

  • Do you send Christmas cards? I may be a little old fashion, but there’s something so nostalgic about sending and receiving those festive cards. Sending cards and letters seems to be a lost art. I started writing mine earlier this week. My goal is to get them finished by mid week…Christmas stamped and all!
  • I know this is so 2020, but I just started watching The Queen’s Gambit. So far, I really like it and think the acting is top-notch. Did you watch it…in 2020, or are you late to the game like me?
  • With only 21 days left in the year, I started planning my calendar for the 2024. Let me know if there is anything you would like to see!
