November Month in Photos

It's officially holiday season on Lavender Elizabeth! In my opinion, this is the best time of the year. Between the festive spirit, beautiful lights, and snow - you can't go wrong. My favorite part, though, is the gift giving. I absolutely love to give gifts, so throughout the month of December, I'll be sharing gift guides for all the people in your lives. First, though, it's time to recap November. I started my holiday season a little early this year, with decorations, light shows, and all the Christmas mugs.
 
Catching up on Lavender Elizabeth's November

My Favorite November Moments

Enjoying our first girls potluck.
Our first potluck was Italian themed and oh-so-good. It was such a nice evening having the girls over for dinner. We each brought something, so we had a feast filled with caprese, garlic bread, Caesar salad, pizza, and wine. I was on dessert duty, so made champagne cupcakes. Yum! 
 
Kicking off the holidays with my girlfriends.
Five of us went on a holiday adventure. We booked tickets for the Let it Shine Light Show and then waited in the car for almost two hours to drive through the lights. Thankfully, we picked up Starbucks on the way, so enjoyed our warm drinks while chatting. It was a fun (and funny) way to kick off our Christmas season.

Decorating my apartment for Christmas.
I promised myself I'd wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate, but I gave in. This is my first year spending Christmas in this apartment, so I couldn't wait to decorate. Now my apartment is my own little winter wonderland. Check out November 22 to see my tree!
