I’m sharing what I’m CURRENTLY up to following prompts given by Anne at In Residence. September’s prompts are: beginning, ending, loving, picking, and posting. Let’s do this!!! I am CURRENTLY… beginning: my Christmas shopping. I loving buying gifts for family and friends, and I love having it wrapped up (no pun intended!) by Thanksgiving so I can rest, enjoy the whole season, and focus on Advent.
