With the seasonal citrus and cranberries filling the produce section of the grocery store, I picked up a couple extra oranges and cranberries on my last trip to make some yummy bread for friends and neighbors before the hustle and bustle of the season begins. While this was baking, the house was filled with the wonderful smell of warm orange, which was welcomed on a chilly afternoon. I love giving these mini loaves as gifts, because it is the perfect amount for a few slices with hot cocoa in the morning, or a toasted piece with butter for an afternoon snack. Tis the season to be jolly, and this yummy and festive bread is sure to bring a smile to any face!

Welcome to baby boy's nautical inspired room! We decided to keep everything fairly neutral, and since I am too lazy to paint (seriously) we kept everything clean and white with pops of blue. I love the idea of a simple nautical theme, and this is now one of my favorite rooms in the house. Each night, the little tree glows in the dark, perfect for welcoming our December baby, along with the R2D2 stocking (wonder who picked that out?). The shelves displaying countless books from my collection is another favorite part of this room, as it acts as both art and functionality. Aunt Whitney sewed the darling quilt hanging on the crib, and it's the perfect finishing touch to this sea inspired room! The crib spring hanging on the wall is the actual spring from my baby crib, and holds fun prints & photos. I can't wait for endless nights in that rocking chair, which was lovingly handed down by some sweet friends (who rocked and raised two darling babies in it!). Okay, baby! We are ready for you!
