I’ve loved getting to meet you through your comments, here and on Instagram! I’ve always enjoyed those “get to know you” posts that a few bloggers do, and I wanted to create my own version here, a sort of virtual “coffee talk.” I’d love if you could share your answers in the comments–and hopefully, we’ll make this a monthly installment! This one is all about comfort–can you tell I’m getting ready to hunker down as the weather turns colder?
What’s your favorite cold-weather clothing item?
Right now it has to be cashmere everything–from turtlenecks to cashmere socks (a luxurious Christmas gift from my mother-in-law) to scarves!
What’s your favorite holiday movie?
I honestly can’t decide between our three “family tradition” movies–The Bishop’s Wife, Miracle on 34th Street, and White Christmas–my two bonus inclusions are Christmas in Connecticut and, of course, my all-time favorite, Metropolitan.
What is your favorite “comfort read”?
The Guynd by Belinda Rathbone is my favorite comfort read–my aunt handed me her copy during a difficult time of my life (my mother was in the hospital and was just given the Last Rites–she got better, thankfully, but we lost her about a year after that.) It’s an amazing book to get lost in, and I can pick it up again and again without getting bored.
When do you decorate for the holidays?
I don’t begin decorating until after the Macy’s Day Parade and the annual viewing of Miracle on 34th Street–though I will admit that I begin playing Christmas songs after Halloween!
What’s your favorite winter cocktail?
A hot toddy, always–made with ginger tea, some local honey (we love Beehaven Honey, which is made in our town!), a squeeze of lemon, and Irish whiskey.
Let me know your answers–I’d love to hear from you!
