MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: DECEMBER 18–24, 2017!

The last week at work before the holiday break. A gift-exchange with my Dungeons and Dragons friends ends with digging for gems. I fly out to North Carolina to bring gifts and visit Zach’s sister’s beautiful farm and all her little sheep before heading back home to celebrate Christmas with my family.

Enjoy!

Last week in the office before everybody is off for break. So many coworkers are already off on their vacations, so extra casual for me.

Found these cute ornaments in the Getty shop.

Got a few gifts for Zach’s family from the Getty shop. There’s so many great books there, for real.

D&D crew got together for a last round and white elephant gift exchange but it devolved and we just hung out.

Everybody’s reaction as Glenn pooped while sitting on the Ass Reaper.

Early morning plane ride and we landed in Atlanta.

Untitled
Untitled
We thought we had a massive delay in Atlanta so Zach’s sister came to pick us up (over a 3 hour drive from Asheville) and our flight ended up only being a few hours delayed…woops.

Untitled
Untitled
Finally made it to North Carolina, Sandy Mush to be exact. A little township outside of Asheville filled with beautiful forested hills and farm land.

We’re hanging with Jessica (staying nextdoor) for a few days before Zach’s other family arrive.

This house was built by hand in 1995 by the family who used to live here. I love the little swirls in the ceilings.

The youngest cow can get feisty so Jessica recommended carrying a stick with a bag on the end to shake if they charge. We never found out if it worked, thankfully.

  1. Obsessed with this whole post. North Carolina looks so different from LA! And that whole setting looks like it came out straight from a Bon Iver album, love it so much 🙂 Also, there’s a place called New Belgium??? Awesome!

    Your tiny tree is the cutest! And isn’t gift wrapping so therapeutic???
