We've been hardcore about  Christmas activities this year, starting way back before Thanksgiving when we took a trip on the Polar Express in Essex, CT. Yes, this year we've covered a lot of holiday territory; and in case you're in need of a little last minute cheer, I've compiled a list of five {semi-local} things you still have time to do before the big day arrives:

To Do: Art Class with Green Moon

Over the weekend I conducted another very helpful poll on my Insta Stories. It's one of my favorite new features on Instagram, and lets me know a little more about what ya'll are looking for, and how I can make this little blog of mine better.

I asked what you wanted to see more of here at LL; and the overwhelming majority of you answered that you wanted to see more of my favorite things to do here in CT. Just in time for our local giveaway.
