Merry Christmas!

mini Chicago Manual of Style ornament, in progress

Merry Christmas! For the next two weeks, my husband and I will be alternating between celebration and hibernation modes, and I’m looking forward to the time off together to enjoy the holiday season. Between baking cookies, watching movies, and wrapping up the last of the presents, I’ll be doing some behind-the-scenes updates on this website and catching up on a slew of business articles I bookmarked for later (the future is now!).

The house is decked out in mistletoe and twinkle lights, and I’ve even added some holiday cheer to my editing studio with some candles, tinsel, and a tiny Christmas tree. I came across this mini style book ornament on the Chicago Manual of Style website earlier in the week and had to add it to my little tree. I love that it has a few actual pages tucked inside. I’m hoping for the real thing under my tree later this week—fingers crossed! 🙂 (Here and here are a few other things I’ve had my eye on this season. What’s on your wishlist?)

  1. Thanks! Come to think of it, I also have a mini Christmas Carol on my tree–and a mini Jane Eyre. 🙂 I’m learning that Chicago’s more common in publishing than MLA, so I am in the process of retraining my brain. MLA will always be my first love, though. 🙂


  2. nice pictures–you may be one of the few people in the world who have a mini Chicago manual on your tree! I have a mini Bible and a mini Christmas Carol. And don’t you feel a bit disloyal to your field to privilege Chicago over MLA? 😛
