sunday dreaming / 32.

dreaming of…

a wintery stroll with my love.

Adam and I are packing up the car on Friday and driving the 20 hours back home to Colorado for Christmas. I’m crossing my fingers for good road weather (I hate driving in the snow!) and so looking forward to some chill days with my family. I’m also hoping to sneak in a snow stroll with Adam. There is nothing better than trekking through the snow in the evening when everything is super quite and serene and the snowflakes are brushing against your face. I can’t wait for Christmas!

it’s cold outside.

I’m super excited to be delivering some of my scout. goodies to a baby shower in Snohomish today (Laura I’m soooo excited to celebrate with ya!) but let me tell ya….it’s chilly this morning!

As Adam and I load up, I find myself daydreaming of a warmer pair of mittens. I’ve always preferred mittens over gloves. I rather like the feeling of knowing all my fingers are keeping each other warm. I especially love the mittens that have a little flair…maybe a fun zipper or cute button? These leather isla mittens by Kurt Geiger are DEFINITELY going on my wishlist! What accessories do you prefer to keep warm with in these winter months?

sunday dreaming / 31.

dreaming of…

the real deal.

When I was little we had a fake tree. No bristles, no hastle, no yearly expense is kinda how I felt my parents thought about a real one. But I’ve always felt a little bit of sadness every time we pulled our tree from the box and manipulated its metal arms. And although I loved our Christmas celebrations, and hold them near & dear to my heart, they always left me wanting that fresh pine smell of a real tree.

When Adam and I moved to Seattle 4 years ago I was completely ecstatic when I realized that most people in the PNW buy their Christmas trees fresh. I remember getting teary eyed when we bought our 1st real tree together and had similar emotions when we bought our tree today. There’s nothing better than spending an afternoon inching your way amoungst the branches and picking the perfect one out with your love.

not so ugly.


Ooooooh I’m getting so excited! Not only is the season beginning to ooze of fresh Christmas trees, sparkly lights, and yummy smelling hot cocoa, but one of my most favorite things is just around the corner! Ugly sweaters!

Every year Adam and I search for the ugliest knitted wonders we can find. I not only love the hunt but I can’t resist the ones complete with tassels, buttons or working lights….so much fun!

In the midst of searching for this years uglies, I stumbled across these NOT so uglies. I’d love for the polar bear one to land in my closet.

Do you find yourself wearing ugly sweaters this time of year?

a winter bride.

As I stood in the longer than life post office line this week (ick!), one thing was glaringly apparent: the holidays are here! Oh yeah, that holiday buzz was definitely in the air as I felt the immense pressure to already stock up on those hot commodity holiday stamps…would 5 books cut it this year?!? Enter me biting my nails and shaking a bit knowing I’m already behind on the holiday card prep. Oh the stress!

AND with the holidays comes the thought of that winter bride. The one that isn’t afraid to go coatless for those magnificent ethereal snow shots…below freezing temperatures and all. Winter weddings are some of my favs for sure. There is such a beauty and nearly eery quiet to those winter months that just gives a unique romance and warmth to the day…ahhhh.

I about fell over when I saw these “winter bride” wears from BHLDN. There’s nothing better than a little sparkle and snow to compliment the holiday season and to bring the wintery wedding festivities to a whole n-other level.
