The Christmas Trees are up!

It’s the day after (well, the next day after) Thanksgiving and the Christmas trees are up!
Our cute lil fake tree, complete with fake snow.
Our real (Oregon Douglas Fir) Christmas tree.
Right now we’re lacking ornaments.
It’s our first tree together, so we don’t have any yet.
It’s okay though, we’re pretty happy with it.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving
and if you don’t have your Christmas tree up, you better do it soon!

My Holiday Wishlist (part one)

I know it’s not even Thanksgiving, but I don’t care! I love the holidays, Christmas especially. I love that the holidays are full of love and happiness and family time. Speaking of happiness, I compiled a list of items that would make me really happy. Okay, this is mostly for fun. I just thought it would be fun to share some things with you that are on my wishlist this holiday season.

Okay, this is only part one. I have a part two coming soon.
1. Zoya’s “Feel” Collection. Zoya’s newest collection is my favorite so far. A collection of wintery creams for a soft romantic look this holiday season. My favorites are Kendal, Megan and Avery.
2. J. Crew Stackable Bracelets. I think these mix and match bracelets would be perfect to pair with any outfit this winter.
3. 35mm Lens. I already want a new camera lens. I might need to do some more research, but I’m really liking this one so far.
4. Kate Spade City Lights cosmetic bag. This little pouch is so cute, I love the fun, bright bokeh lights of the city.
5. Fujiflim Instax Mini. I’ve been wanting to add this to my camera collection for a while. I love the instant mini prints.
6. Kate Spade Silver Ring Cocktail Gloves. These gloves are just too cute for words.
7. Hunter Wellies. Who doesn’t want a pair of these?! I live in Portland, so I’m surprised that I don’t already own a pair.

Fall at my house

The trees around my house are absolutely gorgeous. The past few days the colors have gotten so bright and rich that I couldn’t help but run outside to snap a few pictures to share. These are all in my front and back yard // I didn’t have to take any more than a few steps to capture all these images. I did however have to be quick because just a few seconds later we got a massive downpour of rain. Such is life in Portland.

 

moving in…

I realized that I hadn’t shared the first pics of our new house. While we’re still unpacking, organizing and decorating, I don’t have current pics of what it looks like right now – I do however have some pics of us getting our keys and sharing a bottle of champagne with our sweet realtor. Cheesy I know, but these pics make me really happy – they’re going to be photographic memories of the start of a really exciting journey into my future with Luke.
