Holiday Traditions

Nov 24, 2016

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Trees like people grow strong with love. These photos were taken in 2010. 2013, and today. Every Thanksgiving Kiel and I go to New Hampshire to enjoy dinner with our family in the White Mountains. It’s the best way to start the holiday season. We always love when it snows as it has become a tradition of ours to decorate this outdoor Christmas tree that has grown quite large over the years. Next Thanksgiving we are really going to have to get a bigger ladder!

Almost as soon as the last plate of pie is cleared from the table, Thanksgiving ends and Christmas begins.

Reading is My Happy Place

Nov 6, 2016

My ideal Sunday afternoon is spent feeling cozy at home with a good book and a pet or two at my side. This does not happen as often as I would like but I cannot think of a better way to relax before the start of a new week. 

I recently read and enjoyed Leigh Himes debut novel The One That Got AwayIt’s an unconventional love story about missed opportunities and second chances. The heroine of the story, Abbey Lahey, gets a chance to live out the life that could have been and gains a fresh perspective on the only life she has ever known.
