And the lights were set to twinkle...

After a wonderful week in Florida, I have come back to Christmas lights everywhere! I know I've said this last year, and I'll say it again. My absolute favorite thing about this season is all the twinkling lights.

After we returned from the airport, I told Mike we just had to go out and walk through the trees in downtown Wayne. We did just that!

Today is the last day of my 40% off print sale in the shop as well as free shipping over on Society6 which includes iPhone cases/skins & laptop skins!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving Holiday. Are you looking forward to Christmas? Are you ready for Christmas?! I don't know if I ever am....but at least Starbucks Gingerbread Lattes are back!!


Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Starting Friday my shop will be offering 40% off all prints November 25 - November 28.

Whether you are really into surfers this year,  vintage cameras, you're a bird nut like myself, or you're looking for that last minute Christmas sparkle to add to decorations - there is something to find and love for everyone!

My favorite thing about this sale? No lines. Oh...my god....the lines!

All orders will contain special goodies, and a discount code for your next purchase.
Happy Black Friday!

So many other talented people are offering sales, too. Check out the Female Photographers of Etsy blog for more info.


The next few days are all about organizing, list making, and digging out summer clothes. Where did I put all of my flip flops??
3 more days until Florida.  ( as I sip on a grande Gingerbread latte... )

Here are some Floridian-life inspired photographs, now available in the shop.


Apple Cider Rules!

Need a pick me up? Recently I was told (by a doctor, of all people. What does he know?!) I should lower my caffeine intake. This morning I made myself a hot cup of apple cider, with a twist of course.

Add an orange slice to organic (or homemade) apple cider, and a sprinkle of nutmeg to amp up a cup of yours. The spice adds an extra note of flavor, and it makes you feel super classy. Or takes your mind off of not having the usual coffee (like myself).

I plan to sneak in as much Autumn-loving recipes and activities in these next few weeks, because I'll be spending Thanksgiving in Florida! I'm very excited to see my mom, grandparents & spend time with the new adoptive pup, a retired greyhound named Bull! 

My mom is still recovering from her recent hospital stay (happy to say she sounds great on the phone!), which has put our whole family in a sort of tittering over the edge emotional state, so I am anxious to see her and squeeze her face. We have been sharing recipes over the phone (which helps keep your mind off things), and taking ample time to describe techniques & flavors but it really doesn't compare to being in the kitchen with this woman. She can cook her ass off. This trip will surely create long-lasting memories. 

PS - Thank you to those who twittered, messaged or emailed good vibes our way. It has not gone unnoticed :)
