’tis the season

last weekend was a bit of a nothing weekend, in that there were no plans, specifically, but a loose string of indulgences.  breakfast ‘out,’ christmas tree selection, cleaning up and hunkering down.IMG_1183

this one came by for a visit, isn’t she sweet?  we snuggled under my big, brown scarf while we watched the guys wedge, maul and look at the wood pile in the garage before determining yes, at one point it had been dry, but now it is on its way to being petrified.  no wonder we were getting so sore trying to split it!

good productivity in the dark, though.  i’m working on a wedding photography website that is scheduled to be live for the new year.  i’m so, so excited about the opportunities it might open up in 2014!
