{outfit} Christmas Dreaming

One week until Christmas Eve!!!!!!!! Sorry, had to get that off my chest, ha ha. At this time of year I always find myself wanting to wear more red and green (but those are rare occurrences in my wardrobe consisting of mostly purple, burgundy and jeans, ha ha.  I have been adding some more color over the past few months, though.

Christmas really is a wonderful time of year, but I must make one quick mention of the horrible Newtown, CT school shooting.  It is amazing to think that something like this happened 20 minutes from where I live. I am thankful that I didn't know anyone involved, but my heart breaks for those people who lost friends and loved ones last Friday.

I don't want to end on a sad note, so I'll finish by saying I hope everyone enjoys this time with their families during the Holiday's.  It really is the best time of year, and a time where we should show our love to our families more than ever.

  3. I can't even bare to think of how devastated those families must be right now, it is just too sad.

    But I'm very glad our photo marathon happened, since I didn't get a chance to take photos on saturday, and yesterday it rained so I didn't then either. So yay for actually having posts this week :)
