We’re in the midst of a snow storm on the east coast. School finished before noon. Lunch is so late it’s turning into dinner. Christmas is one week away and I still have more presents to make (homemade vanilla extract, chocolates, cookies, and chai tea mix). So it goes.

snowy days

Breathe in, breathe out. Watch snowflakes shoot like tiny wet stars from the sky. Bake a loaf of bread. Hug the kiddos extra close and send a cheery note out to family and friends.

Holiday blog giveaway

Although I did squeeze in a little shopping for you last night before the storm came. I hope you like what I put together for today’s giveaway. The theme is mobile camera projects since most of us document our days on VSCO, Instagram, Flickr and the lot, I think you might like this set.
