Glimpses Of Our Holiday Out Here...

(Yes, I tend to hug new cookware and beautiful yellow kettles.)

Hope your holiday was as lovely and snowy and bright as ours!

Now for a big grown-up birthday bash (mine).
And an 11th birthday to celebrate (Sully's).
Holiday decor to pack away to make room for a fresh new year.

And more time at home to hug family and friends well into January.

So very lucky out here indeed.

this moment

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. 

-Amanda Soule (SouleMama)

Merry Weekend to you!

Snow After Sun

From the phone...

My two favorite seasonal moments on this island-

1. When each and every leaf and blade of grass is bloomed and green.

2. When each and every skinny branch and dry reed is covered in a strip of white.

We got my second fave this week. 
Its a close second.

Less than a week til Christmas!

My Triple Twelve.

Today was the day...

That I realized we have the prettiest tree on earth.

We functioned with a broken refridge by sticking our food in the snow out back 
and our orange juice on the front porch.

We had a morning of dramatic sun.

And an evening of dramatic roof-ripping wind.

it was the day I promised not to embarrass Colyer during his school play
 by giggling and laughing too much like always. Instead... 
I did one better and cried like a baby right there in the front row.

Sorry Colyer.

Happy 12/12/12!
