Warm in December

Well, it's the last day of November.  Holy. Cow. And tomorrow is the last month of 2012.  I seriously can't even believe it. Come tomorrow morning and I will no longer get dirty looks for playing Christmas music too early.  I just have one thing to say about that:

Sibling Revelry

With siblings as close as we are, we just can't get enough of each other.  It was therefore decided that once a month, the boys would come to Kaylie's and my house in Provo and we'd have a fantastical dinner.  This last month, Chandler made his famous Red Pepper Chicken.  In a word: delicious.  Memories were made, tears were shed, and inches were added to the waistline.  A perfect success, if you ask me.  I just thank my lucky stars for these friends that I'm lucky enough to call family....Alfie and all.  Sure, we have our moments, but it's moments like these that I don't want to forget.
Cuz in the end, we're all we've got. 

Sibling to my ears.


I'm just a little bit in touch with this right now...

Glamour Shots

When your friend, Emily Hale, turns a quarter-of-a-century and wants to do glamour shots for her birthday, you channel Gloria Estefan, throw on your lace spandex, and you get to work!  Were we up the majority of the night? yep.  Did I eat an entire box of zebra cakes? Maybe.  Do I wonder every day why every single one of these girls in these photographs are not famous? Every dang day. Here are a few gems. 

And last but not least...Emily.
Emily, you're my friend...and I'm not sad about it. Welcome to year 25.

Amy, Kim and Kanye

Halloween: a time for excessive junk food eating, Hocus Pocus viewings, and dressing up as pop culture icons.  It's a dream, to be sure.  This last one was even better than the year before.  Loads of friends, lots of yummy treats, and a good two hours of ear bleeding karaoke.  It doesn't get much better than that.  Behold a few pics to honor this blessed month.

Window into Fall

Did I mention that this is my favorite time of year?...Oh yeah, it's my favorite.

Summer afternoon...

Falling Freely

As it is last day in August, I felt it only appropriate to share my emotions regarding the matter: sad with a twist of Fall nostalgia stirrings. I can't believe how fast this year is wizzing by.  Just when I think I have a good 8 months to finish all my New Year's resolutions, the colored leaves remind me that time is as fleeting as a good grip on a solid branch.  But I'm not sorry. This has been a great year of successes after all. I managed to jump out of a plane at 14,000 ft with my beautiful bestie, Elizabeth. Nothing short of magical.  But this endless Summer is ending and my sweet sister is no longer on the other side of my paper thin bedroom wall.  
At least I can try and tell myself that endings are just beginnings in disguise. 
Perhaps these last four months will prove to be 2012's best.  
Perhaps they will be mine, too. 
Here are some pics of my sky falling adventure courtesy of my Henry.

Oh sweet blissful heavens...

Evergreen. Ever Loved.

Ever since my family and I moved from Spokane, Washington to Highland, Utah, I've had this little ache in my chest.  Nothing serious.  Just this little ache for the place that raised me -- my happy place.  I hadn't been back in the two years that I've been away.  That all changed when my mum, sister and I took a much overdue road trip to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. The three of us requested time off from our busy lives months in advance to dedicate a week-and-a-half to nothing but rubber on the road. 2,700 miles, 46 car hours, 5 cities, 4 Jack in the Box stops, and 1 sunburn later, you've got yourself a really good time. I don't know, there's something about breathing the same air in a 4x4 ft cabin space that really brings you together. The ties that bind...and gag. 

Love you Spokane, Seattle, Portland, Lincoln City, and Priest Lake.
