all of my dreams came true when I met [J]. and then again, when I met steph + dado, the two lovely people that make up 5th photography. they helped [J] + I turn our crazy engagement shoot vision into a reality. but not only that, they made it perfect. what I saw in my mind was nowhere near how beautiful it actually was when it came together. [minus the swarms of mosquitoes ..those weren’t in my dreams].
now go see the rest of them .. 5th photography // chelsea + jeff.
the first week of december is crazily behind us. which means, less than 20 days until christmas. ahhh! besides the below zero temperatures outside, I love this month. so much
holiday cheer happiness. the only downside, shopping days are numbered. I need to get it done.
so far so great on the #LLinaBCHolidayChallenge. the house is decorated, the tree is up, and tonight we’re watching “elf”.
“is this too much?”.
we received this ornament at our engagement party. and love it so much, because this was quite literally the scene after [J] proposed. very happy campers. what a thoughtful gift.
on tuesday our #LLinaBCHolidayChallege was to make a big pot of chili. which [J] made himself and even took a picture for me
to put on the blog. proud blogger fiance :)
I won this pretty pair of chloe + isabel pearl & crystal earrings. I love days when the mailbox holds goodies like this.
I fell for this rustic star stocking holder from crate & barrel. but [J] said “don’t buy it!!! I’ll make it”. and this is his finished product. I love it! I think it’s so much better. it’s us. and very rustic.
don’t forget it’s not too late to jump on board with the holiday challenge. just snap a photo & share with #LLinaBCHolidayChallenge on twitter or instagram.
have the best weekend.
[J]’s parents have the greatest back deck. you literally feel like you’re in a grown-up tree house. [J]’s step mom just so happens to be an amazing cook. so when she’s cooking dinner & we’re eating outside… you know you’re in for a treat.
the other night it was… salmon on the grill, accompanied by fresh veggies, wild rice, & of course wine.
beautiful night, great company, & a “just because” dinner in the tree house.
on that note ..I’m starving. maybe I’ll have coffee & breakfast in the tree house today!
enjoy your tuesday.
