winter brews.

in honor of today being national lager day + with christmas only 15 short days away, I felt it was only appropriate to share my favorite wintertime brews.

these six seasonal craft beers are not only scrumptious, but their labels will play into your holiday decorations. bring to your next holiday party. or enjoy at home, in front of the fire.

[or while watching ABC Family, like I did last night. I had to have something that made me feel like an adult, while I was watching pretty little liars. #GuiltyPleasure].

I choose books by their covers and craft beers by their labels.

happy wednesday.

welcome santa. & all your cheer.

the holiday season is without a doubt upon us.

we are after all, three days into the month of december.

there’s nothing like twinkly lights + an overdose of red & green to get you in the spirit.

[J]’s mom is a christmas decorating master. & his dad is a pro at exterior illumination.

let me give you a small glimpse of the beauty around here ..

[J] & I had our first “us” christmas last year, in new york. making this is our second christmas living together. traditions are important to me. so I’m brainstorming! [if you have any ideas, let me have ‘em!]
