There's No Place Like Home

Click your heels 3 times!

I miss my family and friends back home in the US soooo much right now, but I feel so lucky and blessed to be with my own little family!  Jorden and Aveline and I have never spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day together... this will be the first time EVER!  Home is where your heart is and my heart belongs to the two of them!
I am so happy for Christmas to finally be here that I have sort of forgotten what I asked "santa" for... I think some clothes... some books... nothing major.  I am so happy that we will spend Christmas together and with good company as well!
I am going to be cooking a feast!  Corned Beef (my style! so yum!), roasti potatoes, wilted spinach, stuffing and cranberry sauce.  Cheesecake and pie.  Gluhwein and Egg Nog.  I feel blessed to have great friends who feel like family that I am able to celebrate with.  I wish there was more I could do for everyone who means so much to us.
THE SHOES... oh the shoes...

These are my NYE shoes... but they are so much more than that!  Definitely a splurge... and a sexy one at that.  I feel like Dorothy in Candyland with Willy Wonka for a date!  These are probably the tallest shoes I have ever owned, but luckily my husband is still taller than me when I am wearing them.  Stay-tuned for NYE glitz and glam starring these babies!!!
here's what i really wore... it was snow and slush outside

I gotta figure out how to get good indoor pictures with the crappy winter weather and lighting... I think a lot of bloggers out there are having similar issues... I have an amazing camera so I think I'll figure something out.

I wish all of you the Happiest of Holidays and the Merriest Christmas EVER!!!  Love you all!  Eat, drink, open presents and thank God, Jesus, whomever you may, for all the blessings in your lives!

What I wore:  
Vintage top, thrifted.  Levis mid-rise skinny jeans.  Dooney & Bourke bag.  Boots bought downtown.  Glitter heels bought on ebay!

  1. Aww I'm so happy you get to be with both of your loves on Christmas. This is the first year MY Jordan and I get to spend New Years together as well. Yaay! Oh those shoes are so beautiful. I love them! Sparkly things make me giddy. I can't wait to see how you rock them on NYE. Glam!

    p.s.- I've learned a lot hanging around Jordan's dad during model photoshoots and the key is definitely lighting. Get yourself a light and/or reflector and in the future you can even shoot outside with it -when it's not wet of course, and you'll prob need an extension cord too. Also, find the place and time of day where your house gets the most light and take advantage of those natural light moments, even if it's just for a few minutes.
    (i hope my non-expert advice helps:) )
