never too late for pumpkins

it's not even december 1, and already the pace of the season threatens to override my intentions to stay on top of the details.

though the harvest holidays are officially gone, these beautiful babes deserve to be mentioned. and the pumpkins, too.  they're just too wonderful a backdrop to abandon after Thanksgiving.

hope your holiday was warm, lovely, and delicious. may your christmas season be all this and more.

the red cup

it's ridiculous. I know.

I should be too embarassed to admit that it makes me so excied. there is something about drinking my overpriced coffee from a brightly colored paper cup that gets me in the mood for santa claus, snow days, and stuffed turkey.

logical people are annoyed at how early the holidays start these days, but I'm hopelessly sentimental. it's barely november, and the carols play loudly on my stereo.

I dive head first into this shameless marketing ploy. it's nothing but exploitation but I don't care. it's a new sort of nostalgia--as processed as it gets--and I drink it right up.

merry christmas, everybody.

sunday afternoon in the park

we're taking advantage of these late summer days.
the last glimpses of warmth before the cold sets in. the opportunity to enjoy crisp air, colorful leaves, and warm sunshine, unencumbered by down coats, winter hats, mittens.

sisters have a unique way of being in together and experiencing one another.  this is the energy we hope for. these are the moments we cherish.

there's nothing better than babies and dogs.

        or dogs who love babies.
              or babies who love dogs.

 any way you cut it, it's some of the best stuff in life.
