my best girls

My friend Kim just sent me this picture from last night. My sisters threw me the most amazing bachelorette dinner party with all my Burlington girls. I was on a cloud the entire night.

We all dressed up to the nines. Emi brought out her fine china and crystal. Emi & Hannah prepared a 5-course gourmet meal and each course was paired with a wine from a different country/girlfriend. It was very, very special. I feel so lucky. Love to all my girls. xoxo

2 weeks

This is the countdown for real. 14 days till the wedding and I'm feeling surprisingly calm. Just a few last-minute details, but for the most part everything is all set. See? Being such a planner has its perks. I'm trying to take everyone's advice and just really ENJOY this time. Colin is secretly planning our honeymoon trip. 2 weeks in Kauai! I can hardly wait. But first: the wedding, getting hitched with the man I love, seeing family and friends, music, dancing, good food, seeing all of our creative planning come to life. Then: a well-deserved vacation for the both of us. Yay!

snow, finally, snow

Well, it took a little patience, but we finally got our first big snowstorm of the season. Burlington got the most out of anywhere and they reported record snowfall at the airport—30 some odd inches. (I don't know what kind of measuring stick they were using over there; we got just around 2 feet at our house downtown.)

The entire weekend was a-snow. But there was a quiet moment around midday Sunday and I walked into town to run some errands. I couldn't believe all the snow piled high on Church Street! And there was still more to come...

Later last night, before family night dinner, the girls took a dusk snowshoe across the street at the golf course. Sapphire was tucked in snug as a bug. The snow was past our knees, but light as a feather.

It was even higher than the dogs. They got tired pretty quickly and stayed in the path the whole way back.

Yay snow!

sapphire sketch

Happy New Year! I finally had some down time this week and spent a couple days doing something I've been wanting to do for months: draw. So I did a portrait of my niece Sapphire. I think it came out pretty well considering the last time I drew or painted was years ago. (So sad!) It even kind of looks like her. Anywho, here's a scan of the Sapphie sketch. Watercolor pencils on paper.
