Hope your 2013 is off to a fabulous start. Here’s a little bit of what our life has looked like lately:
Bis bald, friends! Hope you have fun plans for February–especially if you’re in love 😉 Chris and I have made reservations at the gorgeous Tarrytown House, which just happens to be where we attended a wedding last year, as well.
So friends, December is rapidly passing us by, isn’t it? Seriously, where does the time go?
Anyway, with the holidays and, you know, our WEDDING!, coming up, things around the Connor/Lock household have been pretty insanely busy. I do love the city around the holidays, though, and Chris and I picked up our Christmas tree the other day and I’ve decorated the apartment. Despite the busyness, we’ve been trying really hard to stop and smell the Christmas tree (does that analogy work?) from time to time.
Here’s a little of what we’ve been up to lately in the city that never sleeps …
So that’s been December in a nutshell, basically. This Friday Chris and I will head upstate to celebrate the holidays with my mom and step-dad, then we’ll head to New Jersey to be with my dad, step-mom, sisters and brother-in-law. After that we head back into the city to get ready for our New Years Eve nuptials. That means I may not make it back here to post again before I become Mrs. Christopher Vincent Connor.
Happy holidays friends! I hope everyone has a great time filled with family, friends and delicious foods! See ya’ll in the New Year!
You guys, I mean, not for nothing, but I have become an expert packer, if I do say so myself.
So when my new InStyle arrived this past weekend, jam packed with four week’s worth of outfits made from only a handful of basics (skirt, blouse, pants … you know the deal), I decided to challenge myself to do the same with my packing.
Then, on top of that, I went a step further and decided to pan out the jewelry for each outfit, place them in plastic bags and attach them to the actual outfit with safety pins.
PLUS (not done yet!), every single outfit will go nicely with either my brown or black boots, meaning I’ll wear one and only have to pack one other pair of shoes.
I mean, you can’t make this stuff up, my friends. Check it:
Okay, so I just had to take time away from packing to post pics of my awesome, newfound expertise. Tomorrow we’re off to Berlin! So bon voyage, my friends! I’ll check back in with tons of stories and photos!
Let’s take a quick step back for a moment, shall we? I’d like to go back to about three weeks ago when I was in Italy, surprising my family with a trip and having the time of my life. While there was so much there that I saw that I loved, one surprising thing that I noticed was how ornate and beautiful all of the light fixtures were. Nary a bathroom ceiling was left unadorned by a fabulous, sparkly, glowing chandelier.
So, my friends, I did what any aspiring photographer would do–I took as many photos of them as I possibly could.
