Tuesday's Tunes (Count down to Christmas)

I don't know about you,..but I am NOT ready for Christmas. We only just put up our Christmas tree  and decorated it yesterday. It's just been a bit crazy this month...who am I kidding,..it's been a crazy year! My husband Tom and I were chatting last night while stringing the lights on the Christmas tree about all that this year brought to our doorstep, the stress, the blessings, the lesson to trust the Lord with everything. We are both looking forward to 2011. 

I really needed to hear this song today. Amy always know what to say and how to say it. I woke up with an overwhelming feeling that I wont be able to get all that I want accomplished done before Christmas. This song spoke to my heart,...we all need to just take some time for a bit of Silence. Jesus is the reason for the Christmas season. I pray that today and the rest of the week that I will not loose focus of that. If I get my list done before Saturday,...wahooo! If I miss the mark, oh well. This year, I am taking time to enjoy the Christmas holiday without stressing myself out. (Let's just hope I can keep this promise). 

This isn't the official video for this song, (I couldn't find one) but you can at least listen to the lyrics.

Winter Wonderland (Inspiration)

The winter storm has officially passed and the sun is now out. What a beautiful winter scene outside of my window. Snow makes the world so clean and beautiful.

Makes me want to bundle up (wearing these) and play in the snow.....

Build a snowman!

Make a few snow angels.

Then come indoors and warm my toes in front of the fireplace....

 and drink a large cup of Hot Cocoa with loads of marshmallows.

That's what I want to do today. What about you?

Tuesday's Tunes (Count down to Christmas)

It's been a few days since I have updated my blog. We have been super busy around here. Between sickness, work, and all the Christmas festivities, it seems as if December is flying by. I am taking time this week to enjoy the season. Time to take a deep breath, drink some hot cocoa and listen to some music. Hoping to get that last Christmas shopping done, the tree decorated (yes I am slacking here) and gifts wrapped.

This song is one that I LOVE. It reminds me of the time I spent Christmas in the UK. The shops were filled with people, the smell of Christmas pine and this song was one of many that I enjoyed while shopping. I swear I heard it 20 times in one weekend. Tom makes fun of me because it's "such a cheesy song". But there is just something about it that I can never get sick of. Although I do admit, it is a cheesy music video. (I was a bit disappointed with it, if I were to be honest)

So to all my fellow cheesy music fans!! Enjoy!

Tuesday's Tunes (Count down to Christmas)

If you know me, than you know how much I love Coldplay! So you can only guess how giddy I was when I found out a few months ago that they were coming out with a Christmas single. (I wish they would come out with a whole album, but I shouldn't be greedy.) The day it was released I was more than impressed! What a wonderful early Christmas gift! :)

All I want for Christmas is a (Kelly Moore Bag)

I have embarked on a new adventure these past few years! Ever since I purchased my beautiful Cannon camera, I have had this desire to take photos. There is something that was within me that I never knew existed until I started my relationship with my camera. Taking a trip to the UK I discovered once I got home, how much I really did love to take photos! (Over 4,000 photos saved on Tom's laptop we brought with us). Also, this year becoming a new mom, I have loved capturing those moments that are fleeting and will never be again. Photo's can bring you back to a place in time, and hold such dear memories.

This year, I have discovered a lovely camera bag designer name Kelly Moore She designs amazing bags that not only look stylish, but are very practical. I love how the bags hold multiple lenses and flashes, and will gap open so you have free access to them as you shoot. I am hoping to purchase one of these beauties someday. Santa,..if you are listening,......I like the Hobo in mustard or red. I have been a super good girl! ;)
