Merry Christmas and Happy New Year – 2013

31 Dec

Hope everyone has had a happy and safe Christmas season. Here are a few pictures from the holidays! 

This year I got my first “Ugly” Christmas sweater. It is not that ugly, but it is definitely pretty silly.

Lots of snow paired with an ice storm that left my family without power for seven days!

This year we decided that we were going to get a new prelit Christmas tree. I few of the lights didn’t work, but we kept it anyways.

We even put the our pup in a Santa outfit.. (Not a big fan)

Cute little decorations!

Set the table with my Great Grandmothers China. This set was made before 1916!

As the break comes to an end we relax and enjoy the last few day of 2013 and welcome 2014! Happy New Year!

Boyne, Ski Weekend

2 Feb

Each year the advertising industry in Detroit throws a winter weekend get away. If anyone knows Michigan there are not many places to ski. So we drive up to Boyne.

This is our second year attending. Before last year it had been maybe 20 years since the last time I hit up the slopes. Needless to say I was very intimidated.  This year we did a lot better. The chair lifts still presented a challenge, but not as many falls and tons of laughs.

Do you hit the slopes? Ski or Snowboard? Where do you go?

Sunflowers!

23 Feb

I came across these photos I took last summer and I wanted to share them with you. It made me smile and reminded me that there is life after a very snowy winter. This year in Michigan we have been slammed with snow. Not that I don’t mind it, but sometimes you just need  to be reminded that it WILL melt soon. =)

Every year I plant hundreds of sunflowers for my grandmother. My whole summer revolves around those silly flowers and how they are doing. Who ever is visiting her at the time I ask very nicely for them to please check on my flowers and give them a nice drink of water.  This past year I started the seedlings in a plastic bowl and let them germinate before I stuck them in the ground. I may have let them grow a little to long..

Oh Summer – I miss you!
