Happy 2009!

I hope your New Year’s was lovely. I spent mine far away from the city, the Internets and civilization. Now I’m back and it is cold! I know a lot of people are not fans of winter but I love it. I love fresh snow, seeing my breath and snuggling up with someone I love. January is a weird month…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥
