I woke up to a ridiculously icy wonderland this morning, making my morning commute far more interesting than anticipated, but we made it! 

I dropped Ella off at daycare with her snow pants & snow boots. I'm hoping that I'll get some outdoor action shots from her babysitter today! She really needs some fresh air in her system. I think she's getting just as antsy for Christmas Break as I am. By the way... we aren't allowed to call it "Christmas Break" at school, or even "Holiday Break" which I could probably get behind... it has to be referred to as "Winter Break" and I think that's just dumb. 

Moving on... I'm wearing my new Wrapped in Rubies cardigan from Kiki LaRue today & I'm in love! I paired it with fleece lined leggings & high boots - so I'm extra cozy on this blustery day. If you're looking for something festive but comfy, this is your jam... 

Here's another shot because I just love it that much... 

And to continue on with the randomness, I just have to share this link from Today. It had me crying before 8 a.m. - so incredibly touching & an amazing reminder that professional photographs really are a worthy investment. My greatest fear in life is that I will become ill, or tragically pass, and leave Eric to raise Ella on his own. But this story made me feel better, because I know he'd find a way to remember me too :) 

Well, that was a little too dark to end on... so I'll leave you with this sweet picture of Miss Ella at practice the other day instead. 


  1. Ugh My morning commute was horrible too! It took me an hour... normally it takes 15 min. I passed 5 accidents on my way in. 5!?

  2. that sweater looks super comfy! and sorry about the long commute. I'm lucky in that I'm only 10 minutes away from work with traffic.
