Home for the Holidays

Merry Christmas!  This is the card I designed this year.  We took this photo on Pratt's campus on graduation day.  I loved having a love statue to walk past every day.  Not gonna lie- laid this out in my mind 3 years ago.

I love New York during Christmas.  Matt & I go on an annual date to see the tree and all the store windows.  We often have dinner overlooking the Rockefeller ice skating rink, but this year we tried a new place, Brasserie Ruhlmann just steps away from all the madness.  The charcuterie was an especially delightful treat.

The windows at anthro were adorable (they had little reindeer with legwarmers and earmuffs!), but Bergdorf's took the cake as usual.  I didn't pose with them, as the wind was whipping around too much, but I've posted some photos of them here.

Footwear around this time of year gets a little repetitive for me.  The Frye boots I've been rocking for 16 years tend to get a daily wearing in the winter no matter the corresponding outfit.  They're already getting noticeably beaten up.  It's a trade off to being comfortable and warm.  They're also kind of my signature at this point.  Yippie, it's Christmas!
