Merry Christmas

My custom made ornament of me.
I can't hardly believe today is Christmas! This year went by in a blink of an eye. Christmas is my favorite holiday. It's the time of the year everyone just feels a little bit more love - spending time with our friends and family, giving to those who are in need, letting people know how much we love them, etc. It's wonderful. 
Merry Christmas.

My beau and I collect things on our trip throughout the year to put on our Christmas Tree. This ornament was from a vacation we took to Miami.

O'Chrismas Tree Gala

The O'Christmas Tree Gala happens once a year to help raise money for the Providence Senior and Community Services. Of the past four years I've attended this event, this year was especially special to me because my beautiful sisters were able to accompany me. We had the best time getting all dolled up, enjoying the Christmas cheer and just being able to experience it all with one another. All the photos were shot on my Pentax with Tri-X 400 film.

Something Blue

There is something so special about getting a gift in that little blue box. I remember the first time I gave one to my little sister as a graduation present. As soon as she saw the sweet little box wrapped up in that delicious white bow her eyes grew big, she gasp and looked at me as if it couldn't be true. Sort of in the same way I did on my birthday when my true love gave to me my very own little blue box. Inside was an exquisite Tiffany lock pendant on a chain. I don't think I took that necklace off for months! 
Isn't there something about that little blue box?

Date Night

It's been awhile since our very first date but I can clearly remember the emotions I was going through - I was so excited, I was straight up giddy like a little school girl! I remember carefully planning several outfits in my head and reading too much into what message each outfit would send you. When the day came, I spent several hours getting ready... carefully doing my hair, lining my eyes, and curling my lashes so I can bat them at you. Today nothing has changed much really... except now I can kiss you after our date.
