I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. – Anna Quindlen

A Day of Hearts

The heart shaped celebration of Valentine’s day continues!

Here is what we had in celebration of the day. First were heart shaped cranberry and pecan scones, served with butter and jam, for breakfast.

And then later in the day, not a heart shaped, but heart decorated, hazelnut, cranberry and chocolate ganache covered cake, topped with whipped cream.

Barbie and Me

Once we realized that Barbie and I have almost the same sunglasses, it was just too good of an opportunity not to pull out the sundress, and the bright lipstick and the large plastic jewelry. Can Barbie be one of my fashion icons?

Ethereal Beauty

Winter is beautiful.

OK, maybe I don’t feel the love so much when it is -45 Celsius and I look like the michelin man because of all my winter layers. But let’s focus on the good.

On a day like this, where the light and the frost and the fog create such a beautiful and ethereal landscape- winter is good.
