bringing snow to greensboro, nc

so i moved back to greensboro for the most awesome job. (more on that later)
it's been such a quick transition so close to the holidays that half the time i cant even remember it's christmas.... and it's NEXT THURSDAY!
to make things even worse, there is snow in other parts of the country and not here. this makes me sad! I had fully expected to be in the north when winter rolled around and was so excited to experience a REAL winter...but alas im in a place where we get little to no accumulation.

sooo tonight Harrison and i decided to have a secret surprise project to give to his mommy! we made a gingerbread house and made our own snowy landscape!!!
it was festive and fun and full of sugar! 3 year olds and sugar are a fun combination! we definately had a blast and who knows...maybe Harrison and Auntie Addie started a holiday tradition!

oh and side note: when i told harrison that we had to read the directions first he responded like this...
"I'll read the directions Auntie Addie"

he grabbed the paper and "read"...

"First we need to build the house and put cherries on top"

News Flash: NJ isnt just the parkway...

This is where i live!
Isnt it beautiful!?

I woke up today to find wild turkey in our back yard affectionately called "Narnia" (i swear it looks just like narnia! complete with wildlife)
I've never really seen a wild turkey roaming around before and this one was HUGE!
Later, as i went out to take a stroll, 3 deer scattered out of our front yard as i passed.
Too bad i didnt see any or our neighborhood bears, cause that would have just topped of the day!
Now dont get me wrong, the city is my first love, but recently i've been really enjoying the wildlife im surrounded by.
I cant believe how fortunate i am to be in such a beautiful place!

Oh my gracious!! Is it true??

So it's been a while... but i have a great excuse! I MOVED TO NYC! So now i bring you beautiful cloud pictures above the most beautiful sight you could ever imagine...SKYSCRAPERS!!!!
I tell's just so much better that landscapes for me! I've always had a love affair with cities and now i can actually eat, breath, work, touch and drink the city anytime i want!
It's MINE! :)

So i started a new job at Kate's Paperie in Soho (my favorite part of the city so far! ) where i am a Custom Printing Consultant for some of the most amazing stationary designers. I'm learning sooo very much my brain hurts, but i'm also being inspired everyday! I love being in a place where i am surrounded by beautiful paper...

And on that note i must sleep... beautiful paper calls early for me tomorrow.
