It's felt a lot more like December than February these past few days! We had a HUGE snow fall that cancelled classes today and gave me time to happily snap the beauty of a winter's day. I'm a cozy knits kind of girl, so any excuse to pile them on, and snow is a FABULOUS one, makes me happy. ;)

As I type this, glorious rays of winter sunlight are streaming in through the windows. It's in the negatives outside, but it sure is stunning from inside. ;) Here are a few scenes from a sunshine and vegetable filled morning...

Here it is! My little work space where I study, do homework, type articles and browse pinterest. ;) Needless to say, I spend a lot of time at this space, so making it pretty has become a priority. I've hung water colour and pastel art on the wall in front for a pop of color and it works wonders! I also added a mason jar that I plan on filling with everything good that happens in 2014 to remind me to continually be thankful in the everyday! More than excited to read them all when 2015 comes around. ;)
Much love, Vivi

I love looking back on memories. You could say I'm a big culprit of nostalgia. ;) 2013 in three words would be: transitioning, challenging, and peaceful. Graduating from high school, beginning University, getting my braces off and chopping off 18 inches of hair were big transitions in my life. There were stretching, more challenging times where all I wanted to do was cry, and cry I did. But amidst any tears, there were peaceful times. From sitting in the garden with my family, going to the mountains with my Grad class, and baking treats in my faithful kitchen, to learning to drive (okay not so peaceful) and a healthy dose of yoga.

the sweetest of cupcakes
presents (now opened) wrapped beneath the tree
mom sipping coffee in the early morning light
more festive cupcakes! the eggnog flavor gets my vote
brother's new snowflake bedsheets
and mmm, our annual tradition mincemeat tarts on Christmas morning
it's a good life. full of food and festivities and flavor.
thank you God, for your constant supply and love, you are good.

My friend Shelby and I took these photos back when fall was still in full swing, with orange carpets of fallen leaves and stunning trees. Today, any sign of autumn has been covered by rain, rain, and more rain! The leaves may have been washed away, but looking at these pictures brings me right back to the crisp, windy air of a November morning.
As much as I love Autumn, I couldn't be smiling wider at the fact that Christmas is so very close. ONE WEEK. Wait, didn't I, uh, just start University? Or, uh, turn 18, yesterday? Wowza.
Much love, Vivi

Last night my friend Hannah and I spent hours and hours creating the most unique gingerbread creations we could. Happy, confused, monotone- all sorts of gingerbread men were brought to life. ;)
