Best. Santa. Ever

This is our fourth Christmas with Izzy and finally a Santa picture where she is smiling! The pictures from the previous three years are quite entertaining, as Izzy look rather frightened in each one. So happy this one turned out great!

Fall Festivities

I can't believe fall is here again! It seems like such a short time ago that it was last fall and we were enjoying all the seasonal festivities... This picture was taken in the fall of 2008 of Izzy taking a pony ride at a local pumpkin patch. I try so hard to enjoy the season change here but after living in the Midwest for so long I have to say - fall is best in the Midwest! Nothing like that cool crisp autumn air, hot apple cider (with cinnamon sticks) and all the typical fall themed festivities.

The Great Ocean Road

I read a recent news article about the happiest cities in the world to live in. I wasn't surprised to learn that two of them are in Australia (Melbourne and Sydney). And I have to say that my time living in Melbourne I had some of the happiest times of my life. Such a great city. For anyone that is into the arts, Melbourne is a fabulous city full of fashion, art and entertainment that simply puts other cities to shame. I miss Melbourne... mostly I miss Brighton Beach, St Kilda, Spencer Street, the Docklands, the Yarra, Swanston Street, Chapel Street, and much more. But more than anything i miss being a hop skip and a jump from The Great Ocean Road. Here is a picture i snapped from my last trip along the Great Ocean Road back in 2006. I've lost count of the amount of times I have been lucky enough to travel down the Great Ocean Road but it never gets old. The 12 apostles take my breath away every time I see them.

Beach Days

We hit the beach once a week in the summertime. Occasionally something comes up and we cant but usually we head down on a Saturday or Sunday morning nice and early before the crowds start arriving and before it gets uncomfortably hot.. I'm thinking we only have another 4-8 weeks of good beach weather before the water starts getting too cold so we better make the most of it while we can! I snapped this pic on of our recent beach days, every now and then i love getting pictures of Izzy when she isn't posing, or saying cheese. Sometimes the totally random shots are the best!

The Robin Egg Blue Typewriter....

I discovered this typewriter recently on a trip to my favorite local thrift store... It seems to be in good working condition but I just need to find some tape for it! Even if it doesnt end up working well I know its going to look super cool just as a decoration. And I love that fact that the color is robin egg blue!
