Welcome to my neighborhood darlings!
Here's a little peek at the lakeside community where I live, which is set right on the base of a mountain.  Pretty loverly, eh?  I never considered myself a country gal.  I grew up my whole life in your picture perfect suburbia, which I wouldn't change for the world, but I am really enjoying soaking up the beauty of my new surroundings.  It all kind of reminds me of a scene from a Currier and Ives print which is the best this time of year.

Monday is here and I can hardly believe how close Christmas actually is.  It's been so busy getting situated in the new home and meeting so many beautiful new friends.  I don't think I've had a weekend free yet so I really need to get on the ball with baking and presents and decorating and all that wonderful stuff.  Anyone else out there in the same boat??  Do share:)

Much love & holiday cheer,

  4. Your neighbourhood is so STUNNING! You fit right into this beautiful winter country side :) I just love your gorgeous floral headband, the colour looks beautiful on you! I don't know any other blogger that can rock these nearly as well as you do :)

  5. Oh Marisa! You are so absolutely gorgeous! I adore your outfit so very much, especailly those socks. ;). Your neighborhood is beautiful. I'm a country gal and I just recently moved into town. It's still small but it's completely different from living in total isolation in the woods.. lol.

    I'm in the same boat as you! I threw some wreaths on the doors here and there and bought a few Christmas gifts, but other than that? Bah! We are still trying so very hard to get into our home by the end of this year/beginning of next. I'm so glad you guys are finally settled in!
