Insert Movie Montage Here

So I love fall, all things cold and brisk.  I have shared this many times and I will continue to share, trying to convince and just share the love of fall and winter.  It may be the build up to Christmas... yes, I REALLY love Christmas.  I don't love the commercialism, no the sometimes whining kids, no the extra bills that come around.  But swell of memories that swirl through my brain with each scent.  Pulling the pumpkin pie out of the oven much like my mother used to do for my every birthday, (not a fan of b'day cake) the smell and sounds of crackling bacon before the croissant breakfast that no matter how full you are you still have another, the hands wrapped tightly about a hot chocolate as you have the best cheap date ever: driving around looking at Christmas lights, the shots of flour that seem to slowly cover you as small family members try to "help" with baking... it is the cliche movie moments, including the arguments that WILL happen.  It is my husband and my tradition of spending Christmas Morning snuggled up on the couch watching Love Actually and Christmas night with a few of our close friends who couldn't make it home for the holidays.

Yea, I'm a little excited.

I recently acquired this skirt and sweater.  I had to pair them together.  I really didn't have a choice after getting a taste of my "friends" styled 90's apparel, I was hooked.   So once more I pulled it out again with a little modern sprinkles .  I hope you get some nice flash backs...
