Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving because in all of the every day hustle and bustle of the world this is one of the few times of the year I am able to see my ENTIRE family all in one day. I LOVE it! Also, the fact that my birthday happened to fall on Thanksgiving this year totally made it that much more epic because I secretly pretended that everyone got together and cooked just for ME! (Totally not a selfish thought at all, I know)

So, Lexi of Glitter, inc. , and I teamed up with a few other FABULOUS ladies and had way too much fun putting together this deliciously styled Friendsgiving shoot, just in time for Thanksgiving. My husband came over and helped us drag Lexi’s super-awesomely-way- heavy-table and chairs outdoors, so us girls could play!!:) Style Me Pretty Living featured our elegant little Friendsiving Styled Shoot, HERE.

So, here in NC we recently had a winter storm and while I personally prefer the 80 degree Florida Keys weather we were absolutely LOVING just weeks prior to this ..I’ve gotta say, this was absolutely breath-taking ..no, literally, it was so COLD! haha! Okay, sorry, I’m done with my hilarious jokes now. Anyway, me and family went out exploring and I was able to capture nature in one of it’s most gorgeous states. This is what I call ice art, literally stunning. I hope you all enjoy these images. You can purchase them at my Etsy shop HERE.

The Holidays are here and that’s always a great excuse to decorate!!  ..If you’re a decorator. I am not so much, however, I absolutely LOVE Christmas décor, Christmas time is always a magical time. Seriously. I just can’t get my own decorations together in time, ever lol. BUT, I can photograph it beautifully.:)Lexi, of Glitter, inc. is seriously a mini Martha Stuart and LOVES styling and does an amazing job at it. As you can see..
