us at christmas.

I adore the holiday season. Absolutely adore! It’s when the rain falls and the big coats come out, the scarves are thrown around our necks and big thick socks snuggle our toes inside our new leather boots. It’s when the air smells of cinnamon and pine from the tree lots on every corner. It’s when...

    Hi Ala!
    I’m a long time reader, but have never commented (I don’t think). I just wanted to let you know that even though I’m in Texas and you’re in SoCal (My home state) we SO could have met in person last week if I wasn’t a chicken. I was waiting for some friends to exit Space Mountain at Disneyland on Thursday, and saw you come off the ride. I actually might have creeped out your husband, because I made eye contact and recognized him. I immediately felt like an idiot for not saying something, but I didn’t want to interrupt your date day.
    I hope you had a wonderful time at the Happiest Place on Earth, and I LOVE your Christmas card pictures. 🙂
    Merry Christmas!

Another year of thanks.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am beyond grateful for this life. No matter how silly or deep my thoughts are, they are mine and I’m so thankful for everything. The good, the bad, the pretty and the the ugly. For my triumphs but more importantly, for my mistakes. For HIP studio...
