Christmas in NYC.

GHere they are, the pictures from our Christmas vacation, the ones that I told myself I would post before the year ends, and even if I’m really pushing it, I’m getting it done. Clint and I were able to go up to New York City with a bunch of family for a long weekend right before Christmas and oh what a treat it was to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year in the most wonderful city in the world.

The last time I was in NYC was five years ago when Clint was away at Basic Training. That whole Summer I took photos everywhere holding my “Wish you were here” sign for pictures that I would eventually pull together and gift to Clint. I was pretty excited to be able to recreate a picture with my man by my side this time :]

A day off.

Yesterday I took the day off from all things job-searching related to visit an old-friend in her new city. Here are a few shots from my day exploring Pinehurst, NC. 

We went to the Historic Pinehurst hotel where there was a festival of Christmas trees going on. This involved dozens and dozens of Christmas trees decorated to a certain theme that were up for auction and included some really creative prizes. Considering I love all things Christmas, I just basked in the glory of the Christmas tunes and the sparkle of the fake snow. It was Christmas bliss. 

This guy was there. He didn’t even have glasses… apparently Santa wears contacts now?

All in all it was a super fun day with a super friend. And it ended snuggling up with this sweet face..
