Thanksgiving ++

Thanksgiving ++

I think I finally get Instagram.

Always the latecomer to the party....

This Thanksgiving, we traveled up to Maine to celebrate the holiday with my brother, and congratulate him on buying his first house (!!)   The whole family stayed with him, and he's still making himself at home there.  So there were a few less comforts than I'm used to.  Such as, we slept on the floor in his living room, there was no internet or TV, and I showered once in five days.   Things were cramped and cold, but also filled with lots of spirited conversation and love.  

... And all the pretty photo ops I had planned in my head went poof like a billow of smoke  :P

But amid the chaos, I found it a little easier to whip out my phone and capture little moments, rather than take out my camera.  I do love the camera, and obviously it takes amazing photos... but it can be so unwieldy!  Thus my new love of Instagram was born.

Anyway, we got lucky and it snowed the most majestic snow on Thanksgiving day.  We ate while the white was blinding us out the windows.

(some pictures from the camera!)

We found some time to go out around town and explore the cute little shops (a favorite hobby of mine... pics below!)  We also played games, visited thrift stores, and talked A LOT :)  It was really nice to see my brother again, as he lives so far away.


I think I'll be updating my Instagram a lot more often.  It's such an easy way to take photos and chronicle life.   I FINALLY get it!!  So if you're not following me already, do it here!!   I'll continue to post some of the images here and flesh out stories, as well as post outfits, recipes, and anything else that strikes my fancy :)

Hope everyone had a great holiday!  Totally psyched for Christmas.
