Enjoy it while you can

If you haven't already, please enter my giveaway for this beautiful, handmade, sterling silver pendant, FAITH COURAGE LOVE, from the r house couture. And check out their site for other inspiring jewelry. the r house couture began as a way for Mrs. R - the r house - to make money to help pay legal fees for the contested adoption of their 2nd child. the r house is a blog about all-things-adoption.

Although I consider myself a cold-weather person (I hate to sweat, love jeans & a sweater, and my all-time favorite activity is curling up in a quilt with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate) I do recognize there are some really nice things about this time of year .....
I took these pictures at my in-laws house while on a work trip last week
