351/365 – Piles

Last night I got to hang out with my two most wonderful girl friends for the first time in a year. Kelley, Blair, and I were finally all in Stillwater at the same time, and so we managed to get together to catch up and watch a movie. And it was beyond wonderful. I missed those girls so much. And if you are reading this, I love you both!!

Anyways, (sorry for that personal stuff there), by the time the movie was over it was late, I was exhausted, and I didn’t have a picture. I was planning on just heading home and finding something in my house, but as I was walking out I saw the pot with the pine and lights, and the snow piled on top of it all. Snow on top of Christmas lights is always one of the most beautiful things to me, so I decided to take a few pictures before walking to my car.

340/365 – Bokeh Galore!

**Wednesday, December 15

Yesterday was the most perfect day ever. I woke up, made pancake batter and went over to surprise Elliot because it was his birthday. His parents stopped over to eat with us too. We then headed to Maker’s Mark Distillery, to continue on the tradition we started on his birthday last year at Four Roses. It was so beautiful out there, but unfortunately my camera battery died after just a few minutes of the tour. After the tour we headed to have a delicious dinner at Belle Notte, which is where this picture is from. They have a huge (fake) tree right in the middle, with these beautiful lights on it. It was wonderful. After dinner we went to Elliot’s boss’s house, where we sang happy birthday to Elliot as he blew out the candles, ate cake, played Wii with their two-year old daughter, and sat in the hot tub drinking bourbon while it snowed. It was an absolutely perfect end to a perfect day.

And here is one of the few shots I was able to get at the distillery.

68/365 – Purple Blooms

My wonderful boyfriend, Elliot, and I went on a walk today while his laundry was going (which probably wasn’t a good idea since my ankle has now swelled way back up). I am so lucky that he is so patient with me and doesn’t get annoyed when I stop to take pictures every five steps. I absolutely love crocuses and they are blooming all over Lexington, so I am just in heaven.

I may not be able to post for the rest of the week, tomorrow I will have an insanely busy day, and then for the weekend I will be in NC for a wedding. So, on that note, have a great weekend everyone!

Keep your eyes out for a ton more pictures that I absolutely fell in love with while on this walk!
