There have been times, especially lately, when I look at dark-haired ladies with something akin to envy, and I briefly consider going from redhead to ravenhead. But then a photoshoot like this happens - with the sun making everything glow - and I decide that I am actually quite happy with my hair. There's something magical about the golden hour, and I'm very glad Chris and I were able to capture it. It's so fleeting.
I'm a little bit overwhelmed by all the attention this little old blog has been getting in the past week! Between mentions on Tieka's blog and being featured on ModCloth's blog and Tumblr, I've picked up more than a few new readers here. Welcome! I'm still trying to catch up with my inbox, so bear with me. I've had a busy week - perhaps best illustrated by the fact that my Bloglovin' reading list stands at a daunting 296 unread posts. I'm eager for the evening when I can make a big mug of homemade hot chocolate and make a dent in that list.
Speaking of homemade, I'm hoping that I'll have lots of cozy cold-weather recipes to share soon! Daylight savings time has made it harder than ever to do photos for outfit posts (it's already dark by the time I get home from work), so I think this blog may become a little bit more food focused in this cold season.
Though all is warm and golden in these photos, we're actually experiencing our first snowfall of the season here - so that's my cue to curl up with Chris and a hot drink and watch some Doctor Who. Have a great week, everyone!
