  • and welcome to the blog! I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with Rusty, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just the two of us - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with your cup of tea and begin reading. Enjoy, friends! (Latest posts on the right!) --->

I’m a little late in my postings. With college graduation only a few steps away, my workload has been crushing down on me and therefore leaves me with less time to focus on my photos. With that said, I love sharing photos of my family and giving people a little glimpse of our life. Thanksgiving this year was typical to most Thanksgivings; Paul and I go to Ma and Dad’s and watch them during the final steps of the dinner preparation.There is usually a point where it gets pretty stressful – when Ma is trying out a new gravy recipe because last year’s didn’t work out so well. I am quite happy to say that this year’s was a success! Everything turned out beautiful and tasted amazing!

My sister and her family come over after they are at her in-laws’ dinner and enjoys pies with us. This year Ma made “homemade” pies (pie filling and frozen crust :)). Another success!

In a nutshell, this is what we do. I love our little holiday traditions, however tiny they may be, and love spending time with my wonderful family.

If any of you have had the chance to either read Pride & Prejudice or watch the 2005 film, you will most likely agree that every girl should have their own Mr. Darcy. If you have not had the pleasure of doing either, I hope you can appreciate the tiny insight into one of the most romantic love stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Thank you to Ashley, my dearest cousin, for being my model. Her love of reading, tea, and Jane Austen helped make this shoot seem almost like it was set back to the early 1800’s, where the story takes place.

Mr. Darcy’s proposal to Lizzy: “You have bewitched me body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.”
