Holiday Wishes

Growing up my memories of Christmas included waking up (very) early, unwrapping my stocking before anyone else was up (just to rewrap it so I wouldn't get in trouble for starting without my sister), waking my sister and opening our stockings together.  

From there I would wake my parents, put the coffee on to brew so it was ready for them and make up a plate of my mom's shortbread cookies to eat while we opened gifts. (Breakfast could always wait.)

 

After the gifts were unwrapped, we would have breakfast and watch the Disney Santa Clause parade together in our PJ's.

 

The rest of the day was spent playing with new toys, enjoying the sunshine at the beach (as long as weather allowed), watching the nutcracker ballet on TV (if I had any say) and then coming back to make a Christmas feast to share with our cousins and neighbours Helen & Henry.

 

Some of my best memories were spent with my family on Christmas Holidays. So many of my friends talked about going out to play in the snow on Christmas holidays but until my teenage years I was happy to enjoy all the best of the season with my family in the land of sunshine and palm trees, Florida.

 

As we get older I suppose things change. We get busy with jobs, with families of our own. We break the old traditions and create new ones of our own.

 

However you celebrate the holidays (and whichever holidays you celebrate) I hope they are full of love, laughter, and making memories with the people that mean the most to you.

 

Getting into the spirit

It's the most wonderful time of the year! ChristmasDayAlyssa2011RNP_6

I will be very honest, I can not believe it's December 19th already! Not only does the lack of snow outside the windows feel weird but it's been such a busy year that I'm left going wait...where did the fall go?

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I love decorating, baking (shortbread of course), singing Christmas carols and best of all...the time with friends and family to celebrating another fabulous year!

 

Tonight I decided it was time to get things going with the tree going up (I'm so late, I know) and working with my daughter for the first batch of a family tradition, Shortbread!

 

Now I wanted to take a moment to reach out to you, the most awesome-est people I know including couples I've already worked with, couples I am excited to work with soon, fellow wedding professionals, and all of our friends and family, to wish you a Happy Holiday Season!

 

No matter what holiday you are celebrating this season I wish you love and laughter, health and happiness with friends and family now and all throughout the year.

 

Yours Enthusiastically,

Rebecca Signature

Style Me Monday: Gift Card Spree!

Every year I'm spoiled by those around me with love, gifts, and the inevitable mini deck of gift cards. While many of these go for things like my Tim's fix (Hot Chocolate & Double Chocolate donuts), I'm often lucky enough to recieve a gift card for some of my favourite clothing stores. This year I'm sharing the great pieces I picked up that fit my style!
First Stop - My Favourite Clothing Store RW & Co.
I went in with one idea of what I wanted, Went into the changeroom with a whole stack of items, and came out with some fabulous items.
There are many items I love there - flowing tops in rich hues, structured jackets that I am obsessed with, and layering options galore! I could have spent a fortune on a whole new wardrobe but I held back...why? #1 I'm in the process of getting healthy (including losing weight) and don't want to be replacing things again in a few weeks to a few months. #2 It's a new year which means new collections of fabulous items are right around the corner! (have you seen their new Pure Femininity collection? See it at http://www.rw-co.com/)
In the end I decided to stick with my two favourite items that fit me now but with a stretch that will allow them to fit me for most of the get healthy - get fit process. The first is a classic black pencil skirt that instead of a zipper features elastic inserts on the side to be able to slip the skirt on and off easily but also gives me great maneuverability when I'm shooting. The second, the beautiful skinny pants you see below. I have long admired the skinny jeans & skinny pants on women all around me while being too nervous to dive in myself, now it's time. I love the bright teal hue! Great to pair with my collection of neutral tops, blazers, & shoes while still adding a little more pizazz.

 

My other shopping spree is likely my most favourite store in the entire world! What can I say, I'm a reader...I dream of a home with a library like the one the beast gives Belle in Disney's Beauty and the beast. So, when I get gift cards to Chapters, it takes alot of work to choose out books...pick a favourite? "I could no sooner choose a favourite star in the skies" (Drew Barrymore in Ever After)
Some of the gift cards came from my amazing spouse so he put one condition in place...at least one book must be a personal book. Not business, not photography...a personal book that I could read for fun, for my own enjoyment, and for time to myself to forget my worries. Ouch! That changed a few things and made the choices all the more challenging. In the end here's what I chose...
