Scrapbook Layouts

Trying to finish all the past winter snow pictures I have and get them in an album

Our favorite local farm, they have the best breakfast sandwiches, baked goods and pot pies

A local shopping center by us has this cute London phone booth

Snow pics from 2 years ago, we've been lucky so far this winter so I might as well get all the past seasons snow pictures scrapped

Scrapbook Pages

Figured I'd start the new year off with some Scrapbook pages, didn't do a lot the end of last year so really want to get caught up now that it's Winter. I'm participating in a scrapbook page a day challenge to help me get more pages done, hope to do over 31 pages this month. Here are some new pages I made
Flowers from my birthday last year, two of my favorites and of course in pink

Snow melting off our deck last spring after a long, snowy winter

My local favorite food so glad I discovered it - The Frenagel - a bagel/doughnut hybrid

I always celebrate the first iced coffee of the season, to me it's the signal that warm weather is finally arriving after a long, cold winter. This one must've been the first nice day we had in March since I had my nails done for St Patrick's Day.

A selfie in the car love this background paper and couldn't wait to use it

Christmas Snickerdoodles

Christmas in NYC

Figured I'd share some Christmas pictures of the city I took when we went to see the tree. I love living close enough to go into the city often. We also tried out a new Restaurant in the city the night of this visit called Bar Bacon. I had the lobster bacon mac and cheese which was amazing along with a beer from Brooklyn Brewery. There's just something magical about all the lights and decorations at Christmas.

Chocolate Chip cookies are always my favorite so these were perfect for the Christmas Cookie baskets I made. Walnuts and chocolate chip cookies are such a great combination. Here's the link to the recipe
