I got off work early today and actually made it home when it was still light out so, Grant and I took a walk around the neighborhood and every one's Christmas decorations were still up! It felt like this Christmas season went by in a blink of an eye. There are so many things I wanted to do that I ran out of time for such as admiring Christmas Lights and decorations which I was able to do today. Although Christmas has past we have New Year's Eve to look foward to tomorrow so, we have another reason to celebrate soon enough! Break open the bubbly and pull out the confetti!
If your looking for a New Year's resolution I have the pefect solution that doesn't involve sweating at the gym or giving up dessert: build a warobe you love with classic, timeless pieces that will last for years to come. The iconic trench coat will always be a staple and a stylish choice. I've link a few trench coats in the slide show with different price points.
I knew when we were headed to see Grant's family that we were headed for a small, rural town in Indiana and was warned not to have high expectations since there isn't much besides houses and farm land. Much to my surprise, I was charmed by the beauty of the historic downtown. The cafe, Rembrant's, stunned with it's Christmas decorations wrapping their outside patio in garland and red ribbon and wreaths hung by every door. From the gold City Hall dome to the Statues to the Liberty Bell and the Fire Station the short stroll through downtown is worth a quick visit if your on your way to Indianapolis or Cincinnati. Thick fog climbed to the trees and coated the entire town, the fog thinned out just enough for me to snap a few phtos and made our last morning in Madison feel mystical.
