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 us two (three with Rusty) - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with your cup of tea and begin reading. Enjoy, friends!

Much Needed Vacation | We’re in Mexico!

Hello friends!! While you’re reading this, Paul and I will be on our way home from a much needed vacation to Mexico. I’m writing this before we leave so I don’t have to work on our trip (which is how all the posts have been done this past week), so this might sound weird. :) This season has been both extremely wonderful and exhausting and we are so excited to relax on the beautiful beaches of Mexico. We planned this trip just thinking we were going away for our anniversary (did you see our wedding day post??) but once things started getting booked in the fall, we realized this was going to be a very blessed time to just relax. :) I’m planning on taking a billion photos to show you and, if skies permitting, I’m planning on putting together another set of sky overlays for My Photoshop Actions – wouldn’t that just be wonderful?? Mexico sunset skies??! I know!! I’m already missing Rusty but he will be in the wonderful hands of our amazing neighbors – thank you Bruce and Traci!! :) So, be on the watch for some lovely photos coming on the blog next week – there will be another engagement session, photos from Mexico, and, if I’m lucky and find a wonderful couple, perhaps a session on the beach??! Whoop whoop!! Happy Friday, friends!! Cross your fingers I get tan and not burnt!! :)
