Waking up to the smell of our first Christmas tree. Sunday night we decorated, using gold and red as our theme, and sipped on wine in a living room lit with candlelight. It was perfect.
Finding the time to pick up books once again. Currently on my bedside: The Help (because I must read the book before I can watch the film) and Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (because this classic teaches me something new every time).
Trying to collect as many memories as I waking up early just to watch the sunrise.
Falling deeper in love each day with an extraordinary (and extraordinarily handsome) man.
Capturing life with my new Canon PowerShot SX230HS. A picture is forever.

I can't wait to read The Help. I have read the Habits several times. It's on the money.
Beautiful images.
