For those of you who follow FS on instragram, you may already know that our attempt at holiday photos turned into a dog chase around a snowy backyard filled with a lot of random shots, laughter and two very wet furry friends.  It was definitely fun.  If you happen to be in snowy climates this weekend, hope you have the same sort of experiences.  If you live in sun-filled ones, take a dip in the pool for me.  Please? 

This is a perfect comfort dinner to make on cold evenings.
This has to be one of the best look books for winter.
This is the jewelry line I'm currently coveting.
This is again, spot on advice.
This is a perfect cup of hot chocolate.
This is too cute not to post.

...and for the families of loved ones lost in Newtown, 
our deepest condolences go out to you,
may you find comfort and peace in prayer.
