Pump It Up

I am definitely a high heel kind of girl.  Not a huge fan of flats, and while I do love boots, if I had my choice, let’s be honest, I’d wear a fab pair of pumps everyday.  And so it should come as no surprise that this season I am especially loving making a statement with my footwear.  Don’t you just love that shoes aren’t just shoes anymore, but rather outfit completing accessories?

I had such a fun weekend in Chicago with friends (of course it went by way too fast).  But I couldn’t be happier to be home with my sweet family.  Well that, and the fact that we are only 2 days away from heading back to Nicaragua for a little vacay.  And let me tell you, I am so excited I can hardly stand it.  You can see my pics from last year’s vacation to the darling town of San Juan Del Sur here.

Happy Monday!!!

J and A After Dark

This fall, J and I decided that we wanted some updated pictures of the two of us.  And so, we enlisted the help of our super talented friend Sam Kanzler of Kanzler Foto.  She and her hubby had taken some photos of J and me a few years ago, and not only were they amazing, but the four of us became fast friends.  Besides being incredibly talented, Mike and Sam are two of the most generous, kindest, and funniest people that I know.  They are just those kind of friends you feel especially blessed to have found in life.  And with that, here is a little preview of a few of my favorites from our photo shoot “Justin and Abby After Dark”…

I hope you are all having a wonderful week and staying warm!  We finally had our first big snow storm here in the SLC-we got about a foot at our house!  I guess it’s safe to say it really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
