Let the Holidays Begin!

  Now that fall quarter is over, I am ready to embrace the holidays. I can now focus on decorating a tree, Christmas shopping, baking, and spending more time with the people I love. Today I went and got some materials to make some ornaments, and tomorrow Tommy and I are going to chop down a small tree.

  My backyard must have gotten the holiday memo, because a small amount of some kind of holly looking plant has begun to grow. I am not much of a gardener, even though I would like to be. I am allergic to pollen, grass and other outside things. All those sneezes and eye itching turned me off from working in the yard.

  Because of this, our yard is full of weeds and other mystery plants. It's fun to go outside to find new things growing and decomposing. These bright little berries were a pleasant surprise.


  1. Congrats on being done with the semester! I'm currently in the midst of finals myself. Not fun :( But I appreciate pretty posts like this to offer a much needed distraction! haha

    Enjoy the holidays :)

  2. Yes, Amanda - so happy that you're done with your semester. :)

    These photos are amazing! What kind of camera and lens do use use to produce these amazing bokeh? I am still working on creating bokeh, but can't seem to get it.... :)
