turning thirty

A couple of weeks ago I turned the big 3-0. Nothing too scary about it, really. If anything, I feel like others will begin to take me a bit more seriously. Twenties are the time to learn, but thirties seem to come with a bit of responsibility. I feel like I've earned each and every year that has brought me to 30, and I'm ready to see what it has to offer! To celebrate, I pulled out all the stops and wore this new faux fur coat...to work. I mean, why not?! With snow on the ground and the holidays right around the corner, it was the perfect accent to start the next decade of my life!

Contest ends this Wednesday!

giveaway: pigment project earrings

I'm excited to announce a special giveaway in partnership with Pigment Project, a Montana jewelry design duo that uses a vintage handmade loom to bead one-of-a-kind earrings. Earlier this year, I featured the work of Jillian and Jessica on my blog to help spread the word about their newly launched website. Well, the ladies have been hard at work creating new designs for the holidays, and when I saw what they were coming up with, I could barely contain my excitement! I love their use of colors and shapes in the earrings--each one is a unique design inspired by the wild Montana landscape.

With the holiday season in full swing, I teamed up with Pigment Project to give away a pair of their earrings to one lucky reader! All you have to do is enter your name and email below, and then share in the comments your favorite gift that you've given someone in the past. And be sure to visit their website pigmentproject.com for more designs--I'm sure there is someone special that would love a pair of these babies underneath their Christmas tree (they do custom orders too)!

The giveaway will end at midnight Wednesday, December 17, so get typing!

holiday photoshoot

Happy December! I can't believe we are less than a month from 2015! So much to do between now and then--including turning the big 3-0 (tomorrow!!!). To get in the holiday spirit, we decided to take a round of holiday photos a few weeks ago. In looking over our photos from all our travels this past year, we realized that while we had a ton of fun, we failed to get a really great photo of us. Problem solved with a tripod and remote--we just decided to do it ourselves! We picked a weekend day before all the snow hit, got all dressed up in our best red (including Harney Girl) and ventured up to the Montana Capitol. The whole session was about 30 minutes, but we had a lot of fun playing around with the remote (can you spot it in the photos?), trying different setups, and keeping Harney focused on the task at hand.

So in the holiday spirit, here are a few favorites to share, including some of funnier outtakes!
