Good morning dears!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Friday night Ryan surprised me by taking me to see a silent film accompanied by the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra at The Museum of Art, followed by a relaxed but romantic dinner at one of our favorite local spots.  We got another six inches of snow on Friday, plus a few more over the weekend, and this week are supposed to see rising temperatures & rain which means a good chance for flooding...ick!  

Suffice it to say, I am in serious need of a winter getaway.  I keep daydreaming about laying in the sun, the warm breeze on my skin {which isn't covered up with layer upon layer of wool}, and drifting away to the sound of the ocean.  Lucky for me, we are heading to Florida in a month for a destination wedding and decided to extend the trip a week.  I can't wait to lay by the water with a few good books, eat fresh seafood, and mostly be able to walk around all day in short sleeves!  What a novelty :) And since a beach vacation always requires a little bit of pre-holiday shopping, I have rounded up some of my favorite goodies to get you warm-weather ready.  Enjoy!
