friday night


We sat the corner of the bar as little white puffs of snow floated down from the night sky. Groups of people came and left, leaning over us occasionally to place orders. We were in our own little world, sampling bourbon and tequila barrel stouts and giggling at the odd bits of overheard conversation - "You should totally have a wedding on ice, ride in on a zamboni!" - letting them spark our own. "Could you imagine that with our friends?" I pictured a sloppy arrangement of the old hockey boys struggling to keep it together at such an event. They know how to skate just fine, but it would certainly be a show. I hadn't realized how full the room had gotten. I love that feeling, as if you're the only two there, tucked away and happy as a clam at high water. I am a lucky girl.

For our date Friday night I kept things simple and comfortable in a romantic embroidered top with an open camel colored cardigan (that JD assured me did not look frumpy), dark wash denim, and the most comfortable suede over the knee boots. As the weather has been challenging (hello blizzard 2015!) we have been experimenting with shooting indoors as of late. It's certainly not the same, but it is warmer. 

To all of you currently enjoying this blizzard, stay safe and warm!
