The Holidays

We went back to Ann Arbor for Thanksgiving last week and were welcomed with this beautiful display of lights. Though it wasn’t quite as impressive as the annual display back in Brooklyn, I couldn’t leave without taking a few shots (thanks 5D for the excellent high ISO settings).

With the holidays now here and the end of the semester creeping up, it’s going to be a crazy few weeks, but I’m going to try and start posting more. I’ve also still helping with my Mom’s blog Ninth and Olive, so please check that out periodically for some great cooking, gardening and other fun things. Usually we try and do a big monster blog when we get together, with lots of photos and recipes, so look for that soon since we will be going down to Florida this month.

Every year I always hear about these amazing Christmas lights in Brooklyn that are a must see. They are actually in the neighborhood next to mine yet I’ve never gone, so when I found someone who shared my enthusiasm (thanks Amy!), and convinced my Husband to drive it was a done deal. Each house tries to out do the next and it’s pretty incredible, and if you go on a weekend evening there’s even a real live Santa!

See the rest of the photos HERE, along with a few fun snow photos (including a few of my cats). Not sure how long they stay up for but I highly recommend checking them out in person. I heard there’s a guy who shuttles people out there in a van from Union Square, or you could just take the subway of course but make sure to bundle up!
