Northfield Christmas Tree Cutting

Our annual tree cutting trip to Northfield was yesterday and as always it was so much fun! Our friends Matt and Amanda are perfects hosts for the day and this year was no exception. Egg nog and hot cocoa with lots and lots of real whip cream – delicious! I love this time of year in Minnesota when the snow is fresh and beautiful and the best way to stay warm are evenings with good friends and hot mugs of cocoa.

Northfield Cowling Arboretum – Avery & Family

Before the snow arrived in Minnesota I had a photo shoot with my good friends Amanda, Matt, and their rambunctious 3 1/2 year old Avery (who isn’t rambunctious at 3 1/2?!). It’s really hard to sum up our friendship in a few sentences — because I could go on and on. From elementary school, Mt. Kato, DQ, cocktails during the holidays home, to living in their sunroom on Portland Avenue….Oh the stories!! They are dear friends and seriously good people.

It was a perfectly golden sunset evening in Northfield for the photo shoot at The Arb. The light was beautiful but fading quickly so we ran around fast (and maybe bribed the kid with a sucker for a few more shots ! :)

Such a beautiful family! Enjoy!
