So, it’s obviously been a LONG time since I updated. Once so much time has gone by, it’s hard to know where to start in order to catch up. So… I scrolled through my photos and figured I’d grab the ones showing what we’ve been up to… all the way back to Halloween!
After Halloween we traveled to Memphis, celebrated Thanksgiving, did a little cooking and celebrated the holidays with friends. If you click on the photos, the captions should give a bit more insight 🙂
I apologize for not updating more frequently. Lately I’ve been consulting part-time for a friend (see the caramels photo!) and her new cooking school venture. I’m still advocating for better beauty with Beautycounter (see the photo of all of the products I stopped using!!) and am looking for the missing piece to the puzzle. I’m not sure if that’s a new full-time job, taking classes and making a career change or hustling to keep things moving, but I’m letting 2016 take it’s course and planning to enjoy the ride (and all the travel planned over the next 12 months!).
My Halloween look – comfortable everywhere but the face.
Our spooky front entry – except we had NO trick or treaters!
Kyle captured this at the party we attended.
We made a trip to Memphis for a beautiful wedding and saw some music history!

I made Kyle do this and thought it was hilarious. He didn’t agree.
We saw the ducks at The Peabody Hotel! They swim in the fountain all day and then roll out the red carpet so they can go home & sleep.
These are all the products I pulled from my bathroom and haven’t used since because they have toxic ingredients inside.
After Thanksgiving dinner we had some in-depth conversations.
My pumpkin trifle – have made this almost every year, I think it’s my only tradition.
Kelly and I visited Duff’s Cakemix in West Hollywood – these are my creations.
Kyle and I took a Caramel & Truffle making class at The Gourmandise School – this is everything we brought home! Didn’t last long…
I may have borrowed this photo, but it’s what our caramels looked like 🙂
I participated in a holiday boutique – I set up my display in our house the night before for practice!
Our friend Jessica came to visit and desperately tried to break into “The Office.”
The first photo I took in 2016 from the Sprouts parking lot.
Kyle and Jessica making a Buffalo Chicken Wreath for NYE. Tasty!

One thought on “Catching Up Through Pictures”
Allie so happy to see these pictures of you and how happy you are! You have both grown into such beautiful young women! One day I hope to see you both again! I can live vicariously thru you and my kids.
Bunker is in Austin, Kristin is in Nashua NH, Bebo just moved to Alexandria VA after 4 years in Shanghai, and Connor lives in Boston. I know you probably barely remember them, but we certainly had some fun times when you all were little! Love to the both of you!
