Little Cream Riding Hood.

Hello all! I hope this post finds everyone excited about Christmas. I know I am! I am so excited to give the Hubbs his present. I've been trying to convince him that we should exchange gifts now instead of waiting til Christmas. Actually, it's been a week of pleading, but alas, the man won't budge. He is just so stubborn! So, I have given up and only ask him once a day. I hope Christmas gets here soon!
It has been raining cats and dogs for almost a week here in California. That is unheard of for our sunny state! It finally stopped raining last night and I couldn't wait to get out and enjoy today. I wanted to have one last post before Christmas because it will be a few days until the next one. One of my favorite trends for fall/winter are chunky knits. They just make me feel so warm and cozy. This sweater was perfect for this brisk, cold day.
The pics were shot in this hidden gem of a place in San Dimas (a suburb east of LA). It had a very eerie Twilight/Narnia feel. Every little sound frightened me. I'm such a scaredy cat! Nevertheless, it was so beautiful and perfect for this post.


Lastly, I would love to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! And amidst all the gift-giving, eating and family gatherings, let's remember the real reason: Jesus Christ!

"Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace! Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings, ris'n with healing in His wings.
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King!"
