new england daydreams -note those perfectly formed icicles over the front door ......my heart can't help but do a little flip flop marveling at the beauty of this place. it nurtures my creative spirit and I will never tire of the black and white color palate - forever crisp and clean against the backdrop of any landscape in any season - though its no secret Im particularly fond of it under a blanket of snow. There is a beautiful quiet here this evening, perhaps one of my own making, but I have enshrouded myself in the hushed twilight - no agenda, just giving myself space to be in a rare down moment of the hectic holidays schedule - and it calls for cheese and maybe a glass of red but defiantly a fire in the fireplace

For our 3rd anniversary Eric and I took a quick trip to Carmel to get away. As we were exploring the quaint streets, we stumbled into a cool little art gallery to look around. After a few minutes, the art curator asked us which painting was our favorite, so I pointed at one across the room. He said, “That one is $50,000 and the frame is included, which is really quite a deal. Would you like me to ship it home for you?” I said, “Oh wow yeah what a deal... 😳but we’re not exactly in a place in life where we should invest that much in art... But thank you.”
AC: “Well it’s all about priorities.”
Me: “Very true, sir. Very true.”
We’ll definitely be back here one day, but it’ll be more for the food and the scenery than the art. 💛🥘🏝
London doesn’t get all the pretty doors! Loving this door / entranceway from the cutest place (and my hometown) in downtown Oakville!
Quietly traveled back to Chicago to photograph a little surprise. Congratulations, @jacquiebeck

Missing last Saturday in Winter Wonderland ❄️

The Castle of Milan is so beautiful at sunset. I was there this afternoon when they lighten up the main tower with the tallest Xmas Tree in Europe - you can see it on my stories! I must admit Milan is at its best during the holiday season 🎄🤶🏼🎅🏼@sorgeniaofficial #ad #metticienergia #bluronpurpose
Every year I welcome the holidays with equal parts excitement and dread. You see I inevitably drag my feet / am legit busy with work to really enjoy the season. Every year I want to volunteer, only to miss the sign up windows.
In the coming weeks I'm looking forward to slowing down, taking stock of a very interesting year both personally and professionally.
Next year I'm certain- in part because I'm more determined than ever- is going to be an amazing year.
How do you approach the holidays? Do you end up feeling overwhelmed, thoroughly excited or a mix of both? I want to know let me know in the comments!

our small town’s sweet little general store, all dressed up for the season 🎄❤️
My dream home is a mix of old and new. Like reaaaallllly old and suuuuupppper modern. I’ve been watching a lot of ‘Grand Designs’ recently, so that’s probably only escalating my love of combining these two elements in architecture. Anywho, this newly renovated concrete home was once abandoned for nearly 70yrs and now it’s, well, the insanely gorgeous space you see above. If you’d like to see more of it, there’s a tour over on the blog. (Link in profile) #hometour #interiorstyle

“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not man the less, but nature more”

В последнее время вас стало больше, поэтому давайте знакомиться и рассказывать о себе🙌🏻
Меня зовут Софи, и это Рождество я встречаю в Нью-Йорке. Я занимаюсь маркетингом, но однажды мечтаю стать дизайнером (вот прямо сейчас учусь👩🏼💻). Обожаю все розовое, путешествовать, красивую еду (и фотографировать ее!😅), жаловаться на плохую погоду и бесконечно пытаюсь сделать свою кожу (и себя) немножко лучше💁🏼
А теперь расскажите о себе! Откуда вы, чем занимаетесь, о чем мечтаете💛
Sonfun looking back at my top@posts
from 2017. It confirmed for me that in spite of me thinking sometimes that I have no "balance" and am too much of a workaholic, my life is filled with doing exactly what I would like it to be. Although it doesn't all show on here, some of my top priorities are represented: Travel and time with my husband and with family, exploring and feeding my wanderlust spirit, capturing amazing young women in their true beauty, taking photos for the sheer joy of it, celebrating nature, and enjoying some relaxing moments in between it all. #2017bestnine #yourtimetoshine #stacyjacobphotography

Saturday Dreaming || I just had to cancel my weekend escape to Bean Town because I have been fighting a house full of germs all week. So instead we will get healthy for the holidays and I will dream of my visit to the newly revitalized @thewalperhotel
last week. This iconic 1893 landmark is in the epicentre of one of Kitchener, Ontario’s oldest neighbourhoods, now a hub of vibrant growth due to the buzzing tech scene and its luxuriously chic vibe is worth the visit.
Bolton Abbey, Yorkshire Dales, UK. This was such a beautiful day, happy with how this photograph turned out 🏛 @instabritain
