Screen Shot 2015-01-05 at 6.21.17 PM{After dinner we walked outside to find it snowing … HARD. We were not prepared, but loved it. We walked around the beautifully lit Plaza like a giddy young couple, then raced back to our hotel for warmth.}

Things never slow down in the Alderman household (if you’ve havent realized that yet) and they’re not slowing down this weekend. Tonight we’re headed to St. Louis to visit a dear friend and see a {hopefully} fantastic musical. I’ll share all the details when we return. Happy weekend, friends!
