Merry, Merry!

My girl and her beau were in town for the holiday, and it was a wonderful time having them here!

The Beau loved his new scarf, the color looked absolutely dreamy on him with his skin tone, and of course it doesn't hurt that he's not hard on the eyes to begin with! To respect his privacy, I cropped the photo to just the scarf...

And the girl! She loved her winter hat - I was so happy. I made her wear it for at least 20 minutes. I got an eyeroll from her, but she complied as I had put a lot of work and money into that hat.
