Holiday Strolling

I especially love downtown Annapolis during the holiday season.

We spent the morning milling around town.

Just about every door and window where dressed for the season.

We even made some new friends.

There were many brightly colored front doors.

We were on a Star Monograms mission.

It was time to get down to monogramming business.

The store was filled with new treasures.

A gingerbread sailboat by Emma Bug...only in Annapolis!

These guys must attract a lot of new business.

Nice photos - they remind me a lot of Nantucket.

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Beautiful Annapolis pictures. You and your sister look lovely as always.
Again, I like seeing what your Mother is wearing. She is so chic and a inspiration for us ladies of a certain age.
Interesting to see snow on the ground and boats still in the water....
Your new friends are adorable.

What a great day of shopping and touring the town! Love the photos you included - scenes like that always get me in the Christmas spirit. Star Monograms looks like a place I could spend hours in, and those pups are TOO CUTE!

I just spent Saturday around Annapolis. It was so pretty but just a tad bit too cold. I am glad you enjoyed yourself!

I do love Annapolis this time of year...Williamsburg's decorations are great, but there's nothing here like Star Monograms!

Such great pics of you and your family....so happy to see photos of the Bernese Mountain Dogs! I have two, they are not a very common breed. I always get excited seeing them. They are such a great "Christmas" dog. Martha Stewart has had them in so many of her Christmas magazines. Happy Christmas to you and yours! xoxo

Thanks for the pictures! Annapolis is one of our favorite cities and on the list of places to retire to! Merry Christmas!

After I read your post, I contacted Katie at Star Monograms about the goldtone single charm bracelet on the front left corner of the table in one of the above pictures. Hopefully she will be able to order it for me after the first of the year. I hate that I live 13 hours away. Merry Christmas!

I love reading your blog. You keep me into the fashion. What type of boot do you have on in the pick? Thanks for sharing.

DB,
I got the boots from Piperlime awhile ago...I love their shoes! xx

j.mosby,
My mom is a huge Stubbs fan...I remember being a kid waiting for her to try shoes on in the Palm Beach store. xx
