Almost two years ago, my aunt and her sweetie, Keith, purchased an adorable cabin and some land up near Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Her and I love to cook together and our general talks of Christmas dish ideas transpired into plans for us to spend Christmas up there and cook up a three-day feast together. I was really excited to spend Christmas somewhere where it actually felt like winter. I know I’m crazy but fall and winter are my favorite months and the colder, more rainy, and more icy/snowy, the better to me, I love it. I really miss having seasons, especially fall and winter. Lucky I do because it was in the 20s and 30s most of the time with sleet on Saturday :)
Since one of my 2015 blog goals is to get more familiar with my Nikon D3200, I took it with me so I could test it out outside (still in auto though :/). I was really impressed at how good some of these came out when not really playing around with any settings, also because most of these were taken below freezing and/or raining or sleeting. I was going to take pics of all our cooking but it just got to be too much, so I resorted to just nature pics. These are a few of my faves…
We can’t wait to go back, maybe this summer, when it’ll be easier to take pictures since I’ll have feeling in my fingers.

Gorgeous pictures! You have to go back this summer, it’s so pretty there!
Aw, thank you Amy! I’ve never been told I took gorgeous pictures before :)
Lovely pictures, Emily! Sounds like you had a wonderful time! Hubby and I say every year that “next year” we’re getting out of the desert and heading to the mountains for Christmas – it still hasn’t happened! Some day… (:
It felt so much more like Christmas being up there, it was just beautiful :)
