Current Obsession: Full Moons

Moon titleI think full moons are marvellous, especially during these long winter nights. They stay so bright and beautiful through the darkness, providing an almost magical glow across the eerie mountainscape. And the moon seems so much bigger up north.

Fortunately for me, my husband looks amazing in it! So rugged and manly yet still stylish and on trend.  Together we own too many pieces of clothing in buffalo plaid – shirts, jackets, hats, pyjamas etc. We even have a buffalo plaid trapper hat for Clifford! But we can’t seem to get enough.
