Be Merry!


The Christmas season is here and I am loving all of the traditions of the season.  It’s the season to be merry!our tree small.jpg

Dan does a really good job getting the tree each year! It’s one of his favorite traditions the day after Thanksgiving.

I got this new plaid ribbon from a cute local store, Digs, and I just love it! They have fabulous things right now!


These are our Christmas cards that I ordered from Tiny Prints! I just love how they turned out! I love the gold envelopes with matching liner and address labels. Pretty holiday stamps really complete the look!

I think the pictures that I took on fall break turned out pretty cute too!

This bulb vase is another Digs find! I love how simple and chic it is.

Nanz and Kraft, a local florist, hosted a floral design class at the Boat Club and I loved it. It was a fun night out and I think my arrangement turned out cute.

Harper was in her dance school’s version of the Nutcracker. She was a French clown! It was very cute!

Harper’s fifth-grade recital was last week and I was amazed at how pretty it was. They did such a great job!

We had fun at the gingerbread workshop! Work a little, eat a little!

neighbor gifts small.jpg

We got cute Godiva chocolate for our neighbors, which is much less stressful than baking! Finishing them off with cute tags from Tiny Prints made them polished and perfect!

I made sterling silver and blue quartz earrings for all my children’s teachers. I got these adorable gift tags from Paper Source! I think they make the presentation!

This home fragrance is so simple and makes the house smell like Christmas! I just slice up an orange, add some cranberries, a cinnamon stick and a tablespoon of cloves to some water and simmer. I keep adding water as it evaporates!
