December in Review

Over lunch a friend and I discussed the magic of Christmas & I mentioned that I love coming home to the glow of my Christmas tree. It's warm and inviting -setting the perfect mood after a long day in the office. With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, sometimes we forget to stop and enjoy it! So this year I made it a priority to slow down and savor the season, do something nice for those less fortunate and remember the true meaning of Christmas. 

 Earlier this month, my mom and I went to the most darling Christmas tree farm. We each purchased a fresh wreath  (I love having fresh pine in my house -it smells divine and offers a bit of nostalgia) & watched them wrap the trees and hoist them up onto the cars. It was such a fun day, we both agreed to make it an annual event.

Mikayla and I went on a "sister date" which included a fabulous five course meal and a screening of It's a Wonderful Life. We laughed until we cried, then we *I* actually did cry at the end of the movie! 

I finished my Christmas shopping, hosted two parties (one of which was an earring exchange, so fun!) and baked a million cake balls...as well as a few other sweet treats for my coworkers.  

I truly love this time of year -I think I've watched Elf half a dozen times...and oh. my. gosh. I've got to stop eating candy canes! I'm addicted I tell you!

On a completely unrelated note, my geraniums are still in full bloom! Can you believe it!? Somehow I've managed to keep them alive since June ...which is pretty awesome considering I stopped watering them back in October! :-) 

Before we go, here are a few of my favorite things on the internet this month:

-Yes and Yes

-Tomy Prez

theSkimm story  -love theSkimm, loved this article! #GirlBoss

-Sugar & Cloth


Boho Chic Oklahoma Vineyard Wedding I was so excited to see my friend's wedding featured in Wedding Wire! Recognize that big white chalkboard? I was more than happy to loan it to her on her special day and beamed with pride when I saw these photos (taken by my super talented friend Savanna!) Also, I hand lettered the other chalkboards for the wedding. I loved the simplicity of the venue and decor. The bride has impeccable taste and it really shows in these photographs! (oh! be sure to read the photo camptions -their story is adorable!)
