december daily {10} – Around Here during Christmas

IMG_9689.jpg

Christmas was sweet and simple this year (well, as simple as we can get it), just what I was hoping for. There were plenty of festive things I wanted to do that didn’t happen, but that’s ok, next year I just have to plan better. Something that I decided last minute was our holiday card […]

december daily {9} – Meeting Santa

Hawke first had a glance at Santa at Disneyland. Santa was approaching Main St. with all his elves and there was a big crowd in front of us that we couldn’t really get close to the parade, but we could still see him approaching our area.   Chris lifted Hawke so he can see better. […]

  I haven’t done my nails since summer but last week, I wanted to add a little shine and color to my nails. I chose Essie’s Shearling Darling nail polish and I think it’s the perfect holiday plum and hue. Picture taken during a date night with the hubby 🙂

One of my favorite things during the holidays are the time spent with friends and family. I love that everyone is in a good and jolly mood, everyone has a grateful heart and thankful attitude. The vibe is light and fun. I just love this time of the year because it brings people together. I […]

I can’t believe how fast this month is going. Part of the reason that I wanted to do December daily is to help me be in the moment, appreciate all the festivities and also to have a journal for this month. I would say that my intention is working….(except for the writing it down and […]

We put the lights up on our tree the night after we brought our tree home. If I really want to, I can finish the tree decorating in one night, but I’ve really enjoyed taking my time and having Hawke be a part of it. I know he won’t remember any of these, but I […]

december daily {2} – picking our tree

We avoided the rush this weekend and picked out our tree on Monday night instead. It seems a lot of people also wanted to do the same thing as the parking lot was full. We really want to make the most of our fresh tree, and knowing that the days in between Thanksgiving & Christmas […]

I would like to document the days leading up to Christmas. Ideally it will be some sort of a daily journal and it will be called my December Daily (#leasdecemberdaily on Instagram) A picture a day, a quote a day, whatever I fancy…the goal is to document something everyday for the whole month of December.
