Day Thirty: Your Winter Wonderland


This ice was about the extent of our winter wonderland. It snowed barely once. Silly Tennessee weather.

Day Twenty-Eight: Words


The most delicious words.

Day Twenty-Seven: Night Time


This is the best I could do. I was sick.

Day Twenty-Five: Christmas Morning

Snow? No.

This morning I got extremely excited to see that my weather app said it was snowing. Then it refreshed and said it was just overcast. As I went to let the dogs out I glimpsed flurries out the kitchen window. I'm glad I snapped a photo because it stopped as soon as it started. Hoping it actually snows tomorrow for Christmas.


Day Twenty-Four: Favorite Part of Christmas Eve


Derek's reaction to the gift I got him. He loved it. I was really glad.

Early Christmas Present!

After his evening bath Derek surprised me by saying that I could open one of my gifts tonight. We planned on opening them tomorrow night because we're hosting his family on Christmas morning. Not one to say no to a gift, I eagerly waited while he picked the one he wanted me to open. 




I adore it. Such a lovely gift! I don't want to take it off!!

Day Twenty-Three: Scarf


I made this scarf for myself a few years ago. It's the only one I ever made and kept for myself.

Day Twenty-Two: Tradition


I’m starting a new tradition of taking a crazy faced picture of myself in front of the Christmas tree. Year one, down!

Day Nineteen: Candy Cane


Had to bribe the dog and she's too interested in her bribe to even be a part of this photo. Candy cane font cause I don't get candy canes. I never eat them.

Day Sixteen: Outside Christmas Lights



Hard to tell but these are our lights that face out. We didn’t put any lights up outside. Too much work for my hard workin’ husband.

Day Fifteen: Favorite Holiday Song


Pretty much every song here. I love Bing Crosby's voice.

Day Fourteen: Christmas Tree


The star is crooked but it literally will not stay straight so I've given up.

Day Twelve: A Beautiful Sight


To Kill A Mockingbird, Christmas decorations, and a puppy snuggled at my feet -- there can't be a more beautiful sight in my eyes.

Day Nine: Something You're Reading


I recently ordered a copy of To Kill A Mockingbird from Amazon. It was my favorite book from required reading in high school. It came a few days ago. I'm really excited to snuggle in for the night with some hot chocolate and enjoy the layers of this classic story.

Day Eight: Ornament(s)



My husband and I have collected an ornament for each year we've been together. This was our first.


It has a lot of sentimental value for me.


In 2010, we bought our first Hallmark ornament. I adore this one so much.


In 2011, we got married. This ornament seemed incredibly fitting. 


Last year we didn't have time to pick a special ornament with Derek's job being very busy. Instead we were gifted this by Mimi, Derek's grandmother. 


This year we chose an ornament to honor our loving pets, past and present.


All the ornaments on and around the mini tree.

This dog is the brightest star in my sky ♥ I love her so much and she’ll do anything for a cookie… including wear reindeer antlers :)

Day Two: Favorite Holiday Movie


National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation has been my favorite Christmas movie since I was a kid. I watch it multiple times every December. It puts me in a great mood.
