Christmas is Coming…

35 days until Christmas! Can you believe it?


I finally got around to removing the dead mums and pumpkins off my front porch. Swapping out oranges for reds and pumpkins for pinecones, I am so happy with our new winter porch! It’s such a cozy reminder of how close Christmas is!

 Pillows {World Market}, Coffee Mugs {Target}, Christmas Tree {Home Depot}

Oh, and our new wreath from Lynch Creek Farm has me giddy! Not only does it look like Christmas on our porch, it’s beginning to smell like it too! If you’re looking for the perfect housewarming, thank you, Christmas or birthday gift, check out the amazing wreaths the LCF has to offer. I usually buy several each season to send to friends and family!

 And speaking of Christmas, I have to share a sneak peek from our Christmas card shoot…

What an awesome afternoon! I got to hang with LRT for makeup & hair and Allison for our photo session. Lucky me!! These girls are rock stars!

Check out that Christmas collar on that handsome guy!
