  • Christmas for Two

    { 15 comments }

    For the last month or so I have been back and forth with my family about Christmas. I looked at flights to Florida and then my mom and grandmother talked briefly about flying up to Charlotte. Before we knew it, flight prices had quickly risen and were out of the budget. My dad and I [...]

  • A Very Southern Christmas

    Merry day after Christmas from me and my two beautiful, sweet girls! I hope everyone enjoyed a lovely day of loved ones and celebration. I traveled to my grandmother's house in Georgia on Christmas Eve with these two and a car full of gifts. It was...an experience...but we made it and that's all that matters. I arrived in [...]

  • 12 Days of Christmas Survey

    I am all about the holiday spirit this  year. I decorated my house the weekend after Thanksgiving and I've just been all lights, trees and celebration every since (although I am still not done with shopping...but that's pretty standard for me. I don't remember the last time I wasn't out on Christmas Eve wrapping up my shopping). I [...]

  • 2013 Christmas Love

    { 20 comments }

    Part two of Christmas is all about the love. Love for being at my grandmother's house like we have been almost every year for 30 years, love for having sweet children around and seeing their joy and excitement and love for having all of my family together in one place. Here are some of my [...]

  • Wrapping It Up

    Merry Christmas Eve! I'm headed to Georgia for Christmas with my family. The past few days have been a whirlwind of last minute shopping, baking, packing and wrapping. This was the scene in my living room last night as I tackled all the gifts that needed to be wrapped while I watched Elf. Sullie acted [...]

    Here is the continuation of the last post with a look at family, presents and dessert. We had a great time exchanging gifts. It's always so much more fun when there are little ones to buy for and play with! My grandmother is ridiculously talented at gift wrapping. She even does all of her own [...]

  • Christmas Dinner…Finally

    { 8 comments }

    Sullie and I finally made it home for Christmas yesterday. We arrived at my grandmother's house around 1:30 and I immediately got to work helping my dad with Christmas dinner. We fed 16 people last night! Despite all of the sickness (my dad, mom and nieces have all been really sick this week) and back [...]

  • Christmas…Postponed

    { 8 comments }

    My mom called on Saturday with news that my dad has the flu. We always have Christmas at my grandmother's house in Georgia but my parents didn't think it was the best thing to make my dad sit in the car for six hours and then bring his germs to family Christmas. So...Christmas is postponed [...]

    I'm a little late getting my Christmas recap up. Please forgive! I left my camera at my in law's last night and then slept until 9 this morning and spent a big chunk of time at the Y trying to get myself out of my sugar coma and back to normal. I'm just getting settled [...]

  • Christmas in Georgia

    It's been a wonderful Christmas day with my family! Stockings lining the stairs this morning when we woke up. There was even one for Sullie. My grandmother and I have been exchanging this gift bag for 10 YEARS! We take turns taking it home every year (although I have not been here for the last [...]

  • Christmas Is More Fun With Headstands

    We had Christmas with Brandon's family tonight because we're going to Georgia to visit my family this year. Somehow after present opening the girls ended up comparing flexibility and yoga moves. My mother and sister in law are both ridiculously flexible...it is crazy to me how some people are so naturally open (they do not [...]
