This last week has been filled with travel, Christmas-ing, family, and lots of love. Here are some of instagrams of the last week:


 I got some seriously amazing gifts this year. I felt completely spoiled what with two Christmases and then Ty's lovely gifts he got me as well. We spent Christmas and the few days leading up to it at my in-laws in Alabama and then came back up for Christmas with my family.

My Christmas-ing was also filled with loads of goodies and foods (probably a bit too much) and I had the best time making sugar cookies and icing them with my family.

By far the best thing about this lovely holiday season is that it is my first being married. This year has had many ups and downs, adventures, and exciting what nots, and I'm so very blessed to have an amazing man by my side. I can't wait to ring in the new year and see what new adventures it will bring for us.

I hope you all have had an amazing holiday season and that the new year will bring you many blessings.



  1. wow!!!! I love these holiday pictures. I think this is the first one I see of you and your hubby together! Lovely. How is that Dita "Art Deco" make-up??? Do you recommend it? I hope you had a wonderful holiday and I hope the New Year brings you lots of joy and wonderful beginnings.

  2. So many wonderful gifts and how special to have your first holiday season together as a married couple. You two are adorable! Have a very happy New Year!

  3. So heartwarmingly sweet! I remember our first Christmas as a married like it was just yesterday (it was, in fact, eight years ago and was also our very first Christmas, period, as we had quite a whirlwind romance and married about seven months after we first met), and always smile when I look back on it.

    May you both have an incredibly lovely 2013 filled with countless blessing and reasons to smile,

  7. Wow you did get a good loot! Ha ha my main Christmas present included a pram... gone are the days where I get presents for myself I think! Does it actually snow at Christmas time where you are? I'm always so confused in America with who gets what kind of weather. Oh and how exciting to have your first 'married' Christmas! xx
