Guess What Was Under The Tree!!

Yep, the sunglasses I was wishing for. 


I was ultra spoiled this year, and I hope you were too.  We spent the holiday with my family up in Kentucky and Indiana, was so lovely.  We even got snow on Christmas Eve.  It was so magical to watch it fall.  Next time I will be better prepared and have a snowsuit to throw on Lilly so she can truly enjoy it! 

While we were in Kentucky we stayed at my Dad's home, which is incredibly gorgeous and surrounded by beautiful rolling hills.  I staked out this little barn for a rustic photo-op.  I think it's so cool.


Perhaps you can tell that my husband wasn't feeling the photo session, ha!  Perhaps if he would dress a little more appropriately for the weather...  Next time I suppose.

Anyway, we got back to Charleston this evening and it feels so good to be home.  I will say I'm a little daunted by what all needs to be done (unpacking, taking down Christmas decor...).  Why is it that it's never as joyful to take down the decorations as it is to put them up?!  I know I'm not the first to feel this way.

And I hear you about the daunting tasks at hand- I did the cleaning but haven't takled the take down..not excited about the work- I have such a long list of decor things I'd rather be doing so we shall see. Welcome home my dear! xoxo

Gorgeous sunglasses ... It sounds like you had a fabulous Christmas. I feel the same way about taking down the Christmas decor. Dreading it ...

Dear Chassity,

take it easy - look through your glasses (they are so noble!!) and think by yourself: ok, now I take down the Christmas decoration, but soon comes Easter..... :-))

Love Hugs

Sounds like a wonderful Christmas! I'm right there with you though...Christmas decorations staring me in the face, and the boxes they go in all piled in the garage! But it was worth it :)

The sunglasses are so chic! And I say enjoy the Christmas decorations a few more days :) New Year's Day is perfect for packing up. Good luck!
