1st Christmas on Camberley Court

  • Christmas Decor Inspiration

better late than never, right?! We have been decorating our home for Christmas sporadically throughout the month and I FINALLY took some time to photograph it this morning! Decorating for Christmas has been quite a process… a FUN process in my opinion but Michael may have a different take on it! :) I’m just kidding, Michael is such a trooper. When I say “Ya know, I think we need some more twigs here”…. he goes with me to the mall and we make a date night out of a quick “twig” run. It’s a win-win! He knows that I really enjoy decorating and while he does have some veto power, most of the time he lets me do whatever ideas pop into my head!!

A Family Trip to the Big Apple | 2013

  • Christmas in NYC

while we were visiting my sister in PA, we sat in her apartment around 10:00 at night and her boyfriend (now fiance!) said “Hey! Lets do something crazy and drive to NYC just for the heck of it!” While I appreciated his enthusiasm, I knew that wouldn’t happen that night. We were tired and a spur of the moment NYC run wasn’t going to take place BUT it did start the conversation about how we should make an NYC trip happen sometime!! At Thanksgiving we casually talked about going up to New York for a quick weekend trip but nothing was set in stone.

  • Ricky + Corbin | Engaged

not going to believe this but I have yet another couple from ALASKA to introduce you to today! I think these are subconscious hints that we should visit this wonderful state sometime soon! :) I’m so excited to introduce you to this sweet couple! Ricky and Corbin are currently living in Anchorage but I know Corbin and her family from our home church. We love the Wagners and let me tell you, we are so SO excited to be a part of this wonderful wedding!! I loved getting a chance to spend a couple of hours with Ricky and Corbin this past week while they were home for their holiday visit.
