Au revoir December

Did anyone else feel like December was a magical month?

Thanksgiving was a blast & I felt like everyday after was filled with the holiday spirit!

I love that part of my husband business is to hang Christmas lights. I was able to go with him & see a couple client’s houses & even took some photos for his website.

Lets talk about the snow ♥

Last year we hardly got any in the valley but this year it hit! It hit so hard that the first day of snow I wasn’t even able to drive to work.

Even though I’ll never be a huge fan of then cold, but the snow is absolutely gorgeous!

I’ve grown to love winter.

Shane has made winter 100% more exciting than it’s ever been.

Last year was full of amazing skiing up at Park City, & this winter season we’ve gone ice skating, built a giant snow tower in our back yard, drove around looking at Christmas lights, drank more hot chocolate than you can imagine & Tim Tammed Slammed til we passed out.

Christmas shopping was a blast (crazy right?). I felt like our second Christmas together was even better than the first.

Last Christmas spent together was amazing, but this year we actually had money set aside that we could spend.

We finally had a tree to decorate, Christmas decor, & stockings! I loved decorating for Christmas. I felt like I had an entire year to plan out things that Shane would want for Christmas, we were both spoiled with presents.

The spirit of giving has always been in my heart. I love to give! I love seeing others happy, it brings me so much joy. I guess that is what the holiday season is really about right? I hope that everyone was able to give, even just a little bit.

Acts of kindness never go unnoticed


Positive Vibes List #2


Tis the season for colds, sweats & tissues!

Shane & I both had our rounds of getting sick this winter season BUT there’s always a bright side when you are stuck in bed! So I decided to cure my sickness with a little bit of positive-ness…

1. Husbands– This could probably be listed every time but you can’t help but smile when you’re sick & you having a loving person there to take care of you (plus put up the Christmas Lights!!)

2. Soft Tissue– A comfy tissue is everything, please love yourself enough to go buy a brand that isn’t going to leave you looking like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

3. Sherlock Holmes TV series/Netflix– So I can say I’m definitely grateful for TV shows! Not recommended to watch a Sherlock  episode while you’re only half awake and drugged on Nyquil but definitely worth while you’re recuperating. We became obsessed.

4. Hot Chocolate– It’s warm & it’s chocolate so it makes the list ok? I could stop here but I won’t….ever tried Trader Joe’s Sipping Chocolate? Thank me later.

5. Music– Always helps me sleep, read, draw & you can’t really beat Christmas Music when outside is a Winter Wonderland, it’s so magical

6. Tortilla Soup– Need I say more? (Thank you Cafe Rio!!)

I don’t think I’m alone with being sick this month, what are you grateful for when you’re sick?
