Merry & Bright

I'm so excited to share Harper's Christmas List with you! We have lots of ideas on how to make her first Christmas extra special! Mostly with fun activities & traditions, but buying for a baby is so much fun! Here is just a snippet of some of the things that will be under Harper's Christmas Tree this year!



 We have been having a blast lately planning for all of the fun Holiday activities to come. I have lots of ideas that I will be posting soon, fun things to do with your babe or as a family. Little Baby Garvin will be going into full 25 Days of Christmas mode in just a few short weeks!

Two weeks ago we got our family pictures taken by the very talented Natalie Shivers here in Atlanta. We just love them! Notice once again, Harper & I matching in our neon violet? She is totally going to hate me one day for all this nonesnse.

Her little smirk here melts my heart. 


 We were so excited to spot this vintage, green couch sitting outside of a local coffee shop! My husband was having panic attacks about Harper touching it.


 And I'm sure it goes without saying why this is one of our favorite pictures ever! I don't know which I love more, her eyes or her eyebrows! :)


 Before I go, I have to just thank you all so so much for all of the great feedback about offering chalkboard prints!! It is so encouraging and makes me so happy that you all would love to see them! Cannot wait to show you what is in store!

  2. Beautiful family photos. I will admit I have already finished my Christmas shopping for everyone EXCEPT Matthew & my man. I've been picking up little things here & there. Love coming across suggestions & ideas though. I'm really digging that little car, Matthew will only be 5 months, but he has got to be into toys soon right? lol. I keep forgetting you live here in GA too!! Maybe we will see each other while shopping one day!! haha.

  3. It's nice to see someone else as obsessed with the holidays as I am. I'm so excited for all the fun activities and celebrations with my daughter this year. Last year she had just come home from the NICU and was very fragile so this year she can actually enjoy it.

  4. What a beautiful family you have! I thoroughly enjoy reading each and every one of your blogs. You have actually inspired me to do the same so that my daughter, husband, and I have it to look back on for fun and remembrance. Keep them coming : )

  9. I absolutely love these photos! I was the girl who commented on your photo on instagram about your hubby looking like the police officer from the show scandal. The police officer's name is David Rosen, I think you said people have said that. I was watching the show when you're post showed up, I fully stand by my statement!
    Love your blog so much, and when you do make those chalkboard prints available, I will be one of the first to buy!! =]

  22. Oooooh, YES! Thank you for this post! The grandparents are asking what our daughter Ruby wants for Christmas (she's a couple months younger than Harper), and I didn't know where to start. Don't mind if I take some inspiration from your list! We have that little pink car, I should get it out for her to play with!

    Also, thanks for reminding me that we need to take family photos.

    And also, totally agree with the previous poster that your husband looks like Gary Sinise. =)
