This Time of Year


As much as I brand myself as "crazy Christmas girl," I absolutely love this time of year.  Knowing that we're standing on the threshold of the Christmas season, but still embracing the beauty of fall, just makes my heart smile.

Per usual, I cannot believe we've officially arrived at Thanksgiving week!  Turkey Day is my second favorite holiday because it's purely dedicated to the celebration of thankfulness and family.  And obviously eating too much and watching football :)

But in all seriousness, Thanksgiving is pretty awesome because it's not about presents and getting more; it's simply about being thankful.


This is also the time of year when I start thinking about our Christmas card.

Scratch that.  I probably started thinking about that in June, but that's neither here nor there.

A couple of weekends ago, a dear, talented friend took a few pictures for us, and I fell in love with all of them!  We went out to her husband's parents farm, which turned out to be the perfect setting.  I won't fill this post up with all of them, but I can't help but sharing a couple a few!

love this one
this sweet one has photo ready!

And finally, another fantastic aspect of this time of year (at least in my opinion) are the sports taking place.  I realize football, both college and professional, has been taking place for a few months, but college basketball has officially started, and that makes me a happy girl.  As I mentioned here, I've started writing for the Examiner, and would love for y'all to check out my articles.

Happy Monday (which is actually kind of like a Wednesday for most of us)!
