Blogmas {2019} Day 2| My Favorite family Tradition

Hey friends!

Happy blogmas day 2! Today I’m going to share with y’all my favorite family Christmas tradition, which is picking out the Christmas tree.

This is one of the few things that we do together as a family. The first week of December we pick a family own Christmas tree lot to buy our tree. This is another way for giving back to our community. I think it’s so important to support small family own businesses.

Their family offered us cookies and we sat beside their cozy firepit sharing or life stories. It was so nice to be able to learn about other people.

Later on that night Ken brought the tree up and we screwed the tree into the tree base. I absolutely love the smell of a fresh Christmas tree.

Tripp and Ken were having a good time wrestling on the floor after the tree was put up. These are these the type of memories that I like to keep in my heart forever.

Tripp was so sweet and vacuum up all the pine needles up for his Mama.

Yesterday was beautiful! I shared with y’all my favorite Christmas family tradition now its time to share yours. Leave a comment down below and tell me what your favorite family traditions are.

Blogmas {2019} Day 1| My Christmas Coffee & Tea Station

Happy blogmas day 1 friends!

I thought we will start blogmas out my sharing my Christmas/ winter themed coffee and tea bar. I’m a huge hot tea drink all year long, however in the winter months coffee seems to always be a top choice of beveragein the mornings. My favorite drink to make is a hot White Chocolate Mocha, I’ll have to share ther recipe with y’all soon.

I absolutely LOVE the way my little bakers rack turned out this year. The only new items that I bought were the mini flock trees ($3 each at Target). Everything else I shop my own Christmas decorations and home to pull this look together.

I’m very into traditional red, white, green, gold Christmas colors. The tray behind my Rae Dunn pieces was from the At Home store a couple years ago. I recorded a vlog this morning talking a little bit more detailed about my set if you are interested in watching.

I hope y’all enjoyed my blogmas post for today. Let me know what’s your favorite Holiday drink. I’m always up to try something new.
