Home for the Holidays


Finals are finally over, so I got a chance to photograph a few parts of our little home decorated for the holidays. We don’t have a ton of Christmas decor (yet) but we made the most of our little Christmas treasures and a bit of fresh greenery. I look forward to collecting many antique bottle brush trees, Shiny Brite ornaments, and Putz cardboard houses in the years to come. The ornaments in the tray on the coffee table are Christopher Radio remakes of Shiny Brite ornaments that I absolutely love! I hope you enjoy a look into our home with a few guest appearances by our friend #watpott!




We spent the Thanksgiving holiday back in our hometown, Tyler, with both our wonderful families. We ate entirely too much, watched a lot of football, and played many rounds of hide-and-seek with my nephews. Unfortunately, it was the most dreary weather all but one day, but we still made the best of it.


It was also our basset hound Watson’s (instafamous: #watpott) 3rd birthday. Can’t forget those important celebrations! He even had a birthday cake hat to wear.


We did not end up having a Friendsgiving like I had hoped. Too much going on with too little time! To compromise, we have started decorating for Christmas, including getting our Christmas tree (a week before Thanksgiving). I hope to take some pictures after medical school finals are over of the house decorated for the holidays this year. December 18th, I am coming for you!
