Merry Christmas!

Happy day before Christmas Eve! How cute is this picture? Toby isn't the most cooperative for the camera (obviously) but I thought he looked so cute in his candy cane collar!

As excited as I am for Christmas, it's all just happening way too fast. I CAN tell you that we are going to be one of those couples that keeps the tree up well past New Year's! I refuse to take it down.

Today I'm just going to be baking blueberry muffins because my aunt and cousin are so wonderful and will be bringing a bunch of baked goods to families at the Children's Hospital on Christmas Eve morning! Thursday night we'll be eating dinner at the National Harbor like I mentioned before and then Christmas day we'll be doing brunch at my aunt's house. Very excited for quality family time.

Anyway--I hope you all have a blessed Christmas and stay safe if you're traveling! I'll be back to posting on Monday!


  1. Merry Christmas, Kelly! Hope you have a wonderful holiday. It's so great that you're bringing a little holiday cheer to the Children's hospital!

  6. Love this simple post! Firstly, that collar is adorable and so is your dog. Secondly, do people really take their tree down after new year's?? We keep it as long as it stays alive, haha! Lastly, love the good you're doing for those in need during this wonderful time of year.

    Have a merry christmas, Kelly :)

  24. This is so nice, I wish I could do something like that, but I am scissor-challenged, couldn't cut anything in a straight line if my life depended on it. And I also suck at wrapping things. But if I received something like that as a present, I probably wouldn't open it because it looked so nice haha.Super merch
