I am so excited that you're here! This is where I share my latest sessions, personal photos, and funny life stories. You'll quickly hear about my obsessive cleaning habits, my adorable pup, and probably a little something about fruit pizza (only the best food ever created). So grab a drink (something iced for me... yes, even in the winter), and scroll through the archives!

The Holiday Season

I’m still a little bit in shock that it’s actually December! That is just absolutely ridiculous. I am not complaining though, because there are SO many fun things in store this month! Busch Gardens with the whole family, Chris’s birthday, lots of food, and of course, Christmas!

This past Sunday, we went to Ostlund and got our Christmas tree! There is a severe lack of good trees this year (seriously, there was even an article written about it!), which was especially unfortunate because we needed an extra large tree for the new house! Mom and Joelle actually went to the tree farm last week and tagged the biggest and best looking tree they had. And it’s a good thing too, because it was the very last tall tree.

Then on Monday we had our annual Christmas Cookie Baking Day! Everyone was there. We made so many trays and boxes of cookies! It was such a long day, but totally worth it. This is the most joyful time of year <3

We could’ve gone a few feet taller with the tree, but there were none anywhere close! I think this may be the last year we have a real tree, which surprisingly, we’re all fine with!


I love love love those Christmas gnomes that watch over us, hahaha.


This is the first year that we’ve EVER strung popcorn for the tree, but we love it!! It was so easy, and it looks so classy.


A very very small portion of all the cookies we made ;)
