I'm so glad you are here. I'm Elizabeth and this is the blog. This is the space I tend to. The place I share my heart and our stories. I pack these pages full of tips, stories, adventures, travels, outfits, and recipes. It's a little bit of everything and a whole lot of me. My hope is that these words & photos would encourage & inspire you. That being here will brighten things at least a little bit. Please stick around & explore. There is something here for everyone!

Christmas Favorites

One of my favorite blogs is Treasures & Travels. I am constantly encouraged and inspired by that group of ladies! Their post on Christmas Favorites was so fun that Meg, Sam, and I decided to join in! We are all sharing our Christmas favorites today!! Be sure to let us know if you are inspired to share yours as well!


MOVIE
D – all of the above! This one is so hard because I love them all. The Santa Clause, Elf, and Muppet’s Christmas Carol are must watches every year!

DRINK
Eggnog. I love it so much that I wish it was in stores year round! Then again, I love the feeling of seeing it in the stores and knowing it is Christmas time – so I am fine with it!

ALBUM
Amy Grant Christmas. I am a girl of the 90’s!

BAKING
Cookies for my annual Christmas Cookie Exchange! I love to try something new every year!

TRADITION
I have a million traditions and I love them all. I think one of my favorite ones is that Bruce and I set a budget and do Christmas completely secretive. We don’t make lists, we don’t ask questions, we just get whatever we want for each other. This is totally opposite of birthdays – for those you just say what you want and buy it. It is a nice balance for us.

ORNAMENT
I love the 2 almost 3 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments that Bruce and I have started collecting. We get a new one each year that we pick out together. So far, we have a Harry Potter one, a Hobbit one, and this year is another Harry Potter one (but shhh… that is still under the tree!)

MEMORY
This is another hard one to choose! I have to go with the time my family spent Christmas in Disneyland! It was right after Bruce and I got married and it was a blast to be in Disney Christmas Eve and Christmas day! My whole family has dreamed of doing that one day so it truly was a dream come true. AND it snowed fake snow on main street on Christmas Eve and it was magical.

FOOD
Candy Canes. I really do love them.

SMELL
Christmas Tree! Or Yankee Candles that smell like Christmas Trees.


VERSE
I love the chapter in Isaiah about our King! It is so beautiful and whenever I read it, it makes my eyes glisten. 

Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

WHAT ARE YOUR CHRISTMAS FAVORITES?


PS: That beautiful ornament in the gif above is from Maiedae! Jenny is so talented and is making 2014 Christmas ornaments. You can learn more HERE
