These are a Few of My Favorite Things

As the song goes, here are a few of my favorite things about the holidays this year...

A much coveted sign I have loved forever was a Christmas gift this year.

Brown paper packages tied up with string. (And cute felt owls)

The cutest chicken wrap from my sister in law. Saved the paper and the bow.

My crazy husband home for two weeks and photobombing a selfie the kid and I were taking,

Our New Year's Eve party. I know I have talked about it enough but it was so fun to prepare, dress up and dancing the New Year in. I have set my mind to live life more fully this year. More about that later but it was such a great party. 

The warmth of these perfect days. We really need rain badly but if you are gonna give me a crystal clear day of 80 degrees and blue skies, I am gonna where my shorts and hang out with the chickens.

And YOU!! Thanks so much for coming by and visiting. Love ya!!!


  1. I love the fresh eggs sign and that paper was very cute I would be saving that. Cute photo lol

  2. Absolutely love that precious paper wrapping and family photo bomb. One day I am sure we will appreciate all those unplanned bombs more than many of our staged shots :]

  3. Beautiful post ... I would have saved the chicken paper and bow too ! :)

  4. Beautiful post ... I would have saved the chicken paper and bow too ! :)

  11. Love the sign! I could do with some 80 degree weather right now. It's so cold here.
