Celebrations and Outings.

Oh December how I love you.
An entire month dedicated to the holidays, family and friends, and the birth of a child.
A month to reflect on our blessings and look forward to the coming year. A month where hustle and bustle combine with sacred traditions, resulting in the perfect combination of festivities and cozy nights in.
My heart is happy during December.
Annual Bake Off weekend with my best girls. Crafting, eating, baking, catching up, Christmas pj' is one of my most favorite weekends of the entire year.

Baking cookies.
The "cheese" face is in full effect these days.
Holiday party with The Annuity Source team. How fortunate I am to spend my days with these ladies (though I am REALLY enjoying being off for maternity leave!)
Swimming lessons.
Downtown Seattle night enjoying the lights, the caroling and the carousel.

Visiting Santa. A fan in theory, but when she actually has to be near him...not so much.

Family holiday celebrations.
With such a large family and extended family, we decided this year to gather early in the month to make sure that we had a chance to all be together.

Merry Monday friends. Hope that your celebrations are bringing you hope this holiday season.
