this exquisite tree with so many ornaments you can barely see the branches
and it’s even ombre!
the cutest photo-bomber in history – and bright blue doors with a gigantic wreath
playing tourist with family and making friends with Mildred the moose
flights being on time, no luggage lost, and breathtaking mountain views while in the air
all natural and tasteful (ha) holiday decorations
spending time with my parents – I have missed them!
seeing the trees sparkle at night
hoods with fur trim and matching Carolina blue beanie hats for skiing
pizza and beer at a downtown restaurant followed by a movie with the family
visiting Temple Square for the first time and hearing home alone songs on the organ
finding the perfect calf-hair cheetah pumps
being at “home home” in Starkville and addressing Christmas cards while watching Christmas movies
the first day of wedding festivities of one of my best friends (practically sisters) starting today
I am writing this post from my “home home” in Starkville! It’s been far too long since I visited. My mom and I flew in today from Deer Valley and are leaving in the morning to start celebrating Haley Crosby and Rob Carpenter! whoop whoop! A Christmas wedding is going to be so much fun and magical and I can’t wait to celebrate these people that mean so much to me!
Coming to Starkville was really important to me this year because my parents are putting our house up for sale – Que the violens, record scratch, and put 10 of the hysterically crying emojis right *here*. I know it’s just a house… really, I do. But it’s where I spent year 5 to year now and I guess it’s hard to imagine not being able to walk in the back door whenever I want to. Have your parents sold your childhood home? Did you take it well?
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for reading!
