Small Business Saturday.

We got our tree this morning.

It’s 70 degrees out and Ashlyn is wearing shorts.

It doesn’t feel right.

But it had to be done.

Mostly because my Raising Up Rubies mason jar garland banner arrived.

I don’t know that I’ve ever seen anything cuter.

And I need to decorate today or Christmas will be ruined.

Kim took our Christmas card pictures yesterday.

Safe to say Lincoln didn’t make the cut this year.


Katy is designing our cards again.

She and Lindsay have opened a special Christmas card shop.

Sheer collaborative creative genius.

15% off today until 8 PM.

Hope Church has a Ladies Tea and Ornament Exchange in 2 weeks.

And it’s my most favorite event of the year.

Linnea Ruth made this for me.

And I want to keep it.

Or accidently lose it the day of.

By hanging it on our tree, way in the back and out of sight.

But that wouldn’t be nice.

Needle point rockstar she is.

I think it’s needle point?

See this is why I order.


I have my phone alarm set for 4 pm.

My friend Julie is selling perfectly adorable holiday garlands today.

Instagram only.

Follow her shop for details.

It’s Small Business Saturday, you guys.

Be sure to check out these little, sweet shops.

They are moms like me.

Using their talents to help support their families.

And they are my friends.

Happy last day of November.

Christmastime is here.

    If I don’t get that hope ornament I am never coming to the ornament exchange again.

    Just kidding. It’s my fav event all year. No joke.

    I totally have to figure out what we are doing for Christmas cards this year and now that December is finally here (tomorrow) I can’t wait to begin! Thanks for being such an inspiring friend!
