I am so excited to finally be sharing these photos that I shot with the talented ladies of LC Photography late in the Fall.  If you are local to Utah, you should definitely check them out.  Not only are they amazing at what they do, but they are really fun to work with.  And if you are ever in need of a floral crown (and rest assured, EVERY girl should own one-trust me), also be sure to check out my friend Stevi’s Etsy store.  She truly makes the most incredible things and is equally as wonderful to work with!

Merry Merry

Merry Christmas Eve, sweet friends.  I just wanted to take a minute away from the hustle and bustle of all of the craziness and wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas.

I have also been thinking a lot this Christmas season, that while it truly is the most wonderful time of the year for many, for equally as many, it can truly be one of the toughest times of the year.  So I would challenge you all that as you are out and about running last-minute errands today, to follow through on those little acts of kindness that tug at our heart-strings but are so easy ignore the busier we are.

If you think something nice about a stranger you see, tell them.  Open or hold a door for someone.  Don’t be impatient with the sales clerk checking you out.  Smile and say “hello” or “Merry Christmas”  to people you pass.  Buy a drink for someone at Starbucks.  Help a little old lady with her groceries.  Tell your family and friends how much you love and appreciate them. No matter how big or how small, YOU have the ability to really make a difference for someone who is hurting this holiday season and be a light for all to see the true meaning of Christmas.  I love you all so much and am so grateful for all of your support this year.  Thank YOU so much for following along with me on this journey.

Holiday Glam

This gold skirt was one of my very favorite purchases last year, and it’s still one of my favorite things in my closet this year too.  It really is the perfect choice for a Christmas or NYE party, and you can style it so many different ways throughout the year too!  So if you’re still on the hunt for something fun and festive to wear this week or next, I’ve linked several similar options below.
