Tis the Season!

Hey friends! Its December….how is it already December? This year has flown by and more than that…this fall has flown by. I feel like I’ve been away from internet civilization for the last few months because we have been super busy with fall weddings and portrait sessions to prep for Christmas cards and holiday print orders…and I have missed you guys! I am ready for rest friends. I’m so ready for rest. I’m ready for time with my kids without my face glued to my computer and I’m ready to lay on the couch with my husband watching Christmas movies and falling asleep at night at the SAME time. I’m ready for more stories of Jesus’ birth and I’m ready to celebrate this season!

A little while back I met for coffee with a friend, Leigh,  who was starting a new business adventure with a concept I love. She is a fantastic personal shopper and has put her talent and time into a new business that I absolutely adore! The bottom line is that you pick the person-occassion-budget, and Leigh will put together the perfect gift based on a questionnaire and personal interest statement about the receiver of the gift. Easy peasy and you get the perfect gift every time! Leigh has such a generous and kind spirit and she has graciously put together a super fun basket for us to give away! I love giving gifts and I think you guys will adore all that is in this box. So….a big huge THANK YOU to Leigh at UnderWraps for letting me start this season by gifting you all with something beautiful and fun. To enter, comment on this post and one winner will be selected at random on Sunday,  December 13th at 9:00pm. Here is a little information from Leigh about everything included in your Holiday Giveaway Box!
