our christmas together.

luke & i usually celebrate christmas together on christmas eve eve. with a full week of traveling to see family during christmas, we really savor the time with just us two making our own memories & traditions as a little family.

as you know, i love making our home festive. it makes me happy & fills me up to decorate while making do with what we have. the wee stocking is our dogs' shared stocking. no wee one to announce, we promise.

the little wire carousel is filled with cards from loved ones near & far. my very favorite part of christmas for sure. the box of cards are ones i have saved from past years.

we usually celebrate our christmas with breakfast for two. luke made martha stewart's french toast with nine grain bread & a side of local bacon. 

little details from this year's gift wrappings. i added a wee bit more color than usual & added little handmade ornaments to clothespins (inspired by ashley!).

 & a couple of gifts were exchanged. our budget is always small, but we are able to make & give so much with what we do have. luke found this apron for me & i love it to say the least.

i had this farm sign made for luke. a little more than our budget allowed but the blessing of so many photo shoots this past autumn season made this possible. a full heart kind of day, indeed.

feeling blessed to have each other & this little farm. we are incredibly thankful for you, too. thank you for following along on our adventures! 

i will be back in a couple of days after a bit of traveling & merriment! until then... happy everything!
