Same as my 2015 post, it doesn’t quite feel like the holidays down south. We did get into the 40s here and even felt some frost (yay!) but nothing like my northerners getting inches of snow. I can’t freakin wait.

Luke and I leave tomorrow for a 2-week stay in Indiana visiting our families and friends. I’ll also have the joy and excitement shooting a friend’s wedding on December 17th, my last of the season!

And while this season is more for seeing our nieces and nephews, and our pup experiencing snow for the first time, I wanted to share some ideas I had for gifts to share with the loved ones in your life as well.

Merry Christmas to each of you! So grateful for you all. xo



1. Waxed canvas laptop sleeve from Winter Session (really anything from this company) | 2. Rosegold + cognac watch from Horse. For the dressy days but still classic. | 3.
