Frame this Moment - Home for the Holidays πŸŽ„

Well, for the last Frame This Moment of the year, I thought our home at Christmastime was a perfect moment to capture. It really is our favorite place to be at our most favorite time of year, and sometimes I wish I could just bottle up all the coziness and merriness and sprinkle it through the rest of the year too.

Life Lately 12.12.23

Good morning!! Happy Tuesday!!! I hope everyone had the very best week and has been having a great start to their week! 

We had our small group over last night for our annual Christmas party and just had such a sweet time celebrating all that the Lord has done this year (and over the last four years!) We have another Christmas party at our house tonight for my Discipleship Group, a dinner on the calendar tomorrow night, Pierce's work Christmas party on Thursday night, and Pierce's parents come in on Friday! It definitely feels like Christmastime over here, and we are loving all the celebrations! But today, I just have a few pictures of Life Lately for you. A little from Thanksgiving, a little from life around town, and a little of just snapshots of our lots of ordinary moments that I'm so very grateful for. I hope you too are finding small joys in these busy days!! Here's a little look at Life Lately for you!

Friday Favorites - Christmas Blog Posts Edition πŸŽ„✨

Happy Friday!!! It's been a whirlwind of a week over here... Pierce and I are off to a sweet Christmas concert tonight that has become one our favorite little December traditions and then we are taking the weekend to rest and enjoy a few days at home without anything on the calendar. 

Next week has lined up for what feels like a Christmas extravaganza with Christmas parties, celebrations, and family coming in town at the end of the week, so this morning I am getting our house cleaned up, lighting my Christmas candle, and settling in for a sweet night, a cozy weekend, and a fun week ahead! 

Today I just have a few fun Christmas posts to share from last December. Lots of gift ideas if you're still looking for your favorites and just some holiday cheer for your Friday morning as well!! I hope everyone has a fun and special weekend, and I'll plan to see you back here next week!!

Jackson's Orchard 2023 πŸ‚πŸ

Happy Tuesday!!! Well, like I said, we are loving being in Christmas mode over here - I just don't think I will ever not love our house in greenery and lights with the fire on and blankets out... Give me a cup of hot tea and a Christmas movie, and I'm just about in heaven. But before I could transition all of my blog posts to Christmas too, I had to post one last family tradition that is a very favorite every October. Sweet Jackson's Orchard. I've been coming here since I was a little girl, and now we get to bring Jane and it makes the whole day even sweeter!!

Friday Favorites - Christmas Village Edition

Ok friends, it's just about my favorite weekend of the year!!! We are headed to one of my favorite places as the kick-off to one of my favorite seasons, and I just love it all so much! I think even Jane can sense the joy in the air this Friday Morning πŸŽ„✨🎁

This is about the time every year where Thanksgiving and Christmas all kind of blend together in my mind, and it truly just becomes the best time of the year. We LOVE Thanksgiving and the countdown to all the fall and fun and food and family that it holds, but we also love our home in all its Christmas cozy and lights, and when you put them both together it definitely makes us feel like we are right in the middle of "the holidays," which is exactly where I want to be!!

So really my Friday Favorites this week is dedicated to this favorite weekend of ours. ☺️ Bring on all the merriness!!! Hope your weekend is full of just the same!!!

The Riddick Home in the Fall

Happy Tuesday!! I thought today I'd welcome you into our home in the fall!! I love this sweet season - I love the feel of October, I love living with the windows open and the fireplace on and the sound of the leaves rustling outside. I love to have soups on the stove and amazing candles burning and cozying up with my favorite people.
