We've been busy since my last post! Busy = good! Busy = moving forward. :)
We started our new journey with our first holiday gathering in our new home! In year's past, it's been quite busy with ranch responsibilities around this time of year and so, we were never really able to "get into" the holidays.
Our house was full of family, (food) and a lot to be thankful for on Thanksgiving day.
We met our Kentucky friends while on a vacation in Mexico a few years ago. We traveled to Mexico together the next year and were really good about keeping in touch throughout the year and across the miles. They brought a precious baby into the world this year, so they had to pass on our annual Mexico trip, but Jesse and I decided to take Mexico to them! While we didn't greet them with sombreros and maracas, we sure did have a wonderful trip visiting the nearby tourist attractions including the Maker's Mark Distillery. We enjoyed their favorite places to shop; one place was called, Heartstrings and it blew my mind away! We had lunch at Chaney's Diary Barn and had dinner at a new spot named, Fetta Specialty Pizza.
Young Love Decor shop on Etsy and I forced her to let me lend a hand on a few orders.
The wreath presence in the south is insane. Wreaths on cars, wreaths on doors, wreaths in every window, wreaths on wreaths. I fell in love with these and it's safe to say I have a new obsession; came home and made myself a wreath.
We got back from Kentucky with about two weeks to prepare for our first Annual Holiday Gathering.
Our holiday party was complete with cookies, conversation and games! I probably sound a little biased when I say it was a blast, but really...I think it was!
|Kleenex and Oreo Minute-To-Win-It Games were a blast. I also threw in a Christmas Quiz.|
From my corner of the blogosphere to yours - I hope you had the merriest of Christmas days and have a safe and fun new year celebration in store!
