Coffee Talk Mondays

I hope you had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!!! Can you believe we are just TWO days away from December? Where did the year go? Regardless, it’s the most magical time of the year, and I’m excited to celebrate this season with family and friends! šŸ™‚ December is going to be a crazy month between a new big project, Christmas Mini Sessions in Virginia, a friend’s wedding, Jack’s first Birthday, and obviously … CHRISTMAS! By the time we are done traveling, we will be ready to settle down for the winter season. šŸ™‚ Before then, let’s catch up from this past week!!!

COFFEE TALK

MOCHA MOMENTS
THE SWEETER MEMORIES FROM THIS PAST WEEK

1
THANKSGIVING IN WYOMING

We travelled 6.5+ hours to visit Alex’s grandparents in Wyoming this past weekend! It was so wonderful spending Thanksgiving with family this year, especially after the shut down last year! Jack enjoyed spending his first Thanksgiving with his great-grandparents. So special!! He got to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast, see deer up close, bundle up in snow gear, hunt for a Christmas tree in the woods, and so much more! Now we are all stuffed like a Thanksgiving turkey!

CHRISTMAS SEASON!!!!

So after going back and forth about when to decorate for Christmas, I convinced Alex to decorate a week early. šŸ™‚ I’m SO glad we did because the last thing we wanted to do after a 6.5+ hour drive is decorate! Instead, we were able to take yesterday to settle in after our road trip and actually clean up our garage… Anyone who has a garage knows it’s a big undertaking to organize and straighten it up, especially after a move! šŸ™‚ When we decorated our home for Christmas, we also got to take family photos for our Christmas card and Jack got to meet Santa! SO CUTE!!! All thanks to our AMAZING realtor, The Lana Rodriguez Group!!! I’m sure next year will be a different story sitting in a stranger’s lap. HA!
