🦌🌲🎅🏻This girl + the Christmas aisles at Target + her bright eyes & joy at every sight & sound we came across have been bottled up in my heart forever!!! When she saw this glitter reindeer purse I had absolutely no option but to buy it. It will most likely be on her shoulder all of the Christmas season. Inside she’s currently placed a shaker from music class, Target bullseye sticker, a spoon & small piece of paper (I imagine it’s her pretend credit card)! #allthatglitters
The ⛄️ sucker was stolen & Magnolia had a meltdown!!! With huge tears already flowing she yelled “NO NO NO” when her daddy took it from the pup’s mouth and directly to the trash can. Luckily we had a ❄️ sucker in the pantry to calm her sad little heart.
A special afternoon here👼🏼 I had Magnolia laying on our bed as I got her in the sleep sack & ready for naptime. The room was dim with the sound machine humming in the background. She started to point up to the white ceiling & said looook! I asked what, mommy's chandelier? even though her eyes weren't really focused on it. I was just about to move on with getting her ready for her nap when she continued to point and look up saying clear as day baby, baby! I just stopped what I was doing & watched her looking up smiling at a baby! Of course my mind immediately thought of the baby we lost in April, the baby I think about every single day!!! When we lose a loved one, others will bring comfort with the reminder that they'll always be with us & you know what, I believe that with all my heart & soul. I also believe babies have a special innocence & connection to the angels 👼🏼, the ones we as adults cannot see, but certainly feel all around us.
If she’s not shushing her babies to sleep then she’s walking around the house in my slippers pretending to cook!!! #myminime #lovesosweet
I took this photo this morning as I was folding laundry because it was really calm & pretty in the house. Much calmer than yesterday morning! Little did I know that Valentine 🐩 wasn’t chewing on her bone BUT a glass ornament instead!!!! Calm turned to panic fast. I had no idea a puppy would chew on glass!?!? 🤦🏻♀️ What the heck!!!
🧚🏼♀️My sugar plum fairy helped me decorate our fake 🌲 tree this weekend!!! We really wanted to do a real one, but with a toddler + puppy we knew we couldn't. I went on the hunt for the most real looking fake tree I could find & we're in love with the one we found on Amazon. I've had lots of questions about it & I linked it on today’s blog post. It was sold out all weekend, but it's back in stock right now!!!! #thebesttimeoftheyear
I snuck out of bed before Magnolia & Ry just so I could have coffee & quiet time to read my Magnolia magazine by the twinkling lights!!! 🌲☕️ That cinnamon & fir candle I shared in my stories is burning & it’s feeling very festive around here!!! #besttimeoftheyear
She helped me hang every single ornament!!! 🌲 Ryan put the hooks on each one, then she brought it to me, & we found its spot on the tree. What if she remembers this Christmas!?! I sure hope this holiday season lights the magic 💫 in her heart that lasts forever. #themagicofchristmas
🌲The BEST time of the year is here!!!! Holiday jams on Alexa, the furnace cranked up high, coffee in hand & my little babe is helping me decorate. As I vacuum & dust she’s running around with Christmas ornaments leaving a little glitter everywhere she goes!!! I think that’s a Kate Spade quote.......& it’s 100% Magnolia. ‘Tis the season for messes that sparkle & all things bright!!! #christmascheer
