Merry Christmas Eve y'all! I am so excited to be at home spending time with family this year, and I hope that you are having a wonderful time with your loved ones as well.

Before I left Nashville, I knew I wanted to have a holiday photo shoot in my office with my favorite photographer friend Zipporah of Zipporah Photography!

One of my favorite parts about Christmas? Wrapping up pretty gifts for friends and family!

Another one of my favorite things to do during the holidays? Writing heartfelt Christmas cards to send to those I haven't gotten the chance to see recently.

I also adore that extra little excuse to put on a little bit more sparkle than usual. My current favorite combination is my Shabby Apple teal wrap dress with my eye candy necklace, my somervell necklace, and my absolute favorite engravable bar necklace, which I have engraved with the date that Zack and I started dating!

Do you have a favorite holiday cocktail? I'd love to hear! I'm also excited to be sharing a recipe from my 2015 Cocktail Calendar with you right here on my blog on the first of each month. The first recipe is coming on January 1st, so make sure to stay tuned for it, it's a tasty one!

And of course, I had to have Zack jump into some of the pictures while he was in town! I know I'll cherish these for years to come.

I want to wish all of you the merriest of Christmases from the bottom of my heart! I hope that it is one filled with love, joy, lots of laughter, singing, too much eating, and remembrance of Jesus. Merry Christmas!
