MERRY CHRISTMAS

I have to say I’m so very excited to have my guys featuring on the blog, they are so darn cute. This year would be our first year doing Christmas cards and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to do one, they are amazing and so fun! I had the pleasure of picking out our outfits and dressing the boys, I really wanted to have a little bow tie for Dierksy boy but that never happened impossible to find one that’s plaid. We shot these at the Brickworks in Toronto, the day previous to our shoot was such a beautiful day so I was hoping the weather would have stayed the same but unfortunately it ended up raining, so we tried to do the best we can with the slight rain. The only difficult thing was getting these guys to relax and not be so tense for the photos, it was very hilarious and we couldn't stop laughing at them, they are troopers. I'll have a little preview of our cards soon, I plan on keeping all the cards throughout the years it would be great looking back at them all and seeing all the changes through the years, so far christmas cards get a thumbs up from this girl!

For the outfits I tried to have us all matching with the plaid, because when I think of Christmas I think of plaid (haha)! Once we got the outfits I thought maybe plaid would have been too much if all of us have it on, so I thought of keeping it plain with light coloured chinos for pants and later on added sweaters, just loved the contrast of how it all looked together with the colours (not bad for a first timer?) haha. I'm really itching to see what my Husbands going to come up with next year, I warn you he is very brilliant and meticulous, looking forward to it! Merry Christmas Ladies, hope you have a wonderful time with all of your loved ones.

I know christmas is a difficult time for some, to those that struggle through this season, I'm keeping you in my prayers, my hearts with you.

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
 

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

TREE FARM

 

Happy Monday, I was just out this morning and I couldn’t believe the weather we are having in December in Toronto. I went out this morning to the off leash; taking Dierk’s out and I stopped and said wow, its beautiful outside. My only wish is that we get a little bit of snow when Christmas rolls around, there’s nothing like a wintery white Christmas and it’s a must! A week ago the hubs and I decided to go to a tree farm for my very first time, you guys I have to say it was a little emotional for me. Growing up, I’ve never really had the opportunity to have a real Christmas tree as a kid so it was nice to be up there to get the experience to smell the trees, to see the beautiful Christmas decorations, we were at Sheridan Nurseries for those that live in Toronto. It's definately a tradition moving forward i'd love to add to our family, moving forward. Rene was such a trooper to get up there and take this photos with me, I love when Emily is behind the camera she gets him giggling and helps him loosen up, he is always laughing at how awkward it is when people are taking photos of him haha! He says “ babe wow, you’re a natural this whole blogger thing isn’t so easy” he makes me laugh, all day long hands down funniest guy i know (hehe).

Moving onto the outfit I kept it, super comfortable and simple like I always do I love this plaid coat with the leather detailing, it’s such a nice change than my usual black coats. I’ve had this Billabong toque forever and I absolutely love it, I’m such a hat girl so if I can manage to work one with my outfits on a regular basis, it’s a match made in heaven. How are you ladies finding the holiday season? Super happy we’ve decided to keep it simple and easy this season, stress free Christmas season feels amazing. Hope your shopping trips don’t have you stressed out, just center yourselves and find the reasons why we celebrate this season to begin with. I'll link my coat below but for the rest of my outfit see previous post.

 

Thanks for stopping By!
