my boys hanging out and playing in the snow!

I hope you had a very merry Christmas, loves!
We spent ours at my family's mountain home, and we got SNOW on Christmas Eve. It was oh so magical and really a dream come true. Growing up in Southern California, even in the mountains, I only remember snow on Christmas twice: the first year we moved to the Ranch, in 1998, and last year -- our first married Christmas. I prayed and prayed and as the Lord would have it, it started snowing on Christmas Eve. This year, the same thing happened! Weston loved playing in the snow and it was so exciting and fun to have a white Christmas.
I snapped a few pictures in one of my favorite dresses to give you ideas for what to wear on New Year's Eve! It's kinda avant-garde, but pairing a bright dress (and even though Christmas is done, I think red is celebratory and festive and it still works on NYE!) with some faux fur with big hair, a bright lip, and some chunky jewelry is perfect for whatever your New Year's Eve looks like! Since we have little man this year, we will be staying in, getting Chinese food, and watching the ball drop on TV this year while snuggled on the couch but it's still fun to wear something festive! So whether your NYE is a mama-style one like mine, or a girl-out-on-the-town style, this look works for both! Below I've also linked some other styles of red dresses -- dressier and more casual, to give ya ideas too!
I've had a whirlwind of (wonderful) things happen in the past three years and haven't been posting here on my little blog much at all, but in 2017, Lord willing, I will be back at least 3 times per week with posts sharing my heart and encouragement, lifestyle, travel, home and food, and style tips and fashion ideas! In college, I was a Home Economics major and we took classes and emphasized partly in Biblical studies/ministry for women but more than half of our studies were classes like Family Counseling, Clothing Selection (fashion) and construction (actual sewing and design), Food Preparation (cooking), Hospitality and Entertaining, and more. All of these fun arts are such a part of my heart and will be not only shared more here on my blog but in my magazine, too (coming soon!) Love yall and thanks for hanging with me all these years of blogging. Here's to a new year of new things!
