Christmas Catch-Up

I seem to be always juggling goals. I get one thing under control, only to throw it back in the air so I can concentrate on something else. I'm afraid my blog has been a casualty of that perpetual juggle!

So, here is a brief update of the past few months. 

In November, we had our good friend, Callie Manion, take some holiday photos for us. I've shared a few, but here are some of the others! 






I wanted to incorporate that shoot a with my new venture in hand lettering, so I spent a few hours putting together our holiday cards.

It was our first year sending them out, so they mostly went to family. If you'd like to exchange cards in the future, let me know and I'll put you in my address book for next year!

At Thanksgiving, we went home to San Antonio to spend the holiday with my parents and my older brother Glen's family. That meant a lot of face time with my handsome nephew Leo!
I can hardly wrap my head around how cute he is! We spent the weekend eating, shopping, playing games, and singing "Christmas Monkey" more than any childless adult should. 

December brought a flurry of Christmas spirt and Christmas stress! Since Breck was knee-deep in finals and applying for law school. I did most of my Christmas prep at work. We got a Christmas tree. 

Decorated the office.

And threw a little soiree.

But it's not all parties! I swear we work. 


My highlight from this month was organizing a Christmas line and photo shoot for one of our clients. Working with the models was great, but I actually got to photograph the flat lays! 



It was such a cool process! And come on... when is shopping on someone else's dime not fun?

Squeezed in there, we had Breck's 29th birthday and our 3 year anniversary. Breck could barely look up from his work to celebrate his own birthday, so we settled on take home Carrabaras and presents at home. We exchange the "traditional" gifts every anniversary and this year was leather. After a (100% homemade courtesy of Breck) dinner of homemade lobster ravioli, I gave Breck a Daniel Worthington watch and he got me gorgeous boots from Anthro! Smart boy. I think it's been our best year yet. 

To finsh the year, we spent Christmas with Breck's side of the family in Arkansas. We had Minute to Win It tournaments, movie marathons, explored the Discovery Museum (recently featured in this awesome Jimmy Falllon clip) and got up to all sorts tomfoolery. 

A good end to a most splendid year.
