all is merry + bright

Can you believe Christmas is already over? All that gift buying, trip planning, food prepping, house cleaning, carol singing… and it’s over in a flash. We were blessed with another wonderful Christmas holiday this year. We spent the first part of the week with Craig’s family in Nashville, and then headed home to Atlanta to be with my family on Christmas day. Lots and lots of food was eaten, church was attended, family and friends were visited, presents were given and received, and it was a lovely holiday spent celebrating everything we love most.

Coco was especially excited about this giant candy cane rawhide, which was devoured in less than 5 minutes::
