'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring except for me as I write this blog post. I'm feeling all the holiday spirit today! I've been spending quality time with friends and family, watching endless Christmas movies, eating too many festive treats, and looking at twinkling Christmas lights. I went to South Carolina for Christmas, which is where I was born, to visit my grandparents and childhood friends. Even though it's warm here and I definitely won't be having a white Christmas, this is my favorite place to celebrate the holidays because it always feels like home.
As Christmas day quickly approaches, I wanted to take some time to reflect on this past year and celebrate all the wonderful blessings I have received. I've spent almost two years in the coolest city (Nashville) since graduating college, made new friends and (temporarily) said goodbye to old friends, blogged for one year, celebrated three years with my boyfriend, and purchased my first car (yay adulting)! I'm so thankful to have friends and family that support and encourage me to chase after my dreams. I'm also eternally grateful to my readers who have supported me through this crazy blogging experience — you guys mean the world to me!
Quick run down on my Christmas Eve outfit. My lovely boyfriend gave me the teddy bear coat for Christmas, and I haven't taken it off since. I bought this cute LUCCA pinstripe jumpsuit from Blush Boutique in Nashville, and paired it with a white crop top turtleneck from Forever 21. I finished the look off with black booties and red lipstick for Christmas.
Warm wishes to you and your family this Christmas. Take time to enjoy the true meaning for Christmas.
