'It is Christmas in the heart, that puts Christmas in the air' | Huntsville, AL

Greetings from Alabama! ...where there hasn't been a snowfall yet (that the snow has stuck at least), and I can go outside without my heavy winter jacket... Needless to say, I've been spoiled! Alex and I are heading back to Ohio today, but I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays :) Safe travels to all!

We went with an artificial tree this year, but I still think it's beautiful!!

Alex and I picked out our favorite ornaments. The rocket is a newbie! It's supposed to represent Huntsville, nicknamed as "The Rocket City" :)

It wouldn't be Christmas without holiday baking! These turned out yummy.

From miles away | the bahamas

Every once in a while you're in the right place at the right time, and luck goes your way.. this happened to be one of those times. Over the summer I won a cruise for 2 to the Bahamas during the first part of December. Fun fact, it turned out to be the same destination where my sister got married almost 2 years ago - Nassau, Bahamas. At the time it seemed too good to be true, and light years away. Well it came and it went just like that. I spent the past few days away at sea.. and took for granted the sunny blue skies and warm winter breeze. I was not ready to come back to 30 degrees (but glad I'm not in Ohio for the snow!!). I couldn't help but share a few pictures from the trip! And if you're in the cold weather.. close your eyes.. and simply imagine..
