Mini Christmas Farmhouse Tour 2015

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Truly. Christmas to me means so many things. This season just warms my heart.

Of course, I see many of my girlies every Sunday and some throughout the week but there’s just nothing like a girls’ day, amen? It’s those moments of over-sharing, laughter, and encouragement that can lift a girl’s spirits without much effort.

Every year, Southern Living creates a masterpiece showcase home. Read more
