Our Christmas Photos

All photos by Sarah Swain Photography Only two more weeks until Christmas! One of my favorite Christmas traditions is taking our family photos. When Jake and I first met, the kids were three and five so I love to see how much they've grown each year. Hunter will be nine next week and I'm pretty sure he will be taller than me any day now. I think these photos are my favorite ones that we've ever done. Sarah, of Sarah Swain Photography, was so fun to work with and she was absolutely great ... Read the Post

Black Friday & Cyber Weekend Sales

This weekend after Thanksgiving is probably the best time of year to do your Christmas shopping. There are so many great sales and several stores that ONLY offer sales this weekend. I've listed below my favorite stores to shop this weekend. Personally I don't like shopping in person on Black Friday because it's just too hectic.
