December is a whirlwind month and passes way too quickly. Getting into the holiday spirit is quite difficult when you are still busy in your normal routine. Therefore, it’s important to slow down and truly enjoy all those special moments, like holiday gatherings, baking, celebrations, and Christmas decorations.

Attended the sweetest, most beautiful wedding for Colton’s brother. It was at an awesome vineyard in Edmond where they have wine tastings too! We dined in Oklahoma’s first wine cave. She was such a gorgeous bride!
