There is nothing quite like the feeling of going home. Familiar smells, lots of laughter, and the arms of loved ones make the experience after you move away a rare and beautiful thing. This Thanksgiving weekend Matt and I were blessed to be able to go home to see my family in Tennessee. We spent Thanksgiving day catching up with aunts, uncles, and cousins while indulging in WAY too much turkey and cranberry sauce for our own good. Matt played golf with my dad Friday and Saturday while Nathan (my sister’s husband) helped lead Ali, Mom and me through a hurricane workout. Shoe shopping (I got FOUR new pairs), a dinner with high school friends, and a couple of movie nights rounded out the rest of an incredible trip.
Saturday evening was the best! Right before sunset, my family headed to a local tree farm for a few fun Christmas card photos. With the evergreen trees sparkling in the background, we took turns photographing each other with the ones we love. Check out a few of my favorites from our family time below!
The Fall Branch Christmas Tree Farm made the perfect location for our family photos!
Mom and Dad love it when we come home for the holidays. Mom really likes hearing the pitter patter of many footsteps throughout the house and dad enjoys the conversation over a good meal.
My gorgeous sister Ali married her handsome hubby Nathan last June! Hanging out with the two of them makes my heart so happy.
The whole family together!
I feel so lucky to not only have a sister in Ali, but a true best friend.
Thanks little boo for taking this sweet picture of Matt and me. I LOVE IT!
