a merry mack christmas + a hopeful 2017!

this christmas was so very special. it was the first christmas in our new house. 

we celebrated with some of our favorite new + old traditions:

new this year: hiking up a mountain + finding the perfect christmas tree- which mind you took a few hours ;)


ongoing traditions: date night- seeing white christmas at the capitol theater, meeting up with old friends on christmas eve + watching the old time carolers- caroling through our tiny town, hosting christmas morning breakfast feat. great grandma's santa pitcher. and most importantly spending time with those we love! 

this year was quiet + sweet. (knowing that next christmas might not be so calm) <3

we sat in the dark early christmas morning together with just the glow of the tree in the distance. it made me think of how grateful i am, and how fortunate to have had solid years of just us two. this time is precious + i'm so lucky to have this guy by my side.

2016 has been one heck of a year for us macks. >> lots of changes that's for sure. 💛 buying our first house, opening a new business, finding out we've got a sweet little babe on the way + now tackling home projects galore. whew. I'm beyond grateful for what this past year has brought us + who God's given us to do life with. feeling mega blessed is an understatement. 2017 has some big shoes to fill!

praying your 2017 is filled with all kinds of goodness! here's to what we hope is the best year yet! <3
