Christmas is hands-down my favorite time of year. I’m one of those super mimsy, sings-Christmas-songs-all-year-long, decorating and baking kind of people. I just love how the Christmas season brings me back to magical childhood memories, and I adore seeing Emma-Kate explore and enjoy all of the merriment.

Here is a glimpse into the Melody-Hubbell home this Christmas:

We made a trip to Garvan Gardens to see the lights. If you’re in Arkansas, and especially if you’re close to Hot Springs, this is a MUST see. It’s absolutely magical. Like being on a movie set or in a child’s fairytale. Simply stunning.

And to round this holiday post off, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite instagram pics from the past several weeks.

 Have a very Merry Christmas y’all and a very Happy New Year!!
