  • #ad No matter my age: the holiday season always feels magical. Each year, I enjoy keeping holiday traditions and embracing new ones. 🖤 With our baby arriving now only weeks away: we’re about to embark on an entirely new adventure — and I’m so excited that this will be our first holiday season with him. Because Thanksgiving falls within two weeks of my due date, I’m thankful my immediate family is traveling to us in Chicago to celebrate this year. Which means: this is the first time I’m “hosting” the holiday! (With plenty of help, of course.) 🦃 With hosting in mind — and being 38 weeks pregnant — I wanted to plan ahead as much as possible. My hope is to create a setting that will feel festive for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I went with a rustic winter look that I absolutely love for the season. I’m thrilled to be partnering with a favorite brand of mine @CrateandBarrel to prepare for the holidays this year.
