Christmas 'Round Here!

Folks. It's officially the Christmas season. We've got our tree and it's sparkly and smells like pine and making me happy every moment I walk in our front door. My Michael Buble album is playing on repeat and Silver Bells echoes through my mind day in and day out. That means: IT'S CHRISTMAS.

With Christmas comes traditions and festivities and memories galore, just like Mr. Thomas and Me is collecting our favorite of times and things and moments in the now for later, we want your Christmas season to be remembered as it is today. Because next year, it won't look the same. And the following, even more different.

This year I've partnered with my dear soul sister Erin over at Hooley with a Z to create the 12 Days of Blogging Christmas series link-up and we're hoping you'll partake. From December 9th through to the 24th we're prompting you to share random goodies, moments, and memories that make-up your Christmas season. Yes, the 9th to the 24th is more than 12 days, we skipped weekends because we believe that time is for you and not for us here in the blog world so get out there and enjoy.

Don't feel locked in to blog. Please document your Christmas traditions through photo, vlog, writing, interpretive dance… And the list goes on.

Here are the prompts for you loves:

Of course we want your pretty faces to join us for all the prompts (since there will be opportunities to link-up at the bottom of all our posts), but if just a few interest you, that works for us too! 

Our goal is to create a community of women celebrating and loving the season at hand while sharing the ways their families are unique from others in offering a firsthand look at your holiday experiences over the next two weeks. 

That said, JUST SAY YES. 

Did I mention the #sayyesproject goes live tomorrow? Oh, does it! Please join us in saying YES to new and unique experiences all while sharing in the adventure with one another!

  10. so I have been wanting to join your say yes project, but have a hard time not saying yes, I am usually the one that has to talk everyone in to doing something .. and for the past few months I haven't been able to say yes because I would always say yes. I saw your post and usually I would just pass it by and just follow the link up instead of participating, but you my dear have got me ... I am saying YES!!!! Ill be linking up :)

  11. YAY!! I can't wait to participate with y'all!!
