A Merry Friday 5

It's Friday -- and even better, it's the Friday before Christmas! Things I'm loving this merry Friday . . .

1// I'm so ready to give my gifts! I absolutely love buying gifts but I am terrible at keeping secrets -- so Christmas and birthdays are always tough for me!

2// I am heading home today! Y'all know that Wilmington is my favorite place on earth. I have to work a few days next week, so I'll be splitting time between Wilmington and Raleigh, but I'm thankful to have a few days off for Christmas (and I love Raleigh almost as much as I love Wilmington).

3// I get to see my sweet Soph today! Due to our NYC trip, I had to leave her home for a couple of weeks, and I can't wait to see that little fluff.

4// Yesterday was my mom's birthday -- and tonight, we are celebrating her! I doubt she'll be dancing on the tables, but how cute is that birthday display (thanks pinterest). I can't wait to toast to her -- and to many more birthdays to come!

5// Christmas is my absolute favorite season -- and with only 5 days left, the Christmas music and decor is in full bloom. This Friday, I'm mostly excited to get to spend time with my family during the most wonderful time of the year.


We Took the Road Less Traveled


  1. You picked such beautiful photos! I had to admit, I'm not so great at holding presents back but my boyfriend is even worse. He seriously told me or gave me half of my presents in November, lol. We haven't spent a Christmas together yet because our families are all over the place, which works out for him because we exchange presents in mid December. I don't think he'd be able to actually make it to Christmas!

  2. Enjoy your weekend home in Wilmington celebrating birthdays and Christmas with the ones you love!

  3. I love Wilmington! I spent the 4th of July there with my friends this year, and my bestie is getting married at the Bellamy Mansion next Fall and I can't wait! Happy Holidays!

  4. I love all of the Christmas decor. Your presents look perfect! I hope you have a great time in Raleigh (I love living here!). Have a very, Merry Christmas!

  5. That is the cutest birthday display!

  6. Jealous you'll be in Wilmington!! I'd go back to college in a second if it meant more years in Wilmy :) Merry Christmas, pretty!!
