Martel Christmas | 2014

Personal Post! Merry Christmas, Friends :-)

While Christmas Day isn't "snowy and white" in Nashville, we are feeling pretty festive over here with our Irish coffee, festive music playing, and twinkle lights strung over the mantle and our tree. 

It has become tradition to create a card that is unexpected and fun - something that is talked about well into the summer months, and friends/family often ask, "can you tell us what you're doing this year for a card!?" Most times, I'll be honest, we come up with an idea on a whim and using our different artistic talents we are able to put together something really fun. I'm excited to share a few out-takes from our annual Martel Household Christmas Card shoot - and yes, our amazing roommate (never leave us!) and kitties are included. They are, after all, part of our household; and family is what you make it! 

We are also getting into a new tradition - a Christmas song and video from Marc, every year! *BEST.NEWS.EVER*

Jason + Alysia Green | Hudson's 1st Christmas | 2014

Nashville and the Greens are synonymous to me, as they were new to Nashville when I was new to Nashville. We met within weeks of our separate moves and have been friends ever since! What a journey of joys and heartbreaks, pregnancy (Alysia, not me!!!) and this new bundle of awesome - Hudson Green. And, Lord, how we all love him! I am the proudest of friends watching the way Jason and Alysia have become parents, and I feel like the lucky "auntie" that gets called upon to snap the big and little moments of this family's life together.
