Cold Hands Warm Heart Cocoa Party

On a chilly December day I gathered some of my best gal pals (In Honor of DesignHunted InteriorWonderfully Lost, and Little Baby Garvin) and their kiddos to make a trek to Bottoms’ Tree Farm for an afternoon of trees and treats.  

Getting to this day was a struggle to say the least.  While the rest of the country was getting hit with snow storms Georgia got rain.  And I mean rain…for days.  So we had to reschedule I think 3 different times.  But third times a charm, and with the sun shining and some unexpected help from the perfect model horses (do you die over their blonde bangs) the day was pure perfection.  And to be honest it’s probably my favorite shoot to date (hence the million pictures that I just had to share…thanks RW).

I’ll be posting all week with the recipes as well as all of the outfit details (huge hugs to Gap and Old Navy who kept us all cozy and warm), but make sure to check out the other ladies blogs today (Anna, Kristin, Amanda, and Jessica) for their recount of time at the farm.  Happy Monday Loves!  truly, MKR  

P.S. Congrats to Sarah Tiambeng the winner of our HP Spread Joy giveaway!
