Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


Merry Christmas you guys! I hope your holiday is off to a great start!!!

Six years ago today I said one hundred thousand percent YES to becoming the mommy of this sweet little nugget! And my mom and I spent a snowy Christmas in Moscow.

Me & Liam at Red Square

And here we are now!



I’m so incredibly thankful for a miracle-working God and I love celebrating this season! I know for some this can be a difficult time, especially remembering loved ones lost, but we hope you find peace and joy in the birth of our Savior. Wishing you all the best!

Oh, and Santa did make an early stop to the Hogan house blessing us with another adoption! Meet Tuna (fish sandwich) Hogan, or at least that’s his name for now :)


I’ll be taking a little blog break to enjoy family and friends but I can’t wait to hear all about your holidays when I return. I will still be on Instagram and Snapchat (simplestylings) so make sure to follow along there!

I’ll be announcing the winner of the Shabby Apple giveaway later today so if you haven’t entered you still have time. Head to Instagram and find the post (about 3 or 4 posts back) to enter!
