Christmas With Friends

Tonight we celebrated Christmas with our friends Lawren and Robert. Each one of them got us very cool gifts, that both happened to be very personalized!

Below is a recipe binder that Lawren got us. On the front and side, it says "Nutt Family Favorites"!

And the picture below is of a hammer that Robert had engraved for us with "J & A" on it. He also attached a Home Depot gift card to it which I'm sure we'll be able to use on something for our business!

Merry Christmas! Tomorrow is Christmas Eve!

It's almost been a month since I last blogged.  I was informed (by Lawren Todd) that we need to update this a LOT more than we do. So here you go Lawren- this blog is dedicated to you today! Enjoy!

I'm so excited and happy to say that our business, J&A Designs, has successfully taken off!! On November 13th, we had a booth at the Holiday Market in Olde Towne Clinton. The couple weeks leading up to the market were probably the most stressful weeks we've been through! They were full of many LONG nights, but it was so worth it. I guess you could say this was the debut of our business and all of our items. We are so blessed to be able to say that it was a huge success! We've been spending all of our free time working on orders from the market and other orders we've had since the launch of our online store. I'm so happy to say that we are finally finished with the last of our orders just in time for Christmas!

We spent Thanksgiving in Nashville with Jonathan's parents. It was the first time I'd ever traveled on a major holiday since all my family lives in the Clinton area. We had fun and it was so nice to leave Clinton and everything behind for a few days. We ate a lot, shopped on Friday and did a lot of relaxing!

Before we left for Thanksgiving, we decorated our apartment for Christmas! Jonathan LOVES Christmas and everything about it, so he was very adamant that our house would be decorated when we came home from Thanksgiving. Although we don't have a mantle, and we don't have a lot of places to decorate, I think it turned out really cute!

This past Sunday Jonathan and I celebrated 6 months of marriage! I can't believe it's already been that long!  But we've loved every minute of what has turned out to be a very busy 6 months! The picture below is before we left for dinner at Julep to celebrate.
