(small preview of the new Kale Manor haha)
To our delight, Zach and I did not have to work Christmas Eve. We ended up spending Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in Alabama with Zach's mom before picking up Allie and heading back home. For Christmas, Zach surprised me with a light fixture I had been drooling over for our new kitchen-

Allie also surprised us with a thoughtful gift-
We even went back New Years Day to see The Hobbit!
Zach's mom ended up spending a few days with us back in Atlanta and we were so thrilled to have her. We are so blessed to have such a great mom/MIL/Nana in our life!
Isn't it crazy how similar the three of them look? (Ignore the beard...)
It hasn't been stained yet, but isn't the new table awesome? They did a great job! And the island... it's made all the difference in our kitchen! More pics coming soon :)
We "kicked in the new year" fairly quietly, just a cozy night at home in front of the fire, enjoying yummy goodies and watching movies.
Allie and I spent the beginning of 2014 exploring our new little town.
It was a rather imPromPtu P Day, PoPPing in the local shops and even getting some Pie! We were pleasantly surprised with all the little treasures we found in the quaint shops. Our favorite was Peace, Love, and Decorating!
Fun with fur.
LUUURVE these chairs. And this pic of Al.
Aaaand last, but not least, the pie shop!
Allie picked the pecan! Perfect for P Days :)
Love love love ending 2013 with this girl and starting 2014! I can't wait to see what God has in store for our family and this new adventure in Atlanta!
