Our Holiday Season 2016

Can you even believe that Christmas Eve is tomorrow? We are so ready to finish work for the day and start our own joyous celebrations! Bridget gets out early for Finals (yay!) & Casey is finishing up a few things at work and then we are both officially on WINTER BREAK!!


But before we take the weekend off to celebrate Christmas, we wanted to share with you our latest seasonal video.

Like our summer video and fall video, we captured all of the activities we did during the holiday season. From our Christmas card photo shoot, to cookie day, to days outside in the snow and adventures in downtown Chicago…our 2016 Holiday video has it all! We hope you guys enjoy seeing a glimpse behind-the-scenes around here just as much as we love capturing these memories and sharing them with you.

We still can’t believe Christmas is this weekend…. where does the time go?!

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas! We’ll be back here on Monday with our December Happy Hour post, and then we’ll officially be out of the office until we get back from our trip to Mexico (more on those vacay details and our posting schedule next week).
