From the time I was a young girl, the Christmas season has always been a magical time of year. I have so many cherished memories of spending time with my family and creating Christmas traditions. It’s hard to pinpoint my favorite part of the holiday season because so many things come to mind; picking the perfect Christmas tree, decorating gingerbread houses, and opening an early gift on Christmas Eve (it was always Christmas pj’s!!) But the best part about Christmas is giving gifts to the ones I love. There is nothing better than coming up with a present that I know my hubby, one of my sisters, or my mom will absolutely love. I love the excitement and anticipation leading up to Christmas morning. The look on their faces when they open a gift I have given them is priceless.

 I try to put a lot of thought into the process because I want each gift to be symbolic of the love and care that I have for each person. That’s why I’ve teamed up with Nordstrom this holiday; they are my go-to when it comes to giftability. They always have something for everyone on my list. Thanks to them, I can get my shopping done early, enjoy the magic of Christmas, and do what really matters most – spend time with my family. Nordstrom has allowed me to Live, Love, and Give this holiday season.

  5. Rach you always look so happy and beautiful! Red is an excellent colour on you especially lip! Hope you and your loved ones enjoy the holiday season and keeping yourselves warm in the freezing Utah :)

  6. What a beautiful couple you are! Loving all the red! It was touching how you shared your joy in “gifting.” This has always been my favorite time of the year also. I got so excited as a little girl making Christmas gifts at school for my family members. Then, as a teenager, I loved working part-time in retail when all the stores would put up holiday decorations. Happy Holidays!

  7. these photos are adorable! definitely #frameworthy! love the coordinating outfits, love the greenery & festive touch, love the smiles! i, too, have included many Nordstrom options in my holiday gift guides. They’re fabulous!

  8. Hi Rachel. I just had a quick question, your red hunter boots do they have a gloss finish or ate they plain? Can you also tell the name on the box because there are a lot of different reds.

    Thank you!
