Roman’s 1st Christmas Tree & A Pampers Giveaway!

DenaDecember 17, 2013

Even though I’ve been itching to decorate for Christmas since the day after Halloween, we finally got around to it last week. It’s no secret that I’ve been totally wrapped up in the Christmas spirit and enjoying Roman’s 1st holiday season. Still, there is something about the holidays that makes time move more quickly & life seem more hectic. Between Christmas shopping & mailing out cards, stringing lights & baking cookies — it’s easy to get lost in the craziness of it all.

Over the weekend, I shot a winter wedding during the biggest snowstorm of the year. That experience added a whole new level of stress to my days. I am going to make a conscious effort to slow down & decompress for the rest of the season. I truly want Roman’s 1st Christmas to be about love, gratitude & family — the things that matter most to us. Decorating the tree with Matthew & my little Roman James filled my heart with such peace & joy. I’m praying for many more memories like that one as we move through the holidays.

One of the little things that goes a long way during the holidays is having a local, friendly spot to depend on for last minute bits & bobs. For me, CVS has always been that place. I honestly cannot tell you how many times I’ve had to make a “quick stop” at my local CVS on the way to a family party because I forgot to get a card. It’s also great for last minute gifts and even baby necessities, like diapers & wipes. All of us Mamas know that the holidays can be a stressful time, especially when you have a little one in diapers! It’s great to know that you can always count on your neighborhood CVS for fuss-free savings on Pampers.

Pampers has recently come out with innovations across their diapers and wipes, which are all carried at CVS. I’m excited to be partnering up with Pampers & CVS to gift one lucky Live, Love, Simple reader with a coupon good for a free package of Pampers & Pampers wipes. To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me what you love most about the holidays. (Giveaway is open to those with a US mailing address only. The last day to enter will be December 24th when the winner will be randomly selected.)

Good luck & here’s wishing that your days are merry & bright. xo

    What I love about the holidays… hmmm….
    What I love most is seeing the Christmas spirit through the eyes of my two boys! Yes, it gets a little much when they wake me up every morning asking, “Is it Christmas today?!?!” BUT when Christmas morning finally comes along, watching the excitement on their faces, I start to remember that feeling in my belly when I was a kid waiting for Santa to come!

    I love that my family and I can celebrate the true meaning of Christmas any time. A portion of us work in healthcare and work on the actual holidays, so we get together ahead of time. We actually had “Christmas” get together this past weekend. It shows me that it’s all about family and getting together, not the hype and commercialization of it.
