The holidays are an exciting time of year for anyone, but a little bit more-so for a mom-to-be with her first on the way! In honor of our #MotherhoodHoliday contest, Cassie Kelley, founder of Womanista, is giving us a peak at her favorite maternity looks plus the fun holiday traditions she and husband Charles Kelley (yes of Lady Antebellum!) can’t wait to share with their little one.
How are you getting ready for the holiday season? We just put up our Christmas tree, which is always fun to do. We make apple cider, put on Christmas music and decorate the tree. It’s a festive and fun evening. I am also getting some shopping done, and I always like to plan a little cocktail party for my girlfriends.
What is your favorite holiday tradition? On Christmas Eve my mom gives everyone in our family a set of Christmas pajamas, and we all get together to have a nice meal in our pjs and just hang out. That’s my favorite time during the holidays.
What is the one present you are hoping for this year? I have such wanderlust, so I always hope for a cool experience somewhere, whether that’s a trip to a fabulous locale or a gift card to a great new restaurant. I love creating those kind of memories.
How are the holidays different for you this year now that you are expecting? It’s so fun to think about different traditions that we will share with our son once he’s here. Christmas feels different this year just because we have such anticipation for his arrival and we have so much to be thankful for. I thought it would be fun to hang a Christmas stocking for him this year but I can’t decide if that’s weird to do before he’s even born! ha ha.
