    White Christmas

    The snow in PDX almost stopped our Christmas Eve dinner from happening! But we ended up having a wonderful holiday. See the cozy, comfortable outfit I wore while hosting my very first Christmas Eve in my apartment with my family.

The Air Max is an iconic style of Nike footwear that has grown…
