Hey everyone, Bryana is here with me and we honestly thought it would be awesome to just talk to each other and in the process you will hopefully realize why Christmas is so important to us and why we make it such a big deal!
BRYANA: So we are going to pretty much interview each other.
JUSTIN: Yeah, why not?
BRYANA: No this sounds fun! CUTE!
JUSTIN: I’m really excited about finally having a chance to tell everyone why Christmas is so important to us. Wait why is Christmas so important!? Lol - Let’s make sure we are on the same page.
BRYANA: YAY! HOW EXCITING! This was when it all began... Our journey began in Dec! That’s why we go back to Dec all the time! :)
"Our Christmas Cards are our year in review. We call them seasons, much like television our life gets pretty crazy.
JUSTIN: I don’t think people even know we met on Christmas Day! Yeah we went to the same high school, you may have known of me! But we didn’t know each other, personally. Plus we got engaged on 12.12.12. Lol - So December is kind of a big deal. Lol
What’s your favorite December Memory?
BRYANA: Sooo crazy! The memories are coming back to me, as we speak!!! You were so popular! The guy everyone knew. & I was the jock, the sports player. A lot of memories come to mind. But one of my favorites, was the traveling. Going from CA to AZ. Road trips are the absolute best! I feel it’s a time to catch up, socialize & gossip! Lol. The weather was always cold. Total snuggle weather! Cuddling up next to the warm fire places. What’s your favorite X-mas food dish?
BRIGHT HOLIDAY LOVE
JUSTIN: Well interesting enough every year we’ve had something different. I don’t know I just can’t decide because food is life! Let me think... oh actually I think last year had my favorite dish. Mia’s Ham (My Sister) she made has me dead. You know what now that I think about it lol - I don’t think I know what your favorite holiday song is?
"We take our greatest lesson of the year and share it with all the people who know us and love us. Because we are just like every one else. So much left to learn about life and the things that matter most!"
BRYANA: She made that Pineapple Ham, didn’t she? That was delicious! (Mia, I need the recipe!) Favorite Holiday song... BA-HUM-BUG!!! Just kidding!!! I’m loving the holidays even more because you love the holidays! I grew up on Celine Dion’s Christmas Album. It would be blaring in my house when it came time to decorate for the holidays. Narrowing it down to a specific song... Tough decision, she’s an icon! Tell me this...
What was your MOST FAVORITE Christmas gift, you’ve ever received?
JUSTIN: I don’t even know the answer to that? Do you?
BRYANA: OF COURSE I KNOW! I feel like it was the Camera your Mom bought you one year. Am I right? Please tell me I am, even if I’m wrong! ;) Hahahahaaah.
JUSTIN: Ahahhahaha I totally didn’t think of that to be honest! But yeah, that was a GREAT ONE! You know me and gifts I’m so thankful for anything. Speaking of Gifts. Let’s talk about that Saint Jude.
"This year we broke free in so many ways, and we have never been so happy, which is why this year's theme is to stand in the light!"
BRYANA: Saint Jude! Saint Jude! Every year! That’s just what we do. It’s US. For those of you that don’t know...It’s our way of giving back. Also, we LOVE babies!!!! It’s heartbreaking the children that are affected every single day by diseases & cancer. It’s the least we can do.
JUSTIN: Well for me and I think once I say this you are going to be like, “oh yeah - duh!” - lol But as a kid I was always sickly and something completely out of your control as a child. Now that I’m in the best shape of my life and healthy as an OX - I’m so thankful! And so for me it’s so personal and the slogan is true. Be thankful for the healthy kids in your life, because we all aren’t so fortunate and if you have the means GIVE to those who are not. AHHAHAHAHAH I love it! Let’s talk about this years Christmas Card, it’s by far our biggest project to date! What’s was your favorite thing about the cards?
What was your favorite thing about the Holiday Cards?
BRYANA: Perfectly, said. My favorite thing about the cards. Our faces!!! We’re cute!!! In all seriousness tho. Not sure if any of you noticed, or even turned the card over, lol. On the back of our card, it says. “In Loving Memory of Ciarra Marie Borne.” That’s my baby cousin. I miss her dearly. This card was SO special for me this year. Different than any other year before. I lost, not only my family member, but she was my Best Friend. So having that personalized added touch, meant everything to me! And more! So thank you babe! Thank you for placing a piece of my heart on that card, for all to see. May she RIP.
JUSTIN: Awe that’s cute! Of course! I mean that is exactly what our card stands for! Ciarra was a kid. I mean she was 24. But that is still a child. People don’t realize how fragile life is till they lose someone and there is no greater pain then losing a child. I can not imagine. Even more so why I love Saint Jude. This is by far our most meaningful card. What I love so much about this holiday and why we introduced a Video is because most importantly we do this for family. The Holiday is about us all and the video is kind of a year in review. All the beautiful memories we’ve shared and all the beautiful memories our family has shared. I think as we wrap up this holiday story. What is your favorite thing about me during the holidays?
BRYANA: That BIG OL’ SMILE!!! It’s a face, like I’ve never seen before. Each year gets better & better! You’re kind of like Santa Clause, you love seeing all the gifts underneath the tree! Your excitement reminds me of a kid! In closing, every year, I’m thankful we get to spend yet another one for the books! Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year everybody! Chambers, out!
JUSTIN: Wait don’t I get to say what my favorite thing about you is during the Holidays?
BRYANA: THEHEHEEH. I’m blushing! Of course!!! Let me hear it!!!!!!!
JUSTIN: AHAHAHHAHAHA Honestly it’s your heart, you really do put a lot of effort into what you do for me during the Holidays and you may not think it’s much but to me it’s everything! So I want to say thank you. Love you and this is truly going to be the best Christmas ever!
BRYANA: Me? Stop....... Really? :) That’s how you feel? THANK YOU! I love you & I love our hearts together! 2017, Best Christmas Ever! Chambers out! XO
JUSTIN: Without further ado we present our 2017 Christmas Video! Enjoy and Merry Christmas and BRIGHT HOLIDAY LOVE! MUAHHHHHHH!
