It wouldn’t be the holidays without … my husband, six kids, and four dogs!
Favorite Christmas present I’ve ever gotten … last Christmas was pretty great. I got a saddle from my then fiancé, (now husband), Thomas.
Best gift I’ve ever given ... last year for Christmas I gave my dear friend, Kevin (we call him “Uncle Kevin” in the Scott-Evans household), a black, Ford F-150 King Ranch. Seeing his reaction was priceless and a memory I will always cherish.
Most wonderful Christmas memory … anything involving my kids! Hanging up the stockings on the mantle, decorating our Christmas tree, and making homemade cookies are a few of my favorites.
For our holiday meal, I especially look forward to ... all of them! There is an incredible sun-dried tomato and fennel stuffing recipe we like to use during Thanksgiving and Christmas. (Yes, it’s that good).
My family’s most cherished holiday traditions are … playing Christmas music and decorating the Christmas tree all together. There are six kids at the house, so it can be chaotic, but in the best way.
The first song I put on my holiday playlist is … I’m going to go with the classic, “All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey or any song from Michael Bublé's Christmas album.
Best place to spend the holidays … there’s no place like home during the holidays, so going to Austin!
Good organization for giving back … Inheritance of Hope & Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
My greatest wish for the new year ahead is … health and happiness and another incredible year with my team at Kendra Scott doing what we do best, providing beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewelry for our customers and showing up for our communities to support where we can.
