Home Town‘s Erin Napier is enjoying time with her family this holiday season.
Christmastime is finally upon us! Our stockings are hung and our trees are trimmed. Now we can sit back and enjoy spending time with family and friends.
And enjoying family is exactly what Erin Napier is doing this weekend. The Home Town host is cozied up in her Laurel, MS, abode with her two daughters, Mae and Helen. And she’s soaking in all the Yuletide cheer that she can.
“Heaven is 2 baby girls snuggled up on you and a fire going at Christmas time,” she wrote alongside an Instagram photo.
In the pic, Erin Napier is resting with her little girls while they watch Christmas cartoons. And since the weather has been unseasonably chilly this week, they’re keeping warm by a roaring fire.
We also couldn’t help but notice how festive her living room looks. She and her family have decorated a giant spruce tree with an array of eclectic ornaments and golden ribbons. They also hung matching flannel stockings on their mantle.
The whole scene is filled with holiday charm, which is exactly what we expect from an HGTV guru.
Our Favorite ‘Home Town’ Couple Celebrate Their Anniversary in a Bittersweet Post
As Erin detailed in an Instagram post, when she and her Home Town husband first married, “they moved into a very drafty 100-year-old loft in downtown Laurel” that became their first renovation project. And the home gave the couple beautiful memories to last a lifetime.
“When we got home from our honeymoon 13 years ago, we put up our first Christmas tree of our own in the corner in the living room,” she captioned with a romantic video clip. “We started our first company in that loft, and we’ve kept it as my studio all these years.”
But now the couple is saying “goodbye” to their first home. In a few weeks, Erin will hand her keys over to someone that she and Ben “love dearly” so they can create their own memories.
So to mark the milestone, the two stars spent one final night in their cozy loft.
“For our 13th wedding anniversary, he brought me home to the old apartment one last time,” Erin shared. “We had our favorite Chinese carryout from our newlywed years atop the ginkgo leaves from the tree next to our loft. The same tree’s leaves showered us as we ran to the car after our reception.”
And Erin ended her note with a sweet thought that made us all get a little misty.
“I cried for how thankful I am that God gave us each other,” she wrote. “Tonight Ben told me, ‘He knew you needed someone who understood your tender heart.’ Yes. To be completely understood (for better or for worse) and found valuable anyway: that’s love.
