Merry Everything & Happy Always







The Madison+Main-iacs all enjoyed a two-day holiday break with their families this year and there was certainly joy in the air. Leading the way to a holly, jolly holiday were the Whitfield’s and Rebmann’s — both celebrating their baby’s first Christmas. #precious On top of the adorable new additions, the Madison+Main-iacs took things to another level, going Above+Beyond if you will. The Nida’s Bourbon Brown Butter Peach Pie (say that three times fast) landed them in first place at their annual Pie Off competition. The Ghaffari’s set baby Donovan up for Olympic success with a multi-purpose trampoline/ottoman. Missing their last four vet appointments and not realizing their pup put on 10 pounds, the Newlin’s squeezed their labradoodle, Millie, into her old Santa outfit — hard emphasis on “squeezed.” #callanimalcontrol Leanne Ferry spread holiday cheer with all 337 of her family members. And to no surprise, the Brockwell’s heavily contributed to the record-breaking Virginia ABC sales.


As you can tell, this Christmas was one for the books. Next up? New Year’s.


We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and will bring in a bold 2020!


See y’all next decade.
