♪It's the most wonderful time of the year!♪
Seasons Greetings! I love this time of year, it's something I look forward to every year. There are so many traditions attached to it and I find that comforting. Rick and I got our Christmas tree today, a pretty fraser fir tree from right down the road here in Washington state. We'll start putting the lights on it but we're going to wait to decorate it until Jake comes home for winter break this week so he can decorate it with us. I'm milking that tradition out for as long as I can, even if we have to wait a few days! That's always one of my favorite parts of Christmas is decorating the tree together with Christmas music playing and drinking hot cocoa. Good memories. :)
I feel a bit behind with the holiday decorating with such a late Thanksgiving but that's okay, we've got time, right? Just say yes, it'll make me feel better. :) I did get the dining room decorated today, woohoo! Our main living area throughout the downstairs has a bit of a tropical vibe going on year 'round and I find that a little challenging when trying to decorate for Christmas since those two styles are so opposite. It's summer-y tropical vs. winter-y holiday and I want them to gel, not clash, so I work with what I have and play up what mother nature has to offer us here in the Pacific Northwest. Nature + a little sparkly glam = my favorite way to decorate for Christmas! Hopefully it all goes together.
Come on in, let's have a mimosa!
