It’s December and that means that Christmas is around the corner. December has always been pretty special to me because of Christmas and it also happens to be my birthday month. This year December is extra special because we also get to meet our baby girl. I’m due December 15th and it can’t come soon enough!
When do you buy your Christmas tree? It’s become a tradition for us to go out and buy our tree the same weekend after Thanksgiving. Each year we talk about the type of tree we want before we head out to the Christmas tree farm because I can literally take hours deciding on which one is “the one”. I always joke with Roman how this is one of the hardest decisions I’ll have to make that month and it requires lots of time. This year we went for a traditional look. I wanted an all white and green tree but somehow gold always finds a way into my decor.
This living room has undergone some major renovations. We recently added a fireplace and I couldn’t be happier. It’s the focal point of the room and I can’t wait for all our furniture to arrive so we can finally set everything up just how I have always imagined this room to be. But for now, this will have to do. I hope you enjoy these few pictures and find some inspiration if you haven’t already decorated!
Christmas is a special time when my family and I celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. It’s also a time to reflect on the passing year . All the moments that we cherish and some that we would rather forget. I use this time to reflect on the past and to make spiritual goals for the upcoming year . For me , the birth of Jesus Christ reminds me of a new beginning, a fresh start per say on how to fulfill God’s purpose for my life in the upcoming new year. How to live the next year avoiding the mistakes made in the last . To celebrate this special time and to bring that festive warm feeling into our home, I love to add touches of Christmas decor and music. Of course starting with the Christmas tree. This year I chose the flocked Christmas tree again with gold/white/silver ornaments. I had 3 sets of the most precious hands to help me decorate. I like to make my home not only look like Christmas but also smell and sound like its Christmas too. My girls and I love to bake cookies and make hot cocoa with extra cinnamon. This year we made snowflake sugar cookies and put together a hot cocoa bar cart with everything you need to make the best cup of hot cocoa ever . Of course Christmas music is on repeat at all times. This is the time to be with the ones you love and to enjoy every precious moment. Merry Christmas!!
