I have always loved making my home inviting, warm, and full of joy. Weather it's hosting a dinner party, keeping up on cleaning, or just simply a nice dinner, I just enjoy my home. When Christmas rolls around, I can't wait to decorate and add little sparkles throughout the entire house. Since last year we were so transient because of Derek's rotations, we didn't have a "home" to decorate. Because of this, I was even more antsy to bust out all things glittery and bright. I absolutely love my decorations--the deep jewel toned ornaments, mercury glass accents, my beloved Nativity, the hand painted Santa cookie jar passed down from my grandmother, and even changing up the bedroom decor for a cozy and festive touch. I love having all the lights out and just reading by the glow of the tree and the twinkle it gives off. So, what are you waiting for? Go deck your halls!
