it's beginning to look a lot like...

Oh how I love the holiday season. I don't like to decorate until after Thanksgiving, but it takes all my willpower. I know that I appreciate it all the more for it's fleeting time in our home. There's just something so soothing and comforting about the bits of sparkle, unwrapping treasures that revive old memories, and listening to old-fashioned music.

Trimming the tree with my son is the best part, his eyes wide at all the marvelous pieces and stories behind the ornaments. He can't imagine how ooooold that one is since it was mommy's as a little girl. 

In our brand new house, we decided to bring in some new decorations, and said goodbye to others that have grown a bit tired. The new pieces mix well with the old, and match our personality and the story of our house. A bit rustic, a bit whimsical, and bit of preppy plaid snuck in here and there.  

It's fun to wander around the house with just the twinkle lights and candles lighting up a room. 

Little details to make us smile.

Happy December everyone!
