Deck the halls

6 Nov

I know, I know, Halloween was only last week, Thanksgiving hasn’t even happened, and the department stores are already putting up their holiday displays. I’m going to let you in on a little secret though… I love it. I was out this past weekend and was so happy to see all the trees, decorations and presents. I even enjoyed the Christmas music playing over the speakers.

I just can’t help it. Ask my family – I have always loved Christmas. There is just something about the season that makes me so incredibly happy. I think it has a lot to do with all the wonderful memories I have from when I was a kid.

So just the sight of green and red has already begun lifting my spirits. So much so, I was half tempted to decorate the entire house already. Both of my siblings will be here for Thanksgiving, but Grace won’t be home for Christmas. Part of me thinks it would be fun to have all the decorations up when all of us will be here.

Looking at all I need to get done though, I doubt I’ll get everything up in time. But I couldn’t help myself and had to start some holiday decorating this week. While my dad is visiting my sister in Oregon, I thought it might be fun to give his new deer mount a little holiday makeover. ‘Tis the season, right?

Cheers to the holiday spirit!

‘Tis the season

5 Dec

Can you believe it’s only 20 days until Christmas?! I can’t, but I’m so excited. This is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. I love the music, I love the atmosphere and I even love the snow. And since it’s December, I decided that is was time to get into the holiday spirit. I spent the past weekend Christmas shopping and pulling out the decorations.

For the second year in a row, I took the liberty of decorating the artificial tree in our piano room. The theme is purple because it’s one of my favorite colors. I think it turned out pretty snazzy if I do say so myself. We still have all the other decorations and the real tree to put up, so this should be a very fun week.

And in other BIG news: I’ll be spending New Year ’s Eve in Germany! I fly out December 25 and stay until January 2 (more details to come). I am, as usual when it comes to seeing Sebastian, beyond excited. It’s hard to wipe the smile off my face. Happy Holidays!
