I’m sorry to say I fell off the blogging wagon for a couple of weeks. I needed to collect myself and my thoughts and not necessarily share those all with the world. But the holidays are here! I wanted to share a couple of things E and I put up to have some Christmas cheer at home. We only did a little bit of decorating because we won’t be here for the holidays, and we are not ready to invest in a lot of Christmas stuff until we feel a little more settled down.
First, our ornament wreath:
I worked on this wreath over Thanksgiving break after seeing this tutorial on Pinterest. It’s nice to see it and feel a little bit of Christmas cheer after a day of work and a hellish commute. This also gave me a little bit of an “easy crafting” bug. I like it.
Next (and last), our tree:
Confession: Or tree is artificial. I do not find this blasphemous. It was a practical decision that made the most sense to us. It is still pretty, and we can use it next year, too. One day, when we have kids, we’ll probably get a real tree every once in a while, but not today.
E and I truly feel like Christmas is coming, and I am nearly done with presents, and have started wrapping them. To demonstrate how large my family is, I might have to post a picture with all the presents (just from us) under the tree. How have you decorated for the holidays? Are you on top of everything, or will you be banging the doors of Target on Christmas Eve?
