Cozy Outdoor Christmas

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!  Ours was very relaxed, which was great because I felt ready to face the week in a big way this morning.  I love when I can come upon a Monday that way!  🙂

Christmas decor is up and it really has made this time of year real for me.  I feel like the second half of this year has just gone by so quickly…  I am looking forward to trying to slow my pace a little bit and try to really savor this season.  It is my favorite, after all.

I tried my hand at an Editorial Calendar for the month of December — basically scheduling myself for posts each day and giving myself ideas for what to include on the blog this month.  Wish me luck!  I have not ever really created a guide like that for myself, so we will see if it helps me stick to posting once a day.

Peppered in amongst other holiday and non-holiday related posts will be posts about our Christmas decor.  I hope you enjoy it!  We are still at my in-laws’ home so the decor does not disappoint around here.  It seems that every vignette my mother-in-law creates is magical and stunning.  She is amazing.

Sharing just a couple of simple scenes today of our outdoor spaces.

 A pretty wreath welcomes you at the front door.  This thing is giant!

Greenery and a sprig of berries make this little end table Christmas-y.

 Decorating during this season is all about layering.  That silver tray is perfect for morning coffee, books, or tablets — and can you spot those blankets on the chair to the right?  I brought those out there for anyone brave enough to sit outside on a cold morning.

 And back-tracking a little bit… When you’re heading out to the patio, this cute little rug is there to greet you and warm your feet.
