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.
