HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS 2019
It’s that time of year again…time for me to share our home for the holidays 2019 look forward to this time all year. There’s just something so special and magical about having the home decorated for Christmas! This is our first year in our new home. 🥰
So if you’ve read a blog or two of mine, you’ll already know I love traditions and nothing makes me happier than having something that reminds me of years past.
While my Christmas decorations may not be everyone’s cup of tea, everything I look at brings back sweet memories from the old wooden ornaments that donned my childhood Christmas tree, to the decorations that were my grandmothers, to the newer decorations that have been given to us by friends, family, and military units. Each piece tells a story…and that brings my heart joy.
My approach to decorating honestly is just one that the kids can get in on. I want them to feel like they were a part of it all. (I’m not a perfectionist…not even a little. So I can handle when it’s not “just right”.) We have homemade ornaments, and I also allow them to help hang the ornaments. Are they always well placed? Not usually…but that’s okay.
So here’s to Christmas in our new home, making new memories, remembering Christmas’s past, and passing down memories to our kids.
I love everything about this time of year, but one of the things I love most about this year is the fact that we have a fireplace!! One of the “must haves” for this house was a fireplace. So I’m thrilled. Hopefully it will be chilly enough that we can have a fire this year. Fingers crossed!
Until next time, friends…
