Wow, I’m sort of having a mini crisis over how quickly this holiday season went! Christmas is in just 2 days and I find myself with so much to do still. But really, I know I need to stay in the moment and enjoy it. I’m excited to stay in my first home for Christmas this year. This feels like another milestone in my path of homeownership. Everything has been a first: my first wreath, my first time decorating my porch with twinkly lights, my first tree. It’s all so exciting and daunting. I sort of put a lot of pressure on myself this year and it’s not all working out. Like my holiday cards… I had grand visions of sending those out super early so that everyone would have my new mailing address (mostly because I love getting lots of holiday cards in the mail). And I wanted to find a design that was all about having a new home because I was soooo proud of that. Did I do any of that? Nope. I ordered my holiday cards on Dec. 20 and they are New Year’s themed because that is simply the best I can do right now. And I just sort of have to be ok with it and focus on what’s really important — savoring the moments of my first Christmas in my first house. Because that is what I’ll remember years from now.
Anyways, I hope you guys have an amazing holiday full of joy, happiness, and lotssss of good food. I’m planning to take next week off, except for one post that I’m really excited about (hint: it’s a behind-the-scenes glimpse unlike you’ve ever seen before here!).
p.s. this photo is a fun iPhone snap of some of my recent styling work! More on that to come…
