Christmas is quickly approaching (hello, less than a month away!) and I’m becoming frantic. I need to take a breath. I have started my shopping, but it feels like there is still so much to do; I haven’t even decorated my place yet. Now I know it’s not December yet, but, I always say November 20th is the ‘go-ahead’ day for all things Christmas, for me at least.
Last year at this time, my apartment was pretty ugly. I was using hand-me-down furniture (from the 90’s) as we were waiting for our house to sell (and in turn, keeping the house staged). And in all honesty, I felt a little depressed that I couldn’t decorate for the holidays.
Well, I could have decorated.
I just felt it was kind of pointless, considering the furniture and coldness of the place. Still though, it didn’t feel Christmasy and I was happy to spend several days at my parent’s place surrounded by a beautiful tree, tiny ornaments, garland-laced railings, festive lights, a fire place, and more.
This year is different though. My apartment feels like home as I have my furniture and have created a space for myself that feels like myself. Additionally, there is no longer an eye sore that is my living room (ha!). Ish. I am so excited for Christmas that, although I really shouldn’t be bringing more stuff into my apartment (it’s already quite full), I went to my parent’s house a few weeks back and picked up a big chunk of my Christmas decor. I love decorating with reindeer and trees, and tend towards larger pieces. The stuff has been sitting in a corner of my dining room, but this week I am determined to decorate. Let’s get this Christmas party started!
Do you decorate for Christmas? Do you have a theme?
*** I have been listening to a local radio station that plays Christmas music 24/7 now, it makes me so happy. #thelittlethings
