And I really didn’t think I was ready for 18 inches of snow–but as it turns out, it wasn’t so bad to bundle up and head out or drink cocoa and watch a Christmas classic, okay–Elf. And when the snow didn’t stop after the first day, we thought, “This is it. It’s officially the holiday season! Let’s break out the tree.” So we did:
Yes, only a few days after we decorated for Thanksgiving. Aye, we love it all around here. We aren’t really done decorating the tree–that we decked out with blues and golds–but it has a good start. In addition to this year’s ornament (we buy an ornament and date it each year) I am just itching to add some oversized….somethings to the tree. This tree, with a bunch of oversized bulbs and stars, has officially become my inspiration.
Yowza! (I am fairly certain this image is from Country Living, but I can’t find the exact source link) We’ll keep you posted when and how (to DIY or to buy?) these big bad ornaments make it onto our tree soon. So, while Christmas doesn’t officially kick off until after Thanksgiving for most people (we get it), a little bit has weaseled its way into our living room in the form of an in-progress tree–and let me just say, it’s not bad at all. :)
Also, that snow?? Melted completely. Also, not bad. When do you typically put up the ol’ tree?
