Christmas Time Is Here

Yo, shame me now, but being straight here – Jay and I have never decorated the house for Christmas. Knowing us, it’s probably because we were unpacking from one of our many moves, but this year we finally felt settled enough to spread some Christmas cheer.

I’m so, so glad we did. I love coming home and turning on the lights and I love sitting in our living room and just basking in the soft glow of the tree. It’s absolute perfection.

We decided to keep the tree simple this year, and just used a bunch of gold ornaments I paid a few bucks for a few days after last Christmas.

It sparkles ever so nicely at night.

Last year I also got these stockings at World Market. I LOVE them, and I love that I thought to get extras for our kiddos. Certainly did not know last year that kiddo #1 would be well on his way to us!

Traditional Christmas Stocking

I love these stockings though because they’re simple and understated and they look so stinking nice up on our mantle. I’m in love.

Our living room is my favorite place now! I’m not sure if we’ll ever take it all down I love it so much! 😀 Can’t wait until next year when I can sit in here with a baby that’s out of my belly with a glass of wine in hand. 15 more weeks people, it’s coming!
