Welcome to my Christmas home tour! I always enjoy decorating for Christmas, but this year I’ve been dreaming and planning about it since early fall. At the end of the post you’ll see the video tour – it’s a short 5 minute video with a few extra peeks that didn’t make it into the post!
A word about seasons – during this season of my life I am blessed with plenty of time to decorate my home to my heart’s content. That’s not always been the case. In 2010 I only put up a few decorations because my wedding was the week before Christmas! In 2012, we had only been in our new house a few weeks – I put up a few simple decorations and kept unpacking boxes. The Christmas of 2014 I was working full time at a very busy retail job and came home physically worn out every day. This year I’m only working part time, so I took my time and decorated until I was satisfied!
Life is an experience in seasons. If you’re in a season with little ones who keep you busy, an elderly parent who requires lots of care or a job that sends you home with an aching back or frazzled brain at the end of the day – take heart. If this season isn’t the one for intense decorating, another season will be!
