I’m writing from my newly decorated home tonight! I am so happy to finally be able to be in the Christmas spirit without everyone telling me it’s too early! It’s officially time!
I didn’t mind at all that while it was snowing at home this week, we had gorgeous sunny weather here in Georgia. It may not look like the season, but by golly I am making it happen.
The first thing that goes in place is a holiday OWL. It just isn’t my house if I can’t add an owl to the room for any given day of the year. I also bought a couple of special ornaments to spruce up our tree. For me a new owl, of course, and a squirrel for Tony because he has been so preoccupied with them this hunting season and they have just started reminding me of him.
Today was a case of “this store had this but they didn’t have this.” I managed to spend way more time (and way more money) than anticipated going from store to store to find just the right decorations. I have spent the last 3 years of Christmas at home so I haven’t had to decorate my own in a while! Thus the reason for getting lots of new things to make fresh new HOLIDAY memories with Tony!
He was so much help….said no one about their significant other, ever. I’m just kidding, he really did help and made the task so much more enjoyable…even thought he made me change the radio station every time a Christmas song started playing.
And here she is, our first Christmas tree as a couple. I am pretty excited about our stockings too. I hope you had a great first day of the season and didn’t waste too much of it in line for black Friday deals!
