Welcome to our brand spanking new blog! We’ve been working on this for awhile now because we wanted our blog to reflect our brand and be consistent with our website, and this is what came out of that. We hope you like it! Alright, now that that’s out of the way we can get to the good stuff!
As I may or may not have mentioned before, and will probably mention again, this time of year has always been one of my favorites. I love the lights, the smell of holiday cooking, and all of the festive music…I love it all. As a kid I would sleep in the family room so that I could watch the twinkling lights on the Christmas tree and listen to Christmas carols as I fell asleep. There was just something about this season that was so happy and comforting. As I have grown older, that love of this time of year has not abated in the least. I think if Amanda would let me I would probably still fall asleep to flashing Christmas lights and music.
Our tree has been up now for a little over a week, we had put it up and put the lights on, but had neglected to finish decorating it until now. So we just put all of the ornaments on, with Christmas music blaring I might add, but I think it just needs a little something more…do you know what that means? It means we get to run to the store today and find more fun tree accessories!
