Hi friends! Yes, this is a current picture. No holiday decor – yet (and I’m pretty sure that I make this confession each year) I’m a last minute, minimalist kind of gal. I know it. My family knows it. I’m at peace with it.
To please the natives, we will have a tree by Sunday evening – just on the other side of that ottoman at which time I may feel the spirit and proceed to hang twinkly lights, a wreath on the door and maybe some holly on the hearth. And stockings. Oh and the family ornaments – love those.
But Christmas music must be playing to make these things come to fruition. (and maybe a nice glass of merlot) Pretty sure I’m a holiday Scrooge hold out until I hear music and then I cry – but only if I try to sing along.
Clearly I adore Christmas – just not the stuff and the early-ness of it all…which leads me to a question for you.
I’ll be leaving tomorrow morning for Charlotte to help my sister ready mom’s house as we (finally) sold it. I’ll also be attending a wedding on Saturday so, “Yay for both!”
Here’s my question for you…
What kind of holiday decorator are you? Minimalist (and late) like me, or are you an all in kind of girl? And does Christmas music make you cry, too?
