December is my favorite month of the year! I love decorating for Christmas, listening to carols, baking yummy treats, and lighting delicious smelling candles all month long! Growing up, my mother always made the holidays a big deal and transformed the entire house into a Christmas wonderland. She still does to this day and it makes going home at this time of year extra special. Even though we don't have a home of our own yet, I still want to make our little apartment cozy and warm, decorated with holiday cheer!
Last weekend we ventured out to find a tree, and London was having SO much fun examining each one. She's so curious! We loved decorating it with lights, ornaments (on the top half, since London keeps pulling them off!), and the star on the top. Every morning for the past week, we come downstairs and turn the lights on and she gets so excited. Her excitement always reminds me of the beauty and magic of Christmas. We have the perfect red brick fireplace to hang our Pottery Barn stockings, and we found some really cute Target items to complete our mantle and dining room decorations. You can find all of the details below.
