:: Finally found a wreath! I usually like to make them however I was running out of time and purchased this one – I enjoy the fruits on it, something I’ve never done before::
The final days before Christmas and it’s finally sinking in – the excited, joyous Christmas feeling! Family is arriving tomorrow on both sides and then its officially time to relax. I love how at this time of year, everyone seems to take a step back and enjoy the little things – although I’ve been off work for the last little while with little miss Stella we’re super excited to have A around us for a couple days and be off of work. Merry Christmas everyone!
:: Hand delivered gifts from my friend Pepper B, she’s the cutest ::
:: We have a mantle, yay! Now, if you have seen instagram, you’d know that I gave many plans for this mantle in the New Year but for this year, I plan on just being happy with the fact that I have one ::
:: My little Mackie looking sweet ::
:: The most decadent Fresh soaps which I LOVE and are also great stocking stuffers if you’re a super last minute shopper ::

It’s the week before Christmas and I’m feeling almost sad that we’re this close! This year I’ve been a little behind in getting the house decorated, completing Christmasy tasks (like baking cookies) and I have yet to attend a Christmas party (aside from the Elsie and Kel dinner Laura and I indulged in). At the same time, I have so much to be happy about and am thankful for including Stella’s first Christmas, instilling some new family traditions, Laura and my first year of business and family that is traveling all the way from Australia to be together this year. So more focusing on what’s good and less on what’s not there.
I’ve been a blogger and reader of blogs for many years and for some reason, this year is a first for me in catching these amazing Christmas Home Tours. It’s always amazing to see people’s different approach to this season and I especially fell in love with one home in particular that belongs to the home of designer Sarah Walker was so impeccably done for the holidays, I’m in love. Her mantle has given me some serious inspo for mine and I appreciate the subtly of it all. Super classy and less in your face – enjoy!
