I am so far behind on everything Christmas-related this year.
I know people say to relax and enjoy the season, but it’s just not me to let things slide. In order to enjoy, I need to be on top of my game. That means that by now I should have the cards out, the presents purchased, and the decorations up.
I’m about 20% there. (Translation = I’m a total stress case right now.)
Over the weekend we got some decorating finished (including outdoor lights, which my poor husband had to set up in 18 degree weather and a snowstorm), so it’s feeling kind of merry around here.
One of the areas in my home lucky enough to be touched with some Christmas spirit was the mantel. This year I went with a rustic chic theme (it’s not a woodland theme, mom!), in the living room, and here’s how that played out on my mantel.
