With 44 days until Christmas, Tis the Season to be Jolly! This is my favorite time of year, and decorating our home for the holidays brings me so much joy. No, you are not seeing things. Yes, we have already put up our Christmas tree thanks to the awesome folks at Treetopia. I have to admit this is our first artificial Christmas tree. I have secretly wanted one for years. There is no mess, our allergies do not act up like they do with a real tree, and the ornaments actually stay on the branches! But the most exciting part is the lights. Oh, the lights. How many times have you put strand after strand of lights on your tree, until you just can’t put another one on. You step back, plug in the lights, and realize you need about 10 more strands. Thank you Treetopia for doing the work for me, and quite beautifully at that.

Along with our beautiful Balsam Spruce, they also were kind enough to include a gorgeous pine wreath and garland. We have never put a wreath above our mantel before. I can see now, that it will be there year after year. The wreath twinkles and lights up the room. It just looks like it’s made for that spot. The wreath hangs easily on the picture hook that was already there. For the garland, we placed a nail right below the molding and centered the garland from there.
We also draped the garland above our built-in shelves, which, I believe, adds the final touch.
I am completely in the holiday spirit now. Around here, we love traditions. We almost pulled out Christmas Vacation to watch last night. We held off, but will probably watch it within the next couple of weeks. At least I will anyway. It’s my all-time favorite holiday movie. Elf is a close second!
