I hope you are all feeling the holiday bliss decorating your homes for the fast approaching festivities. I have been very busy tidying up and making room for all of the Christmas goodies that I sprinkle about and making me happy just to look at them.
The outside of our home is full of lights and festive colours that overshadow the death of my beloved gardens and live colour.
The inside is a much slower process. We have many styles of décor to choose from as we have collected holiday décor for many years and throughout these we have updated many times. I happen to love the traditional red, white and metallic.
The past 2 years we have gone with a crazy lime, purple and red scheme that showcases our love of Dr. Suess and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. We have tons of Grinches that take on many forms and they are scattered thorough out our home.
This year I think we will be going with a combination of both. The brighter colours have been fun, but I miss our time treasured ornaments and have decided to incorporate them this year.
I will be taking a day off this week and doing the majority of the inside. As we always have a real tree, this will have to wait a couple of weeks, they dry out far too quickly to purchase it now. I love the scent of real greenery and it does make it seem a bit more authentic.
Anyway, I am attempting to squeeze in a bit of physical activity everyday as I know from previous years that this season is a real energy zapper. I, unfortunately was taken down the past 7 days with a bug that just knocked me out, so I am drinking tons of water with lemon and ginger, moving more and just trying to get as much colour into my diet as possible to get a leg up.
Take extra care of yourselves and have fun getting ready for family and friends.
The next 25 days are going to be a whirlwind of shopping, socializing, decorating, baking, cooking and just plain fun.
Enjoy it all!!
