Just about every 12 months I start out off solid on my Christmas decorating, then every single 12 months I really feel like items slide a tiny flat. I Like Christmas – it is always my beloved time of year. But each individual 12 months when I decorate, I are inclined to start out feeling a very little shy.
Here’s why: My residence isn’t “blogger best.” Considerably from it. I have a little bit of envy for all those bloggers who live in large, previous, lovely farmhouses. I see them all decorated up to the nines with wreaths and greenery and bows. All that trim and woodwork and yummy facts – oh my!
Our property is whole of adore and pleasure and recollections. It’s the fantastic backdrop for the tale of our lives. This is the place I grew up. It’s exactly where my children improve up. It’s where by my grandkids come to see Gigi & Papa (which is us!)
It is wherever we check out way as well lots of flicks, consume way far too numerous cookies – and even spill a glass of sweet tea at least once a day. (Luckily our rug handles all we toss at it!)
But on people days when I’m sensation a little bit unimpressive, I just have to recall that it is not about in which you dwell, it is about HOW you live.
When you consider about the reason for this season, then all these trees, ornaments, greenery & this sort of don’t definitely matter a lot in the grand plan of items. Simply because I’m really confident none of it existed in that stable all people many years back.
Whilst it does make me mad content to wake up in a location that is all very with baubles and bows, it is good to remember that even however I come to feel a bit “less than” mainly because our double extensive will never ever have that really banister included with beautiful greenery, we do have a residence we adore.
And it reflects the easy daily life we appreciate. Just one devoid of tons of upkeep. Or tons of cleaning. Or tons of things to make it cozy.
Due to the fact a completely uncomplicated lifestyle is very best kind, don’t you think?
My ideal good friend Angie is getting a simple kinda Xmas, way too! So make confident you prevent by and see her household!
