This year, I simplified our Christmas decor and only used things I already had from previous years for my #HolidayHousewalk Tour. (With the exception of some green balls, fresh greenery and a couple small DIY decor projects). I invested the money I saved in to a pair of chairs for my dining room, something we’ve been wanting for a while and can enjoy year round.❤️🌲❤️

Do you prefer an open layout floor plan or a more separated one? I’m split down the middle. I like an open flow for the main areas but separate rooms with specific uses too! Here you can see the one area of our home that is “open”. Our kitchen with the mud room entrance off the garage and then our living room.
I photographed the house today with my CAMERA, not my phone! And I’m working on my Christmas Home Tour. It will be on the blog December 1st, that’s my goal anyway! .
Two years ago I had just began blogging. I had NO clue what I was doing but I knew I loved this industry! I knew of @jenniferrizzodesigncompany 's Holiday Housewalk and had always dreamt of being a part of it. And you guys... this particular year, I was invited!! 🙌🏻 I was nervous and naive and a newbie but I was so excited and so very honored! I had my all so amazing sister and brother in law come and take pics. 🙌🏻 I prepared, I decorated, I was ready, and guess what? My power went out! (For hours and hours due to heavy snow. All I could do was cry, and cry and cry.) And then we laughed and braved it up, air dried hair and all! Today when I look back the memory of that day is one of my all time favorites. Despite that fact that not a single light was on. Isn't it ironic how life works itself out? ✨🙌🏻 #holidayhousewalk PHOTOGRAPHY BY @tandsphoto
It is December 1st, and we are officially done decorating for Christmas indoors! 🙌🏻💕😅 I feel so relaxed as I lay here snuggling with my family, watching Christmas movies, to the soft glow of the trees. It was a lot of hard work prepping early, but it definitely paid off now that we can sit back, kick up our feet and enjoy the most wonderful season of all! We're the last stop on today's #holidayhousewalk tour and would love for you to come on over to the blog and let us know what you think! Thank you for all the love on our picture this morning, it means so much!! 💕 Happy December, friends! Girls gorgeous outfits are from @joyfolie. ✨ photo by @tandsphoto
