If you know me in the real world outside of the internet, you know that Christmas is my thing. No, like it’s my thhhhiiinnnnggg. I’m that crazy Christmas lady. Those Christmas dog pjs you see above? I’ve been wearing them nearly every night since my mother gifted them to me back in November.
I really can’t even say what it is that sparked my love for the holiday because honestly, I think it is the love that surrounds the holiday that puts me on cloud nine. As a child, I remember my mom taking us to ride through nearby neighborhoods to look at Christmas lights and I vividly remember my little sister getting up in the middle of the night to play with all of the toys from Santa before going back to bed and pretending like nothing had happened (why wasn’t I that smart??), but what I really remember is traveling to see family. My family has always lived at least 8 hours away from us so holidays were our big opportunities to travel down to the south and see everyone. The long trips aren’t what stuck in mind, only the memories of Christmas Eve mass, all of the cousins, amazing food, and just hanging out with one another, not worrying about responsibilities like work or school.
This year has been absolutely insane for business (and I’ll write more about that later), but it’s also been a whirlwind in my personal life (I’ll write more about that later as well 😉 ), so I can’t help but be thrilled for this incredible season of rest, of smiles, and of love with my sweet loved ones and friends.
Back to my Crazy Christmas Lady act… enjoy a few photos from my home! This year was a lot of fun getting to decorate my new little house, but it truly felt complete once I began receiving Christmas cards from my clients. I absolutely adore seeing my work in print.
Merry Christmas to everyone near and far! I hope 2017 has been a beautiful year for you as well <3 Love,
