Today is the best day of the year. The day we celebrate Christ’s birth with those we love.
This is Matt & I’s 2016 Christmas photo. I’m so very blessed with a talented hubby that can manage to singlehandedly take such an amazing photo on his own! We shot this while in Whistler over our Thanksgiving vacation. We had such a lovely long weekend there.
I’ve been back in LA since the second weekend in December and I’ve been a busy little bee prepping the house for Christmas. I’m sure you’ve noticed that I haven’t been as active on my blog and socials as I normally am, and I apologize about that… But I wanted to take a bit of a breather during our Christmas break at home, to just slow down and enjoy the season.
Once we get passed the holidays, and back into January, I’ll pick up with my normal posting schedule. For now, I’m just enjoying my much needed time with my hubby.
We snapped a few photos of our holiday decor to share with you, and give you a sneak peak into our home during the Christmas holiday…
My mom flew out to LA last week and helped me put the finishing touches on my Christmas decor, including the gorgeous ribbon on my tree. You can’t see in the photos, but I finally found my off-white faux fur tree skirt that I’ve been looking for several years for! The skirt sold out, but here’s the link in case you want to see it.
I made this Noel sign 5 years ago after seeing a similar one on Pinterest. It’s one of my favorite Christmas decorations.
Our family room is my favorite room of the house. Our Christmas decor is so beautiful in this room. My mom bought me this mini flocked tree and garland two years ago and I love it so much. My cousin, mom & I decorated my mantel and it’s such a beautiful space in our home.
Matt has been talking about retro bubble lights for years, so this year I found some online and surprised him! We added them to the garland and they’re just such a fun festive touch.
Matt & I spent Christmas Eve doing our favorite traditions together. We had a wonderful Christmas Day filled with presents and food in our cozy home. I prepared our favorite Christmas dinner and now we’re getting ready to end the day by watching, “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
I hope that you had a relaxing Christmas with your family and friends filled with lots of love, happiness and good food. My hope is that you were able to cherish the moments with those you love and were able to remember the true reason why we celebrate this very special holiday.
I’m sending lots of love to my Gorgeous Fam on this Christmas Day! I’m so thankful to have each and every one of you as a part of my virtual family.
Please leave a comment below and let me know what your favorite Christmas tradition is! I love learning about other holiday traditions from around the country, and around the world.
