I recently shared my holiday mantle decorations, but finally got around to decorating the rest of my home for Christmas! Getting a tree is one of my favorite parts of the season, even though its extra work and sometimes a huge mess! The first year that I got a live tree, I didn’t know to make a fresh cut at the bottom of it, and it completely dried out before Christmas. If you so much as touched it, a bunch of needles came falling down!
Now I’ve learned my lesson to make a fresh cut and to make sure it always has a lot of water (hydration is key for you and your Christmas tree!). I also finally got around to decorating my kitchen! I like adding a little bit of holiday cheer to each room in the house to make it feel special– especially now that we’re spending so much time at home!
This year, it seems widely accepted that everyone wants to decorate for the holidays early. I love scrolling social media and seeing everyone’s cheerful and happy spaces. For my holiday decor this year, I wanted to ensure it felt really bright and special, especially now that I spend most of my time at home!
I am excited to kick off the holiday week by wishing you all a Merry Christmas! I hope you get some time this week to relax, recharge, and spend some time with loved ones. If it’s been a hard year for you, I’m sending you my positive thoughts for better times ahead.
This week, I am looking forward to taking much needed time away from work, spending some time alone getting some quality running in, and spending time with my family and nephew for his first Christmas. As you know, I absolutely love decorating for Christmas, and I’m already dreading having to take the decorations down! I thought I would share my tree decorations from this year before it starts to drop all of its needles!

One of my favorite days of the year is when I decorate my christmas mantle. I try to do a little different look each year, and it’s always fun to pull it all together. This year, I felt like we didn’t have a fall season, so I tried to hold out as long as possible, but still ended up decorating in mid-november.
This year, I went for a more colorful and whimsical theme, instead of the more traditional look that I normally have.
