Merry Christmas from Style & the Suburbs

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!

Meaningful Gift Ideas

With the holiday season approaching, you’ve probably started thinking about the gifts you’ll be giving loved ones this year. With all of the deals and sales, it’s hard not to get wrapped up in the hype of buying all of the stuff!
