Decorating for the Holiday Season

The weather has been dreary all week with rain and now cooler temperatures, so I feel like winter is well on it's way. It sort of feels like we skipped right over fall, but that's probably me just being dramatic. To go along with the chilly weather, I got the itch to do a little decorating around the blog.  
It's still a work in progress and I'm not in love with certain little parts (like the social media buttons), so don't get too use to this look. 
Suddenly today, I got this burst of energy to create and redesign.  First, it was my living room. You know, completely normal redesigning… like trying to arrange the furniture to accommodate a nonexistent Christmas tree, in October. 
I love the holidays, but I am not one to rush through fall to get to Christmas. I normally cringe when I see Christmas commercials come on so early or hear 'Jingle Bells' anytime before December. However, this year feels different. I'm ready to skip fall and dive right into winter. 
As I'm typing this, I realize that my desire to skip fall this year might be my subconscious wanting to ignore my fall birthday (the big 3-0). Whatever the reason, I'm ready. Ready for the snow (even if it's only a dusting) + ready for boots + ready for scarfs and lots of layers + ready to celebrate lots of winter holidays with our family of 4.

Are you ready for winter already?

  1. I wasn't until I read your blog! Now you have me longing for cooler weather....

  2. Okay, clearly you don't live in Canada, haha. We dread winter because it means 4 feet of snow and digging your car out of a snowbank for 20 minutes each morning. I want autumn to last forever! hahaha. I do love Christmas though :)

  3. i don't think i could hand christmas music for more than one month.. as much as i love it.. i hate to prematurely start it.. and then get sick of it mid holiday season. :P 30 is not so bad.. at least that is what i keep telling myself.

  4. Quinn, your new design looks so lovely! I am also already in the holiday spirit--I started listening to Christmas music last week and also started Christmas crafting (don't judge :). I admit, this is crazy early for me but when the crafting bug bites I can't ignore it. I can't wait to see all the fun things you accomplish this year! Plus, you now have the best excuse to watch 13 Going on 30 (not that I ever need an excuse to watch that movie)!

  5. It seems like fall took it time to arrive here too. I love warm weather and I know I'll be begging for spring once winter arrives, so I'm trying to savor this cool fall weather, but I can't wait for the chance of snow!
