While I'm not a huge fan of cold, snow, and dreary weather, I have to say that decorating for Christmas definitely brings cheer to this lady! Something about the white lights, fires in the fireplace, pinecones, and jingle bells makes the weather bearable. Not to mention drinking hot cocoa (with mounds of marshmallows, of course) from a cute snowflake mug!
Here are some of our decorations. We had to do things a little simpler this year, thanks to having a toddler, but I kind of like it.
