Simple has been my motto for Christmas decorations the last few years. Last year, I was 50% effaced and 2 cm dilated two and a half weeks before Christmas and, because I worked right up until then, I had to punch it into high gear to get the house decorated in case she arrived early. I wanted a festive homecoming for baby girl, who ended up making her debut two days after Christmas, so I went all out with fresh greens, simple garlands, bowls of clementines, strings of white lights, berry sprigs and all my favorite ornaments. Simple, yet perfectly cozy and lovely. This year, with a mobile little one with a penchant for all things glittery and shiny (just like her momma!), I focused on the tree and mantle, keeping treasured pieces waist high or above to avoid temptation! Before my greens completely dry up, here are a few snippets of what Christmas looks like around my house this year:
And I can't forget a shot of this little one, who loves the Christmas lights as much as her momma:
