Because I like to pretend I'm social (even if it's just virtually social), I wanted to particpate. The rest of this post will be a summary of what I've done around here in the way of holiday decorating. If you've been reading along for awhile, all of these photos are repeats! My apologies.
Welcome to our farmhouse!
Christmas lives in the living room.

Our fake mantel (fantel?).

A little bit spilled over to the banister.
And just a touch in the kitchen.
You've probably noticed that we're missing the most famous Christmas decoration of all...a tree!
We've chosen to not have a tree this year. And that's because I will be flying out of the province on Friday to go to Vancouver Island, BC to spend Christmas with my family. We didn't see the point of spending the money (I will always have a real one) and effort on a tree when I wasn't going to be around to enjoy it (and let's face it, Mike doesn't want to play babysitter when the cat and dog try to climb it).
I can't guarantee regularily scheduled content while I'm away (or even for the rest of this week, since I have a million things to do before I hit the airport). I think all will be fine, though, since people will be so busy with their own holiday schedules that they won't have time to pop by and read anyway!
In other news...Mike and I are now engaged. Hurrah! Let the planning and wedding focused Pinterest board begin!
