Now… it IS beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


Now that it is December I am officially ready to start thinking about Christmas. I took time to reflect on how much I have to be thankful for, and now I can focus on the reason of the season.

I love Christmas.

I started collecting pink Christmas ornaments sometime in college. I knew one day I would have my own Christmas tree and I have always envisioned a pink tree with white lights and a green tree skirt.

Pink and green are my favorite colors.

Lucky for me Matt didn’t object to my oober girly tree.

My mom also made a wreath for my door to match the theme of the tree.

I have plans to make an ornament ball wreath, but it might not happen until next year. We shall see.

The best part about where our tree goes is that you can basically see all 360 degrees of the tree. Which is good because I have a TON of ornaments.

I showed you some of my favorites but there are tons more that I love!!

We are also celebrating Hanukkah right now. Wednesday night we had a 3 way call with Matt’s parents in Miami and his sister in Atlanta and we all lit the candles together. Matt and I were gone for the weekend but we resumed the lighting of the candles Sunday night and tonight. I love it. I am trying to learn the Hebrew so I can say the blessings to0, but I am a pretty slow learner I guess. Maybe next year I will get it down!

  1. i love that wreath too. i made an ornament ball wreath a few years ago, actually I've made two, one with plastic ornaments and one with glass ornaments. My advice - use plastic! The glass didn't fair too well and the balls started to shatter, not a good situation!

  2. I love your tree!!! My girls would love to decorate a tree like that. But my husband would never go for it. :) Thanks for sharing!
