welcome ho-ho-home

It might be cheesy or it might be sentimental, but I'm in love with the holiday season. In love.

I'm also in love with my husband, and he was out out of town for the first eleven days of the Christmas season. To welcome him back to chilly weather and holiday cheer, I decorated our home and planned a Christmas potluck. I also watched bad TV and ate like a bachelor.

We'll be spending much needed time with our families over the next few weeks, and it couldn't come soon enough. This will be the very first Christmas that I won't be waking up on Christmas morning at my grandparent's home. Instead, we're spending it with my husband's family and rumor has it that they have some wild traditions... like waking up at 3 am Christmas morning to open up presents! Is it true, Petajas?! Me, oh my. :)

What are your holiday plans, traditions, or recipes?

Also, here's a little Sneak Peek at our home during the holidays. It's been so much fun "nesting" this Christmas.

So amazingly lovely! You both are so fun, creative and just a joy to be with. Yes, we do get up at 3 a.m. because that is when Santa arrives in the great North! We are so looking forward to having you home. Thank you for sharing your home with us and it is so cozy and delightful. Hurry Home!!
