Christmas Outdoor Decor

Happy, happy Friday friends! Can you believe we’re already 7 days into December? I’m pathetic but I actually start to get sad as Christmas gets closer because I don’t want it to end. How pathetic is that? Speaking of Christmas ending… Does anyone else despise December 26? If you’re ever on some crazy game show […]

Happy Friday! This week has been pretty tough with both of our pups having surgery but we’re getting through it and I’m excited to share something that has brought me joy throughout the week – our wreath-adorned Christmas porch.

Where You’ll Find Amazing Christmas Decor Inspiration

I mentioned on stories a couple of days ago that I’ve slowly but surely been picking up Christmas decor *gasp*.
