Every year our neighbor puts up this amazing light display in his yard. And every year I walk down to his house to take a picture. It is the happiest house in the neighborhood and it is pure joy.

Catching up with days 8-10 in my @decemberdaily album. I’m taking a little different approach this year and working on it in spurts. Partly because of necessity, but also partly because I’m just trying not to overthink it and make it harder than it needs to be (two of my very special talents). 😉

A Friday List!
1) If precipitation is going to fall from the sky in December I would prefer that is the frozen, flaky, fluffy kind rather than the wet, drizzly, hair-frizzing kind. ❄️
2) I ate salad last night and had a second thought about it. The same cannot be true about the obscene amount of @williamssonoma peppermint bark that I ate yesterday.🥬
3) If you have all of your gifts bought and wrapped, I'm not sure we can be friends. (just kidding...kinda) 🙈

Happy Friday friends!

A couple of weeks ago, as I was making my second trip from the car, schlepping the cumbersome bags of decorations down the stairs (pack mule style), I was seriously second-guessing my decision to put up a Christmas tree in our KC apartment. But walking in the door yesterday and seeing our space all lit up...well all I can say is #worthit.

More frosty morning magic. Like nature’s very own twinkle lights. 😊✨

And speaking of nature, this photo is completely inspired by Anna of @allnaturebyanna. I have been following her for several months now, and I am a huge fan of her work. Through her stunning macro photography, she has motivated me to use my macro lens more and seek out the little details that often go unnoticed.
*
Thank you Anna for sharing your inspired images. And thank you for giving me a renewed sense of wonder and magic.

Also, big shout out to @brandi_kincaid and @frecklepickle who inspired my stamped “7” overlay. It was so get messy and play! 😃

It’s Monday and my to-do list is long. But the sun is shining today and I’ve got lots of coffee! Oh…and twinkle lights…always the twinkle lights. 😉

Raise your hand if you sometimes turn on your Christmas tree lights during the day just because it makes you happy! 🙋🏼‍♀️

Also, I have managed to keep my poinsettias alive for two weeks now which might be my all time record. 😉

Happy Saturday friends!

Because the apple doesn’t fall from the tree. 😉

In all seriousness though, it wasn’t all that long ago, when @kelseyish was getting ready to graduate from high school, that I was sure that the best years of my life were coming to a close. And that the holidays would lose some (if not all) of their magic without having my only child at home.

Fast forward eight years. Sitting at the kitchen table with my girl while she worked on her @decemberdaily album…well, all I can say is that it feels like a very full-circle kind of moment. And a very magical one at that. ❤️

I’m catching up in my @decemberdaily album this week! {swipe left}

Day 4 was totally inspired by @aliedwards stamped overlay she shared recently. Feeling like a stamping goddess right about now. 😂

Yesterday was my first full day back at home, so there was a lot of catching up to do. Work, laundry, litter box, grocery store…you know…ordinary life stuff.
*
Later in the afternoon I took Daisy for a walk down to the park, and when we got back, all of our Christmas lights had come on. Walking up the sidewalk and seeing our tree all lit up from the inside gave me a giant warm fuzzy. So of course I had to take a picture of it.
*
It wasn’t until I uploaded it into my computer last night that I noticed the peeling paint around the windows at which point I just sort of laughed to myself. But the more I played around with my photo, the more I came to appreciate the other little details like the wavy glass, the reflection of the bare trees, the glimpse of the ornaments. This photo tells the story of Christmas at home. ❤️

P.S. Today on my blog I am sharing five of my favorite ways to capture the light and magic of my Christmas tree (you can find the link in my profile). As always, thank you for letting me share my holiday magic with you.
