we decked the halls by candlelight and it was absolutely wonderful. so grateful ryan is home this christmas. xo
p.s. my best advice for decorating for christmas (stolen from my mom, like a lot of my nuggets of wisdom): for every decoration you put out, pack something away -- so other frames/bowls/vases. two reasons: your house doesn't all of the sudden look really cluttered and when you get them back out in the new year it's like having new things or seeing a long lost friend!
