Tonight I took down all my Christmas decorations and my Christmas tree. It's amazing how warm and inviting a house feels when there are Christmas decorations up. The soft glow from the lights on the tree, the twinkle of the ornaments as the light hits them, the beloved stockings hanging on the fireplace.....Now my house feels more open and less decorated. Kinda sad, I miss the Christmas decor!
I also meant to buy Christmas lights after the holidays since they would be on sale...but never got around to it. Guess I'll have to wait till next year.
