Merry, Merry … Life Lately!

Merry, Merry ... Life Lately!

Hey friends! Well, I didn’t do an official Christmas tour or get this post out before Christmas. I thought I might get to it, but alas, I didn’t quite make that happen. Yet, we had a wonderful and relaxed holiday with our family! And that’s what matters most!

Just focusing on being present made the past few days so memorable.

I made lots of good food (including gluten-free and vegan , yum!).

The cousins and grandpa played board games ( and ).

Our lil’ family watched home movies from when our kids were little.

We went to a Christmas Eve church service and drove through Candy Cane Lane in Seattle to see festive Christmas lights.

We all curled up on our sectional downstairs and watched the Christopher Robin movie! It was the sweetest, we just loved it. Jack loved it, too.

We still have family here, so we will be spending a little more time being present and hanging out for the next couple of days. But tomorrow I’ll be back here to show you a super simple change in our home that made me happy! And I cannot wait to hop back into sharing more about my new book, sharing my plans and house goals for this year, and some other things I’ve had on my list to talk about at the start of the year!

Enjoy these peeks at our family Christmas, and I’ll see you tomorrow, friends!

Christmas Style Inspiration + Gift Guides
Hello, friends! Who is feeling festive? I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I’ve been seeing Christmas decor all over Instagram and trees on all the cars in Seattle. We are a little behind the times at our house, so the photo above is from last year, but we have been listening to Christmas tunes all weekend so that’s a start! :) And today we brought out the first of our Christmas decor, so we’ll be festive here in no time.

I have a couple things to share today that will hopefully help or inspire you (and me!).

First off, if you’re looking for a great wreath, Christmas tree, tree skirt, decorations or other seasonal item, we have an ADORABLE shop you can find by clicking HERE or the banner below.

And last but not least, what’s your Christmas style?

We keep it pretty simple at our house. But my goal is to never try to keep things so minimal during the holidays that we don’t even sense the wonder of Christmas in our home. I always try to see Christmas through the eyes of a child (even though we don’t have little people around any more!) so that often makes me bring out a little more sparkle or special decor than I might otherwise. But you know what? That magic invites us all get in the Christmas spirit.

Have you seen our Christmas videos from the past two years?
