Christmas Home Tour

Being that our house has been decorated for Christmas for nearly a month now, I thought it was time to show off a few bits and pieces [or like a thousand bits and pieces] of our home during the Holidays. Decorating this house for Christmas is always going to make me laugh a little bit because it wasn't until we decorated last year after moving in that I fell in love with our house. Up until that point, I would cry regularly because nothing about it felt like home. BAM, the Christmas trees went up and I never wanted to leave the place and the feeling hasn't left since. I'm pretty confident that this is the only reason my husband allowed the decor to go up so early once again "BUT IT'S THE WHOLE REASON WHY I LOVE OUR HOUSE SO MUCH!!!" Tears or ornaments, take your pick. 

Without further ado, I present to you the jolly ole Schrader casa, starting with the kitchen and dining area...

I love this space so much mostly because there is room to put a smaller tree in it - this tree we decorate with all of the ornaments that my aunt has given to us over the years [she owns an ornament shop which is fun!]. It's my favorite tree to decorate as each year's ornaments are a reminder of something from that year - I love reminiscing over what each ornament means when putting this tree together..such a fun tradition that I hope never stops. The light up tree skirt from Ikea also doesn't hurt on the whole making me happy scale.

Next up, the "outdoor" room - my favorite place to chill in the house.

We will travel down the hallway to get to the living room...fa la la la la, la la la la la...

And finally, we have arrived.

The best part about Christmas decor though? The magic of the lights at night...#drool

Merry Christmas to all, and to all..a good night :)

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
