Last night I got to go home for the first time for a few hours.  This is a big step, means I’m on the mend enough to be discharged :)  My handsome Fletcher is doing great too but still has a little while in the NICU, so I’m keeping a room at the hospital to be with him.  Your prayers have been working – thank you SO much for the overwhelming response.  Meant the world to Josh and me to read through all the messages.

When we got home last night I immediately teared up to see that Josh and Lilly have been quite busy decorating our home for the the holidays – my favorite time of year.  He really did a good job and has quite a bit of our decor up (and actually looking really good!).  I won’t be taking the time to take pictures of it this year, but I thought I might pull a post from my archives so you could get an idea of what it looks like.  This is the holiday decor tour I shared last year.  Hope you enjoy!


All of my favorite bloggers are sharing their holiday decorations, and so I figure I will share mine too.  I gave you a sneak peak of my bathroom last week (thank you for so many sweet messages!!)… 

And now I’m finally ready to share the rest of my seasonal decor as well.  It’s my favorite time of year, so I love to have a cozy home with a lot of festive touches throughout.

I’ll admit, I’m very much so a wreath kinda girl :)  This year I hung all of my wreaths by a brown and white striped ribbon.  Love how it pulls them all together.

This cabinet contains some of my very favorite Christmas decorations, like my santa collection that was passed down to me from my grandpa.

And this painting that my 1 year old daughter painted at grandma’s house.  LOVE.

I used some of the left over ribbon to wrap up a small stack of books.

And I just got these Kelly Wearstler stockings from Plum Cushion.  Thanks for the tip, Traci!  Absolutely adore these!!

My husband and I picked up this Santa print by Gaye Sanders Fisher during an art walk downtown a couple of years ago.  

Here are a few more of my holiday touches.

And lastly, in Lilly’s room we put Josh’s old Christmas tree and ornaments from when he was a little boy.  It plays music while slowly spinning around.  I’m so glad his parents saved it.

I hope you enjoyed the look around.  For as much work as one puts into decorating their home for a month or so this time of year, it feels good to get to share it with others.  Happy Holidays my friends :)
