The right foot

As you could probably tell from my first post on this very lovely first day of December, it did not start out well.

In fact it was the very opposite of great.

And if you are my Facebook friend you know that it started with a temper tantrum that landed M in his room.



It sucked huge.

I really wanted to start December off right. It is such a busy month for our family with what seems like a kajillion birthdays as well as the holidays. I feel so fortunate that I am not working  for what may probably be my last December for a VERY long time so I really want to treasure this one. I had plans of snapping a photo per day and doing some sort of scrap/blog thing but tonight I decided that it wasn't in the cards. I don't have that much creative time and I don't want to feel the pressure of falling behind each day. So in my infinite wisdom I came up with a different plan.




I'm going to document my holiday home.

Gay right?

Okay so more specifically I was looking at all my decorations and ornaments and thinking about the sentimental value that they hold to me.  I want my kids to know why they were special to me because one day they will be theirs and I truly hope they treasure each and every one of them like I do.  Some of these ornaments move me to tears and others make me laugh uncontrollably.  I hope you enjoy their stories and maybe it will inspire you to do the same.

Here's to December starting off on the right foot.

Happy Holidays.



  1. Have I told you lately that I love you? This is an amazing idea. I wanna do it toooooooooo! That of course requires that I actually drag the tree and all the decorations/ornaments up from the basement where they are neatly and tightly packed away and actually PUT THE TREE UP. Ya not happening with our new family member... Maybe christmas eve. kidding. I can't wait to see and read all that you have to say. I'm sure there are going to be many good memories, giggles, and tears. xo

  2. What a sweet sentiment! I'm sure they'll treasure them just as you do.

  3. I think that's a great idea! I'm anxious to hear the stories behind the objects!
