When I hear of Christmas decoration sales, I go a little crazy in the head. And then I start to think about what things I am still in dire need of to decorate our home. I hung a Christmas wreath weeks ago but haven't liked how it looked hanging outside. It was almost shameful to unlock my door and see it hanging there, lifelessly. I avoided eye contact with it, just to make myself feel a little better about owning such an insufficient piece of holiday greenery.
So when I discovered a Christmas sale at Michael's, I sped on over (except in the school zones, mind you). And I found it. The perfect, substantial Christmas wreath that is now proudly displayed at the entrance to our house. The glitter glitters. The fake snow crystals glisten. The pine cones are pine-coney! And I love the natural look of the wreath. NOW I feel ready for Christmas! Which, by the way, is happening at our house this evening. We are traveling to Utah tomorrow to spend the holidays with my family, so John and I are opening presents tonight. He is making me wait until AFTER we watch White Christmas. I honestly don't know if I can make it that long!
Pictures forthcoming tomorrow of our Christmas extravaganza! In the meantime, I am headed outside to drool at my perfect Christmas Wreath. It doesn't take much to make me happy!
