Christmas is coming and will be here in 27 days! And why am I already feeling behind? It makes no sense as I started planning a month ago!
Thanks for joining me for Sunday morning coffee. Today I am sharing my weekly thoughts about entertaining, decor, crafts, and recipes, and Christmas is coming!
A Little Bit About Me
Guess who is going on vacation tomorrow?
Our entire family!
For quite some time now I have wanted to take our family on a vacation to a warm destination. I tried to plan something earlier but schedules and travel restrictions just got in the way.
So tomorrow morning the six of us are heading to Hawaii for a week!
Doesn’t that sound wonderful?
We are all very excited and are looking forward to some relaxation, playing golf, swimming in the ocean, and just taking it easy.
Of course, I am working like crazy before we go to get all of my blog posts done and scheduled. So while I am sitting on the beach you will still see lots of new Christmas inspiration here on my blog!
Christmas is Coming
Twenty-seven days. Oh my.
I am still decorating. That’s because one half of my house was decorated for fall and the other half has been decorated for Christmas. For quite some time.
Why? I am still new to the crazy world of blogging and can’t quite eat a Thanksgiving dinner in a room filled with Christmas decor! So half and half it is.
I know I haven’t talked about it but we are having a small Christmas party this year and I have a bit of planning to do for that. Throw in a week of vacation and well, it’s going to be very crazy around here!
So wish me luck. I definitely need it.
