We made it! Weekend before Christmas. I can’t believe it’s really here. I’m so excited to relax and spend time with my family this holiday season. After a few more late night wrapping sessions. ;) Today I’m joining a group of fun blog friends for our annual Night Lights Christmas Tour hosted by Rachel at Maison De Pax. If you are visiting today from Kristen’s fun blog Ella Claire hello and welcome! So happy to have you over! I hope you’ll kick off your shoes, get comfortable and stay awhile. Pj’s are a must at my house. :)
Come in come in!
I took too many pictures (old habits die hard) so I’ll try to keep the chit chat to a minimum! This is our formal living room and it’s the first room you see when you walk in the door. (Pics and all sources for this room are here.)
One picture from last year because I forgot to take one of my Christmas gallery wall this year!
This is our family room and you can find more pictures and sources here.
A favorite Christmas picture of my youngest a couple of years ago. :)
Most people are dreaming of a white Christmas. All week my girls and I have been singing “we’re dreaming.. of a cloudy Christmas..” That’s about all we need here in southern Cal to feel the Christmas spirit. Some cloud cover and lights on the palm trees. Well.. that and air conditioning. For when it’s 70 degrees outside but we turn the fireplace on anyway.
I like my house at night best when it’s full of people.
Especially when the people are wearing Christmas pj’s. :)
This year I decorated a tree in my bedroom!
We have enjoyed the cozy lights in this space so much this month. I’m excited to share the rest of this room in the New Year!
Last year’s staircase. Some of my favorite night lights.
And last year’s dining room because I never got around to sharing this years! So many pictures.. not enough days. ;)
Addison’s bedroom. You can see more pics in my last post.
She did such a good job decorating her first tree. :)
Our mudroom is another space that feels extra cozy at night with the tree lights on.
I love seeing this little tree through the dutch door outside.
Christmas night lights are the best aren’t they!? In your home or in the community. They just make everything feel special.
I’m signing off for the weekend to spend some time with this crew! I’m so grateful for them and for everything about this season. I’m also incredibly grateful for all of you! For the continual love and support you show me and my blog. I’ve been blogging for 10 years now and this community feels like family. I can’t thank you all enough for that sweet friends. It truly means so much to me.
It’s a Wonderful Life! If you need me over the weekend I’ll be parked in front of this movie. With my best Christmas pajamas on of course. :)
Next stop on the tour is Aniko’s fun blog (Place of my Taste). Enjoy everyone! And Merry Christmas! XO
Be sure to visit all the gorgeous homes lit up for the holidays!
