{ it's beginning to look a lot like... }

Hi everyone...welcome back to a new and exciting week. Thank you all for sending your birthday wishes to Bella. It was a whirlwind of a weekend and I look forward to sharing details of Little One's birthday shindig with you later this week.

With the party behind us, I can now focus on our holiday decorating..yay! Don't you just love pulling out your holiday storage boxes and rediscovering all of your favorite holiday goodies again? I like to keep it simple... white twinkle lights, candles, and touches of silver and gold. I've also sprinkled in subtle blues and greens the last couple of years. 

Check out these inspired takes on holiday decorating...
