christmas around here

Christmas is my (and Matt's)  favorite time of year. It's just such a happy time! I love driving around town and seeing Christmas lights and listening to Christmas music. Everyone is just so loving during this time.
This year is our first Christmas being married! We put Christmas decorations up on November 1st--we have our own place now, so we make the rules :). We don't have a Christmas tree this year, so I decided to make up for it by making a wreath.
I made that stinkin' bow. It's much harder than it looks, at least it was for me

Well, this is the last full week before finals, and then we're flying home to Colorado in a couple weeks for Christmas! I can't wait! 


  1. I found you through GFC link party. You have such a sweet and warm blog! I just kept catching myself reading post after post.

  2. The bow is super cute :) good luck with finals!!
