So far, December in the Midwest this year has been rather interesting. We’re experiencing extremely warm temperatures for this time of year, and lots of sunshine. It’s made it a little too easy to forget that the holidays are just a couple of weeks away!
I’ve been scribbling down lists like crazy – who I’m buying for, what I’m getting for them, recipe ideas, around-the-house to-do’s… yikes! The last thing on my mind lately has been my wishlist. Honestly, all I want this season is some time to relax, nap, eat good food, and spend as many uninterrupted hours as possible catching up with my loved ones. But my friends and family certainly aren’t letting me get away without giving them gift ideas that easy!
This month, I’m going crazy over home decor because we are getting SO close to owning our house… like, we can TASTE it close. And that means finally nailing down a vision and shopping for every single inch of our space… right?! I want to incorporate lots of plants (9) and pops of color (10 and 13) against the basic (black, white, and gray) color palette of the majority of our walls and furniture (8.) I’m also thinking lots of white, copper, and wood accessories (12) in the kitchen!
I also can’t wait to get some lounging time in around the holidays. I’ve been spending any free, calm moment I have coloring (2) and reading (7) lately. I’ll certainly be doing plenty of that while dressed down (1) and cuddled up (10) and maybe even by candlelight (4!)
If I must go out once the cold winter finally arrives, I think it would be much more managable with cute accessories (5 and 6) and plenty of lip balm (3.)
What’s on your holiday wishlist this year?
