Last weekend I started on some heavy duty Christmas shopping. I didn’t buy a single gift for other people. Oh stop it, it’s not what you think! My mom and I picked up several different things to decorate my new home for the Holidays. It was very exciting (to say the least)! We now have a tree, lights, several ornaments, garlands and even a wreath in my living room… all in bags or boxes. I’m off to Whitehorse (that’s right… the one in the Yukon) to visit a dear friend. I’m lucky to be her Maid of Honour for her upcoming wedding in February – SUPER exciting! Anyway, what I’m saying here is all that stuff from last weekend will continue to sit here until I get back on Monday – then Alex and I can get started on the decorating (eeeee! Yep, I let out a little squeal just thinking about it!!).
I couldn’t help but leave one little tiny touch of Holiday Cheer as I’m off to the true Great White North…
Plus, I just happened to have one last little plant that didn’t fit in either terrarium #1 or #2, and it needed a little home. Isn’t this mug just delightful? I’m not sure I’ll be able to get rid of it once Christmas has passed. Is that nuts? I just figure you can always use the reminder that celebrating Christmas is a joyful time, and that I always have reason to be joyful for the day that little baby came into the world to redeem us.
Here is where the mug of joy sits, as I stare at it now.
Here’s where I link up.
