Christmas To-Do List

I thought I'd make a little Christmas to-do list to share with you all. Of course, all of the "to-do's" are fun and aren't meant to be stressful. It's intended to help us/you savour the season. Just giving a few ideas of fun things to do this time of year.

It doesn't mean everything will be done, but gives some ideas for when you want/need something to do. This year E is almost 2, so Christmas is sure to be a little more exciting for her this year (even though she doesn't fully understand what's going on). It's time to start thinking of a few little traditions we want to do with her each year! 

What are some of your family traditions & what would you add to the list? I love hearing traditions that families do this time of year!

Happy December!

Grapevine, Boxwood & Holly Berry Wreath

As much as I love fresh wreaths this time of year (they smell so good!), they aren't exactly ideal for apartment living. This year I thought I'd try making my own wreath that could last for the entire winter and not necessarily be just for the Christmas season & bonus, I could use it next year too. 

I'd like to invest in a nice boxwood wreath someday. They're so pretty and simple. Except I haven't been able to find one that I like. All the ones I've found around here look super fake & too plastic-y. I know, and remember, that Target has some nice ones (seriously, Target, why did you have to leave Canada? Yes, I'm still on that). Next time we head to the states to visit family I might just have to hunt one down. Anyways, enough of that & on to the DIY.

Christmas Inspiration

Stopping by to share a little bit of Christmas inspiration. I don't know about you, but I'm ready to get decorating! December is fast approaching and Christmas will be here before we know it! I think this weekend we are going to start making room for a tree :)

How cute is this? What a great way to display those Christmas cards!
