Christmas Bling

Pinned Image

Mmm there is just something about this time of year. Now that Thanksgiving is over and we are coming upon December, it is lovely to think of Christmas being ever so close.
As I sit by a cozy fire with a cup of hot chocolate in hand, Michael Buble singing a "White Christmas".
Ahhh it's here.
We may not have the ideal life (at Christmas or any time of the year) that we dream of. I don't have the amazing and handsome husband, 2.5 kids and house with a white picket fence. You may not have the perfect job, the family life, an ideal apartment, or the funds to buy the gifts and decoration you would love to purchase. I am reminding myself every day this season, to embrace with a full and open heart, what IS in front of me. And looking for ways to give to others, to make someone else's day brighter, and to take what I have and bless someone else.

"...Jesus Himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than receive.'"
-Acts 20:35

Once again, I believe the little things can make all the difference.

With that said, Christmas gives us girls an excuse to decorate with a little more glitter than we usually would, make a homemade wreath, bake some yummy sugar cookies, and write some Christmas cards to those we cherish. Just want to share some of my latest Christmas inspirations:
