Hello everyone, how is your week going? Things here have been ticking along nicely. On Monday we picked out our tree, and while Travis was busy trimming the branches from the bottom, I got started on the other decor for the house. One of the things I was most excited to tackle was our mantel. I haven’t had a mantel to decorate before, so this is something new for me. The fireplace is in our family room, which is open to our eating area and kitchen. We decided to put the tree in the living room, though I thought it would look great by the fireplace, the living room offered a little more space. Now that rooms have a bit of Christmas in them, I’m loving the decision we came too. There is a balance of Christmas in the house. Love it all!!!
