welcome santa. & all your cheer.

the holiday season is without a doubt upon us.

we are after all, three days into the month of december.

there’s nothing like twinkly lights + an overdose of red & green to get you in the spirit.

[J]’s mom is a christmas decorating master. & his dad is a pro at exterior illumination.

let me give you a small glimpse of the beauty around here ..

I hope this filled you with holiday cheer. on this fine monday.

we’re working for the weekend holiday, now!!


[J] & I had our first “us” christmas last year, in new york. making this is our second christmas living together. traditions are important to me. so I’m brainstorming! [if you have any ideas, let me have ’em!]

happy monday!
