a christmas mantle

Where has November gone? Where did my maternity leave go is a better question. I want it back. My return to work has been a doozy and it’s all I can do not to sit in tears at my desk missing my babies. I’ve brought Copeland with me the last couple mornings, which has helped both my and Dave’s transitions back to these current roles. Neeson’s loving the one-on-one time with daddy, too, so it’s a win all around!

We decorated the mantle and got the tree up and that’s about the extent of the Christmas decorating we’ll do. It was important to us to keep it simple and I’m really happy with how it has all turned out! Fresh garland from the tree farm was a special treat this year – it smells SO GOOD and let’s be honest, looks 127654582347654 times better than the fake stuff.

I’ll be sharing a full Christmas house tour soon. How much do you want to bet that there will be something different about the mantle in those photos? I can never stop moving things around. It drives poor Dave crazy. Ha!
