Like it or not, the holidays will be here before we know it! I definitely fall into the camp of Christmas fanatic, so I love being able to check items off of my list as early in the season as possible in order to fully enjoy the holidays. This includes shopping for gifts, prepping for Christmas parties, and holiday cards. There are many options nowadays for holiday party invitations and photo Christmas cards, but after creating this year’s card at Basic Invite, their system is hands-down my favorite.
While we were in our Brooklyn House for three Decembers total, we only decorated for Christmas once. Whomp, whomp. I love decorating for the holidays, but when you are in the midst of moving, it kind of falls down on the priority list. The one year we did get in the holiday spirit was the year we were on the neighborhood Historic House Tour which was a lot of work, but a lot of fun. To be honest, it was kind of awkward to have strangers pay to come into your home and judge it! Not sure we would do it again, but a cool experience nonetheless. :) Here are a few photos of our little cottage all decorated up!
