So, tell me, when will you put up your tree?
{if it's not already up}
We will buy ours day after Thanksgiving!!!



  1. christmas wish by amy grant?? i think i must be in heaven!

    i'll put up my tree around thanksgiving. horror of horrors… it's fake. and "fluffing" it is my least favorite job. seriously awful. i pay my daughter to fluff it. not lying. i hate it that much. it's worth $40 bucks.

    unfortunately, she's coming home the week BEFORE thanksgiving. what's a mom to do?? i don't think i can get my act together that fast.

    but thanks for the christmas eye candy. i'm ready. i'm sooooo ready. 25 days of ELF… here i come!!

  2. OMGosh, that bathroom with the fireplace and Christmas tree: SO LOVE!!!!! We try to put ours up the weekend after Thanksgiving as we are still visiting family the actual day after...it tends to vary, but always as soon after Thanksgiving as possible!!!!!!

  3. At my house in the city the tree would go up the week-end of the Santa Claus parade. I loved the scent of pine the tree enveloped the house with. This year with renos still in progress at our country home I think it will be a small artificial tree (thankfully no assembly required)..

    Thank you for the beautifully photos ... I love Christmas!!

  4. @Purejoy, that is my absolute favorite....that's why it's #1!!

    @partialemptynester, I KNOW GIRL!! When I saw that picture that I thought, This is SO ME, if I had that bathroom, I'd so have that tree in there:)

    @HHL, you must get a Thymes Frasier Fir Candle....OMGosh...honey, I have mine burning now. I bought 2 a few weeks ago and they will probably be gone before Dec;)

  5. SOO excited for you about the concert!! And i just LOVE your Christmas pics. I, too, LOVE this season!!!

    And we drive out to a local tree farm every year and cut one down - it's an all day, fun-filled event! So we'll probably do it next weekend! :)

  6. I just love this time of the year, too. All the beautiful Christmas lights, festivities, music, etc. It really is the most wonderful time of the year.

    I noticed you mention the Thymes Fir Candle. I love it, too. My favorite, however, is Noel AND Christmas Sage BOTH by Votivo. Aaahmazing!

    Happy WW!

  7. Good evening from Tokyo!

    What absolutely breathtaking pictures...and can i tell you how envious I am of you? Aaron Neville!!!As a New Orleans girl born and raised that man and his family hold a special place in my heart. Enjoy them and the season ahead.

    My best to you this evening...
