Our Lives // Christmas Decorations 2014

Well hi there! Don't mind me. Just dropping off a few photos of our 2014 Christmas Decorations.

So, um… It's been 3 months since my last post. Whoops. It doesn't feel like its been that long. Honest. If you didn't notice, that's okay. Carry on. Nothing to look at.  Really. ;)

So lets talk Christmas decorations. I still love my neutrals. What began as burgundy & gold decorations in 2009 have completely transformed into creams, beiges, and a variety of metals-- I couldn't decide on just one metal. I'm an equal opportunity metal-lover. Not so much the music though. Unless in small flashback 80's doses.  It was a slow process, but the decorations all came together this year. I didn't craft a single thing this holiday season. Nope. Nothing. Hallelujah!

I meant to take photos and post this holiday stuff earlier in the month, but time just got away from me. Time is a slippery sucker.

I also meant to crank out posts in the months of October and November… I even started writing something down. Then I got distracted, lost interest and said… ah fahgettaboudit. End of story.

Where was I? Oh… I'd also like to promise that I will post more regularly in the new year, 2015 (!!!), but I don't like to make promises that I can't keep. I will try. How about that? Trying is good. Right?

So I leave you with a few more photos and a BIG Thank You for following along all these years. Six years of blogging in January! (Give or take a few months).  :)
