Can actually believe that I had to run to the store 3 times to get new lights because they failed once I had them up on the tree? What is it with me and Christmas lights?
Every year I move the desk next to the sofa instead of my white side table. The side table has a new home for December in our bedroom.
I wish I could take better pictures in the evening. I love the glow of all the lights. It just looks so much better than during the day.
I added a small christmas tree to the corner of the dining room, which you can see on the first picture of this post. And I added the silver Christmas balls to the window that you can see below. I forgot to take more photos.
I wish you all a beautiful first advent this weekend. Growing up it was always a big deal for me in Germany. Doesn’t seem to be in the U.S. but my parents always had a wreath with 4 candles on the coffee table. The first Sunday of December we’d light the first candle, the second Sunday the next, the third the next and the fourth was lit on Christmas. Which for me has always been the 24th not the 25th. In Europe it’s always been about celebrating baby Jesus’ birthday not about Santa Claus, but that is changing now too. I try to combine the two for our children, but I’ll tell you about it next time.
