Christmas Decorating Inspiration
Christmas is just 15 days away!
{which is so hard to believe!}
Houses are decorated, lights are up, and you can feel the Christmas 
happiness and spirit in the air.
It's hard not to be in a good mood during this time of year!
If you are looking for Christmas decorating inspiration 
take a peek at the 2014 Holiday House Walk.
30 beautiful homes all decorated with so many great ideas!
Here are just a few of my favorite images...

Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Our time was mostly spent trying to stay busy!
The anticipation and not knowing of when we are having this little guy is so hard.
I am a planner.
And to have something so huge and so life changing completely out of my control 
has been challenging to say the least.
I am really learning how to be patient and to trust that God's timing will be perfect...
because it always is.
I have this sign at the top of our stairs.
Isn't it beautiful?! 
My sister made it for me a couple years a go for Christmas and I just love it.
When we first moved in I searched and searched for the perfect place to hang it in our home
 and finally decided on this location.
Right at the top of the stairs.
And lately it has been the perfect reminder.
"Let all that you do be done in love."
As I go up and down the stairs and see that staring me in the face,
I have actually started to question how often I live that out.
And really how can I live that out better.
Taking the ordinary, day to day tasks and giving a purpose and meaning to them.
So during this advent season, I am challenging myself to do more "in love."
Not just the giving of christmas gifts or helping others out, but those day to day mundane tasks...that often get overlooked as purposeless. 
Have a great week!

The Waiting Game
happy December,
happy advent,
happy "it's officially christmas season!"
Where you are now officially allowed to blare christmas music without hiding it and add peppermint to  just about anything and everything. 
It is such a fun time of year.
We've entered the season of advent which brings so much anticipation.
The weeks leading up to the birth of Jesus 
The countdown begins and we wait.
It's an amazing time to reflect on the meaning of Christmas. 
This year is so different in that i've been anticipating this time of year for the past 9 months!
And it has felt like it has been so far off in the distance for so long. 
And here we are, entering December where this little wiggly baby could arrive any day.
So as the days draw nearer and the anticipation and excitement stronger
I want to enjoy this season for everything that it is right now-today.
Preparing for the birth of our baby boy and enjoying the time we have with just the two of us.
and preparing for Jesus' birthday-Christmas Day
