Honestly, this has been the oddest Christmas season for me. The time has slipped away so quickly regardless of not being caught up in the hustle of the season. I buy very few gifts and I focus mainly on time, traditions and togetherness during this season. I normally have the entire home decorated by December 1 and this year I managed to do what I wanted by December 15. In keeping with my traditional style, it’s simple, nature inspired and pretty plain. I find it cozy, warm and inviting without feeling cluttered and over done.
