HOLIDAY HOME DECOR:
I was so inspired by the lovely Zoe, from Zoe With Love, during our holiday collaboration post, that I needed to try out some of her adorably festive decor. I added only a few small touches to our bedroom, but they made the whole room feel cozy and warm during the holiday. And these flannel sheets are so warm.

- a set of flannel sheets,
- a throw blanket,
- a throw pillow, and
- a miniature boxwood wreath)
When my sister and I still lived in the house we grew up in, we bought ourselves a pair of festive pajamas each year for Christmas. In true sisterly fashion, we usually got the same pair in different colors. Of course, to be extra cheesy, we wore these pajama sets to decorate the tree and, of course, open gifts on Christmas morning.
Even though we don’t share a bedroom anymore, and even though Christmas mornings are a lot different now than they used to be, I still like the tradition of wearing festive pajamas for the holiday. My husband laughs at (and only sometimes takes part) in my enthusiasm for Christmas. I’m big on creating and upholding traditions, even small ones like this.
The world is so full of violence and anger. To me, these little traditions are small steps in bringing people together, starting with your own family.
What traditions do you guys share over the holidays? I’d love to hear any or all of them!
