We have been in full-on Christmas mode this week, with lots of decorating and holiday fun to keep us busy. I've been trying to remember to post a few pics on Instagram as I go. I'd love it if you followed me there~ I'm dreamanddiffer. I will {hopefully} have full posts with more photos and details on all our Christmas decor coming up soon, but here's a little preview of what we've done so far.

The tree is up in all her glory. I love sitting in the living room with all the other lights off and enjoying the twinkle of Christmas lights.

Our kitchen mantel is a "joyful" reminder to have fun during this busy season. Careful around that fire, though. It gets hot!

And the kitchen shelf vignette is possibly my favorite ever. I am in love with this FREE chalkboard printable I found at Hoosier Homemade

I found this little love note on the kitchen counter the other night, waiting for Chris to find it in the morning. Totally melted this mama's heart! It's my favirt. ;)

My sister is coming to visit and we're going to see the Nutcracker and doing some Christmas shopping this weekend. I'm so excited! Do you have any fun plans?
