It's the most wonderful time of the year, is it not?
Me? I've got Christmas joy on steroids.
I didn't expect the excitement of home ownership after all those years of uncertainty, self-doubt, and frustration, to leave me so quickly. I'm guessing the excitement never really left, but was quickly replaced when summer started and I found myself over committed and overwhelmed.
Thankfully, and as is typical in life, things settle down. As school started, I committed to slowing down and setting priorities for myself and for our family, allowing me the peace and calmness that I was lacking and making the way for this beautiful new season in my life. And in this new season, I've discovered that I LOVE making this home our own. It brings me great JOY!
And after six months of indecision and with Christmas here for inspiration, this is my new mantra:
"To me, style is about years of collecting, figuring out what you like, and weaving it all together. The important thing is owning your look and not minding what others think. It can be tricky to find style confidence, but once you find it, you're free."

So what do I really like?
Keeping it simple.
How about you?
