How Early is Too Early??

Because I may or may not have taken this picture last night...in my living room...

Ready or not, Santa's on his way! Bells are ringing, Josh Groban is singing and Starbucks has red cups. So buckle your sleigh bells and get ready for a Christmas Story marathon!

I've been fighting it a bit because we're having GORGEOUS 75 degree days here in Austin. I'm not wishing away this beautiful fall but there is something about the first burn of my Balsam & Cedar candles and plugging in my decorated Christmas tree that sets my heart a flutter. Don't think we didn't crank up our AC so we could drink our hot chocolate the night the tree went up. Dave said, "Well, it looks great! But I think you've set an all-new record." He's right, but with the schedule I've been keeping I had to do it when I could do it or it wouldn't get done! So there you go!

I hope are all gearing up for a wonderful holiday season full of Thanksgiving blessings and Christmas fun!

That Christmas card tree is SUCH a fabulous idea! If you bought it, we need details. If you made it, hope you're planning to share a little crafty lesson in a future blog post? :)
