I like to decorate.
It makes me happy.
And Fall + Christmas
Hands down my favorite part of the year.
When I was in college (a long time ago)
I loved to decorate. But we didn’t have camera phones so I didn’t have a way to keep track of everything.
I only changed up my decor during the Christmas season.
Then I met Heather.
Her cute apartment was decorated for Fall and Halloween.
I literally asked if people decorated for “that” season. She laughed and said yes.
Bam! My 2nd favorite time of the year.
But here is the thing. When you’re newly married. Only 22. In college. You don’t have money. (Most don’t anyway). I think at first I started secretly buying things. Little things. $1-$5 items. I limited myself to around $50 a year. Same with Christmas.
Here I am 13 years later with a great collection. I still buy some things new each year. But I really try to repurpose items as much as possible.
My point is. It doesn’t take much to start. And to make the area your own. And when you do that it really makes you smile.
On to the pics!!!
(Front porch pics coming soon. It was decorated. Then hurricanes happened. And mums died so….)
