There is no place that I’d rather be than home for the holidays. Every year my parents have tried to get us to go forgo the normal Christmas traditions and take a family vacation instead and every year my sisters and I say no. To me there is just something special about being home for the holidays.
Growing up my family always decorated the Christmas tree the Sunday after Thanksgiving. That tradition still holds true but this year it was just me, mom and dad since both sisters moved to Chicago and Austin. It definitely was a little sad putting up all of the decorations without them!
My favorite part about putting up the Christmas decorations each year is that we all would put on our Christmas pajamas, blare Christmas music and stop for hot chocolate breaks. It’s a tradition that I will no doubt hopefully one day share with my own little family.
A lot of my mom’s home decor is older or from Homegoods so it is not linkable but I was able to link some stuff for you guys and also went ahead and linked items that I put on my wish list for my own home next year! if you need a little more inspiration I shared a holiday decor gift guide here and whole round up of decor items here.
