Virginia Season | Personal

This is Joel and I's first Christmas together here in Virginia. It's pretty cozy here in our new place, and to be honest, I'm really going to miss all the Christmas decor we've got up once the season is over! I just love Christmas. Everything about it, really. The lights, the colors, the sparkle, the excitement, the anticipation, the baking, and especially the Christmas secrets :) Joel and I put up our cute little tree a couple weeks ago, and I thought I'd share it with you all! Enjoy! and Happy Holidays!!

above :: I wish I could say this was my idea, but I saw an ornament arrangement like this in a house in Fredericksburg last Christmas season on the Candlelight Tour. The Candlelight Tour is an annual Christmas "to-do" here in Fredericksburg. The community has the opportunity to see the insides of old historical homes in the area that date back to the Civil War era. The homeowners graciously open their doors for the town to come see and hear stories about the home's origins.
