I sort of feel like I experienced November and December all at once this weekend. I mean, wasn’t it just Halloween? I think many of us are feeling like the holiday season is approaching way too quickly, but I guess there’s not a whole lot we can do about it! For Rob and I, the holiday season gets really busy with traveling to see our families. We will be with Rob’s parents for Thanksgiving and next week is our marathon, so we decided to celebrate Thanksgiving with my parents this past weekend.
It was fun to celebrate, even if it was almost two weeks early! Thanksgiving dinner is one of my favorite meals ever, so why would I complain about getting to eat it more than once?
On Sunday we decided to decorate our apartment for Christmas. We have never decorated this early- usually we wait until December. But we won’t be around much between Thanksgiving and Christmas and we like to at least see our decorations for a little bit. We have a small, fake tree that we have used since we moved into our place 4 years ago. And over those 4 years, we have accumulated quite a bit of ornaments and decorations!
And of course, ended the weekend with a nice glass of wine.
Now that we have jumped into the holiday season, maybe things need to slow down for a bit. Ya know, so I can run my fall marathon and start Christmas shopping?
When do you start decorating for the holidays?
What is your favorite kind of meal?
