The Holiday Season

For me, the Holidays started November 1st, but for most people, the Christmas season doesn't start until after Thanksgiving but for me Thanksgiving is just a part of the Christmas season. I am loving being back here with the clean air smell {even Austin comments on it} the crisp air, some sun some rain & I am loving the time change! Last night I helped my mom put the 'Christmas Village' up and plan to continue the decorating until Thanksgiving when it ALL goes up! Since we were in Denver the last 2 years I haven't been able to pick out a tree in quite a while but this year it's one of the things I am most looking forward to! Walking into Starbucks {as I already mentioned} always smells, and looks like the holidays this time of year and even downtown Kirkland was putting up their real garlands-they smell like Christmas and make me so happy! It has been a weird adjustment moving back though trying to juggle a baby, friends and family {and for 4 weeks, a job} I think things are finally starting to feel normal again & are only going to get better, it's my favorite time of year & I have SO MUCH to be thankful for!

It's my favorite time of the year too Ash! We always shared that (and so much more) in common! Any place you decorate, whether it's your house or your mom's will look incredible!
