We are away from home and family this holiday season. It’s always hard for me this time of year – I know exactly what I am missing. Somehow the weather just doesn’t feel like Christmas, growing up in Colorado I need at least a little snow to feel like I’m ready for Christmas and New Years. As far as I know, Brazil doesn’t get snow, even during the ‘winter’.
To make the house feel a little more festive and to help break out of my little funk I’ve done some decorating. On Saturday my husband helped me make some paper stars from old wrapping paper and hang them from our absolutely horrific light fixture.
We also hung up some of our old Christmas cards. I punch some holes in the top corners and then string them up around the house. Most of the pictures have lovely winter scenes and snowy mountains.
