I have been trying to fight it for a week or so now, that darned ol' Christmas bug. I broke down today and bought my first new Christmas decoration. It's a handpainted serving plate for the kitchen, and I have it displayed on the counter! I'll post a picture later. Now all I can think about it Christmas decorations!! I plan on deep cleaning the apartment top to bottom, then getting everything put up. I have NEVER decorated for Christmas this early! I always wait until after Thanksgiving. Oh well, it's fun! And Christmas decor is so cozy and really makes your house feel like a home. I'm excited to enjoy the holiday season for a little longer this year.
