Happy December, friends! Today I am joining Anne In Residence to share a few things currently going on in my life. What holiday things are you up to? Join us and share, it would be great!
Currently: December 2018
Gifting everyone — but so far it is happening only in my mind, haha. I actually haven’t even started buying Christmas presents yet. And now I am realizing that I should start buying present soon. However, I have been thinking about what to get for everyone for quite some while. So at least I have ideas!
Baking up an orange garland soon. I have seen these DIY dried orange holiday garlands on Instagram and I really want to try them myself. Seems simple but beautiful enough! Also I hear they smell wonderful, so that is an added bonus. I will also be baking gingerbread cookies and actually try decorating them this year.
Singing Christmas carols, especially at church. I love the Advent season at church as we include carols in our worship. I love carols because they always have such a beautiful message in them. So including a few carols in the worship seems just wonderful.
Mailing Christmas cards hopefully early enough this year. I am planning to write them tomorrow, actually, as December 6th is the Independence Day here in Finland. So I have the day off and therefore it seems the perfect time to write some Christmas cards.
Decorating for Christmas slowly, bit by bit. To be honest, I don’t own too many Christmas decorations yet. I am a minimalist at heart, so I always consider carefully what kind of decorations I want. White and all the greenery seems to be my favorites always, though. This year, I am hoping to find some more decorations because now I honestly own like 5 Christmas decorations! So yes, there is still space for more.
