It is just me and the little guy for a little while because Clay is TDY to a stateside desert. While frequent TDY’s were the name of the game during our time in Oklahoma, we’ve been spoiled since arriving in the Washington DC area. No matter how frequent Clay is gone, the first day or two are always an adjustment while I channel my solo-parent mojo. But enough about that – let’s talk Christmas. Specifically, decorations.
In my opinion, compared to the gorgeous pictures I see on Facebook, our decorations fall on the side of underwhelming. Because we have always traveled for Christmas in the past, I’ve never gone all out for the holiday. And let’s face it – storing bins upon bins of decorations during the off-season isn’t my idea of a good time. Combine that with our frequent moves and you have a recipe for minimal Christmas decorations.
But I admit that we could use a little more yuletide jazz around these parts. I wandered around Home Goods yesterday morning and saw some beautiful items. Unfortunately, I didn’t see any prices that called my name. So I think I am going to have to hit some after-Christmas sales to pick up more decorations for next year.
Are there any other minimalists out there when it comes to holiday decorating? Or are you a balls to the wall Christmas decorator? If so, I bow to your commitment. I am not worthy, I am not worthy.
