If I were to give anyone advice on creating a cozy, relaxing corner at home, I think my number one suggestion would be to put up
twinkly lights somewhere and leave them up all year long.
I mean- not that anyone is actually asking me for advice... but you know.
These are not Christmas lights folks, these are lights to be put up and left up until they burn out.
All the way out.
I always have lights up on my fireplace mantle, I'm sure we have been through at least four sets
since we have lived in this house.
I always have a string of lights up in my tiny little office and I always couple of strands in the backyard hanging across the fence, too.
I think I need some hanging in my bedroom and in Charlotte's bedroom, too but I just haven't gotten around to it just yet.
The twinkly lights give off the perfect amount of light during the day and night.
When I am sitting in the living room at night after the kids go to bed, watching tv or reading in peace and quiet... just perfect.
So calm and relaxing and happy.
Sometimes it really is the simplest of things that bring us the tiniest bit of happiness and I'll take that.
So tonight I will be sitting here in my living room with my twinkly lights, watching Elf-- and I'm sure it won't be the last time I
will see this before Christmas, either.
We love Elf.
I just realized that this time next week, Christmas will be over. Over. Wow.
I'm trying hard to enjoy this last week, it sure has flown by!
Have a great weekend, everyone.
