My favorite part about Christmas time is decorations, traditions, and holiday cheer. Call me old fashion, but holidays feel extra special when my family and friends partake in my annual traditions. Plus, new holiday prints are available in my Etsy Shop!
My family has several holiday traditions that we do not sway from each year. For instance, we eat at the same restaurant every Christmas Eve, then open presents with my Grandparent(s) and Uncle, then open gifts with my parents and brother on Christmas morning, then finally, enjoy brunch (with the same casserole every year).
Each year it seems like we pick up a new tradition. My best friend, Jenna, has come to my house on Christmas evening just in time for dessert for the past 5-6 years. Last year, we decorated a ginger bread house (as a joke), yet we had lots of laughs, so we are going to do it again this year!! It really is a simple tradition like this, that melts my heart during winter!!!
My mother has collected numerous Christmas decorations throughout the years. My favorite decorations are the ones that I remember her having when I was a child. Although I am now married, I live 1,000 miles away from home (South Florida), and I have not been home since last Christmas.. it is those decorations from my childhood that give me warm fuzzies and make it feel like I was home for last Christmas, just yesterday.
I plan on adding these Christmas-inspired prints to my holiday traditions! I am obsessed with Drafts & Crafts “milk and cookies for santa” print. It is going to be so fun when I have kids! I put it in a gold frame and plan on pulling it out each time December rolls around. I hope when Jason and I have children, they feel the same warm feelings when remembering all of our holiday decorations and family traditions.
Here are a few Christmas/Holiday/Winter inspired prints, as well as an FSU and UF print that are now available to purchase in my Etsy Shop:
