Minimalist Christmas Decorations By Chance
I do love a full on decorated Christmas house. I have bins upon bins of decorations accumulated through the years. I have an entire village of lighted houses, complete with coffee house and ice skating rink. This year however, due to schedules, another unfortunate flare up of RA, and quite frankly laziness, we have barely managed the tree up with lights, a wreath on the door, and a string of lights on the porch. I'll drag out a box of ornaments for the kids to put on Sunday when DS is home, and once a few gifts are wrapped, it will be lovely. I should be disappointed, but I actually am kind of liking the simplicity of it all. It is quiet, dark, and relaxing this morning, just me, and the soft lights from the tree (and computer) cup of tea in hand. I've had my last two Christmas' invaded by health issues. This year, despite the flareup, I'm really quite well and have been able to enjoy outings and gatherings. Perhaps my body and mind are working together to tell me to just relax this year, and enjoy the simple lovelies of the season.
