SO LONG, 2016!

another year has come and gone and what a year it has been! i am welcoming the new year with open arms and an open mind. 

happy new year to all of you! and thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along. 


when we first moved into this home, we were so excited about it's potential. we are still renting and didn't want to throw too much money into a home that truly isn't ours but a fresh coat of white paint true transformed this little cottage. for months we talked about decorating for the holidays. it's our favorite time of year and filled with so many traditions. we couldn't wait to put up our tree, hang stockings on our (first!!!) mantle, and do so much more. here's a few photos from the last week. we've been adding more greenery and lights by the day! happy holidays, friends!
