The holiday season always sneaks up on me. Even though I’ve been busily buying Christmas presents since Thanksgiving, I haven’t been quite in the spirit to start decorating my house (I still have pumpkins on the front porch!). I mean, how is it December already?
It was 60 degrees out yesterday (and today), so I did put up decorations and lights on the outside of our house, because I knew I’d never get a better time. But figuring out numbers and lengths of extension cords doesn’t exactly get you in the Christmas spirit.
Then last night, we ventured to downtown Chicago with friends (since it was so warm) and really kicked off our holiday season. :)
We stopped first at Daley Plaza for Christkindlmarket.
I was in love with these colorful lighted stars. I know we’ve all seen them before, but how pretty do they glow? What if these were your only holiday decorations? Gorgeous.
Then we headed over to Michigan Avenue to see the trees and eat a delicious late dinner.
It’s all enough to get anyone excited for the holidays, right?
I feel like I’m ready to start my decorating! I’ve been pinning a lot of ideas, so I think it’s time to actually bring of them to fruition.
Where are you with your holiday decorating? Have you started? Are you done? Can you believe it’s December??
