I kicked up my heels & decked the halls a bit early this year.  The Home Depot invited me to participate in their glorious Holiday Style Challenge & I was beyond thrilled for the chance to get creative & festive!  Today I'm sharing the details over on the Home Depot Apron Blog.

Back in October, as we were setting up the amazing tree they sent us (amongst other cool holiday items), the weather outside was in the 70s.  I'm sure some neighbors did double takes as they walked past our atrium window where we placed the tree (or am I the only one who peers into people's windows).  I wouldn't have noticed as I was in my element.....nestled in sparkly ornaments & the lemony-minty scent of evergreens......wading thru glitter & empty boxes wrapped as gifts.  
Quinn was confused.  Was Santa coming for Halloween?!  As she was helping (or not helping) me hang ornaments, I was awed to see that she was getting caught up in the magic of it all.  Even if it wasn't quite the real thing yet.  That holiday spirit.....it's exhilarating.
It was such a fun, inspiring, exciting experience.  I still can't believe I had the honor of being a part of it.  Thanks a million to The Home Depot for having me!  Many thanks to you for taking the time to check it out (I'm in great company; the other bloggers participating are incredible)!

Hot cocoas all around :-)
