Want to know what made me super happy today? Well, okay lots of stuff did; like the husband taking the kids out to lunch and grocery shopping solo, me not getting stuck in the crawl space while pulling out Christmas stuff, and the dog not waking the toddler at naptime.

Want to know what else made me super happy today?! Christmas decoration shopping ALONE. It was glorious. There’s nothing that compares to walking into a store and being able to shop as long as you like while not worrying about anything fragile “accidentally” falling from the shelves.

I was in search of a few “grown up” decorations to help round out the family Christmas decor. I got distracted with adorable kitschy things, and I’m glad I did!!

Sitting here now, admiring my purchases, I’d say it was a great day!

Welcome back Christmas season, I’ve missed you.
