The Holiday Spirit

Have you ever had one of those years where Christmas just seems to sneak up on you because you have so much going on that you forget to take the time to stop and enjoy it? Well, it seems this holiday is turning into that for me!

 I'm going to make every effort to enjoy all the things I love about this time of year, from decorating to music  &  baking to an excuse to breaking out the tartan and sequins. These images all get me perfectly in the holiday spirit and I think they will for you too.

I also love Caitlin's post on six ways to get into the holiday spirit!

What do you do to get in the Christmas spirit?

I love this holiday inspiration. I haven't had time to get into the holiday spirit either.

The music always helps! luckily, the other people in my office are totally into having a Christmas playlist constantly flowing through our unit!

I've barely had time to celebrate this year yet but my little 5 foot tree is up and I've been blasting the Christmas music! Now I just have to start baking!

LOVING all of these images! I need some extra spirit myself, and these are perfect. I especially love the "chestnuts" sign over the mantel. Am I crazy for wanting to buy it even though I don't even HAVE a mantel? LOL
