No, we aren’t adding a baby to the family (yet), but we did hang stringed lights in our living room. Needless to say, I am obsessed. It creates some much needed light (we have no overhead light in our living room and have been getting by with lamps) and a lovely atmosphere (a la backyard dinner party). We joked that it classes the place up, but it really does feel that way. We have been holding onto these lights for a few years (originally intended to hang them in our backyard back in Texas), and after having the idea to do this for months, we finally did it on New Year’s Eve.
On another note, I’m always sad to put the Christmas decorations away, but boy does it feel good to have a less cluttered space to ring in the new year.
