Our Christmas Home Tour: Part One

How is Christmas less than 2 weeks away? Seriously, time just zips by at lightening speed. I wish it would slow down so we could really savor this season. I just love it all–baking, family traditions, and celebrating the birth of our Savior–it’s definitely my favorite time of year.

I’m so excited to share with you my very first Christmas home tour (and the first Christmas in our new home!) Today I’m featuring our living room, breakfast nook, and kitchen.

Enjoy!

I wanted our mantel to be super simple this year. I just love old spindles and the touches of burlap. And this vintage book page banner is probably my favorite thing ever. Ok, maybe not ever, but pretty darn close.

Here’s the hallway leading into our living room. This is actually the bottom of an old screen door. I needed the top half for a project in my dining room (sharing that soon!) so we had to cut the bottom of the door off. Of course I wasn’t going to throw it away, so this is where it ended up. And you know I had to spruce it up with a little fresh garland!

This is my favorite room in our home. It’s just so cozy and I love the way it feels all dressed up for Christmas.

  • Sometimes I wonder what my kids will think when they look back on these little squares I share here everyday. I hope to make them proud in every thing I do, but most of all I hope they see how deeply I love them. I woke up this morning feeling desperate for time to slow down so I can soak in this season with them. These are truly the best days. And even on the hard days & the days I feel like I can’t do it all, I love this life & I’m so grateful to God for every minute of it. 💛🙏
  • Slowing down this morning to cuddle on the couch with my baby, drink a second cup of coffee & take in this cozy view. It was a long week over here & this moment is much needed 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Happy weekend everyone!! #grateful

  • Happy Friday!! 🙋‍♀️ I’m talking about one of my favorite things on the blog today: SKINCARE!! You guys, for the first time ever this week I got on stories with NO makeup. Not one drop of foundation or concealer on my face & no filter. I know that may not sound like a big deal to some of you, but as someone who’s seriously struggled with skin issues throughout her entire life, it’s a HUGE step for me. I’ve always felt SO self-conscious of my skin & it’s been a struggle since I was in high school. But my skin has improved so much & I owe that to @tula. I’ve been religiously using their products for close to two years now & I’ve seen major improvements through that time. 🙏🙏 I shared all about their holiday gift kits on the blog today, so hop over there if you want to check it out. They’re offering some amazing kits, so now is a great time to stock up on your favorites & of course they make great gifts too. AND the kind folks at @tula gave me a new coupon code for you guys—you can use SARAHJOY for 20% off your order 🎉🎉 #partner #tula
  • My favorite time of day— when the sun goes down & everything starts to glow. That’s when it really feels like Christmas is coming. There’s just something magical about those twinkling lights! ✨✨
