Oh Hey December



 It has been a while since I have written a blog post. The past couple months have been a complete blur and really the past year seems to have escaped my mind. Life, as for many, has been hectic and frustrating. I am so looking forward to a day at home for Christmas. 

I am hopeful the last few weeks of this year can be simple but joyful and that I can focus on what really matters. Life is not going to magically become perfect come 2021 but it still encouraging to be starting a new year.  

I have been doing a study on Ecclesiastes with my church group and my goodness it has really helped! I feel completely scattered every week and then when I prepare for study and then dig deeper with my sisters in Christ I am reminded that God is in control. I encourage you to study Ecclesiastes!


With decorating for Christmas I decided to continue what I tried last year and decorate with citrus. It is an "old fashioned' type look and I love it! I dehydrate oranges, grapefruit, and lemons and then put them on the tree as ornaments! Also, a friend of mine shared this DIY Dried Orange Wreath video and I think I might need to give it a try. 

You can also make garlands and it is a bright happy look. I like the ornaments because the Christmas lights shine so pretty through them.

Rebecca St. James had new songs come out in July and I am the last to know. This one I have been listening to a lot.

Also this is a great version of Little Drummer Boy.

I hope you have a great holiday season.

Happy December and Merry Christmas!
