i doused our house in fresh white paint this weekend while matt was away for work.
i wanted to surprise him with much progress when he got home...then realized that painting old white walls white again isn't the most exciting makeover reveal.
so i decorated for christmas.
just a little here's and there's...enough to warm up the house and to soothe the christmas decorating itch i always get way too soon (i have very little self control when it comes to these things).
the silly part is that there is so much construction work yet to be done all around...missing floorboards, random holes and wires and dust...but i got to put out my little tulle christmas tree...and it all makes sense.
max made a sign to hang up welcoming matt home and set up the winter village on the bookshelf. i keep catching him curled up in the chair and walking his fingers past the houses...making up back stories for the deer. a new favorite christmas memory for me to store in my mind. and that is definitely what this move is all about.
all in all, not too shabby for a weekend's work.
and really the christmas bits distract from the massive holes in the ceiling and walls.
