Happy December Everyone!

I don’t know about all of you but I am not usually done decorating until December 24th. There is something about crafting around the holiday season that makes my holiday spirit soar. I like to go slow and do it when I want to. But the bummer with this is that I take everything down December 26th, because I am so excited to say goodbye to pine needles, and feel ready to have my space back. Which leaves me with 1 and 1/2 days to enjoy the magic. When I was invited by Katie of Mountain Modern Life to partake in this magical series “Christmas in the Camper” I was completely honored. Have you seen their blog? They are the real.deal. Intimidated and euphoric I waited a bit to commit (waited ’til the last day to sign up (Sorry, Katie)). 🙈But wow, I am so happy to be a part of this series. It forced me to get my shit together wayyyy earlier than normal and now I am sitting here at midnight the night before my post will be going live first thing in the morning. Procrastination, but still way ahead of normal. Seeing it as a win.
It is so fun to see how everyone decorates their homes on wheels. We are all unique in our tastes, and it shows in the best way possible. Also, a cool little note, we have only met one of the couples featured in this series in person (shout out to Kerm & T-nasty)! It is amazing how the internet brings people together. Do you want to see the rest of the posts? Check at the bottom of this blog post for a link that shows you all the adorable camper decorations that are live so far and as the week progresses more will be popping up in there! There are 15 of us total! WOO¡
A couple notes about our holiday decor this year. If you know our home you know we basically have a rainbow color scheme. Last year I just stuck with white Christmas decor, and called it a day (to see last years Christmas Decor click here). This year I decided to embrace the rainbow and it actually made decorating much easier for me. I am all about tiny little hints of Christmas, that you have to look for to find. Almost a little scavenger hunt. But also travel, budget, and storage friendly. Like I said earlier, I really like to craft around the holiday season, so I make my decorations every year. Every Christmas is a blank canvas.
Now for some logistics.
