the crazy busy Christmas season…

I love Christmas – definitely my favorite time of year – but it can get sooo crazy with all the Christmas concert rehearsals, caroling, cookie exchanges, corporate parties, etc.

I’m writing this on Sunday since I’m not home any other night this week! I have 2 concert rehearsals, 3 performances of the concert, and we’re going to see the NY Philharmonic perform Handel’s Messiah (super excited about that one!!).

Well, I don’t have quite enough Christmas lights put up around my house, but I thought I’d share a sneak peak of my decorations, the projects in-progress, and just some photos of life lately 🙂

I’m planning to share more holiday pics of our home next week.
