Putting up Christmas decorations all through the house makes it feel so warm and cozy and holiday-ish. But here's a little secret, I love taking it all down. I am such a nut for things being clean, crisp, precise, that when its time to remove it all, I heave a sigh of relief.
And last night, we took down the very last of it. Even though I was horribly tired, at 11 pm I was vacuuming up all the "needles" (we have a fake tree) and dusting the shelves, putting things back the way they should be.
So when I woke up this morning and came down stairs I was so happy to see our house back. Normalcy has returned to our casa!!
