Christmas in our Historic Home

December 12, 2016

We will be spending Christmas back on the east coast this year, but I couldn't resist decorating our historic home in Kansas for Christmas anyway.  Our 11 months in Kansas will be up in June, and I know I'll likely never live in something quite so historic and charming ever again, so I had to go all out with garland, Christmas trees and holiday decor.  I'm sure I'll have lots of pine and cedar needles to clean up when I get home after New Years, but it's totally worth it.  It truly is the most wonderful time of the year, isn't it?
