Can they be lovely? Of course.
Can they be elaborate? Can they be simple? Definitely, whatever your taste.

The snowman on our steps was my grandmother’s. We were close and she died almost 10 years ago from pancreatic cancer. We once tried to count all the snowmen in her home and became tired before we passed 50. Christmas was a joyous season for her, and I love that I have a few of her favorite things to decorate our home with.
Prints and scripts that prompt our hearts to worship and admire God. (And drawings from good friends’ kids. The best.)
