Christmas In Progress

 Hello Everyone, 

This holiday season will be different especially with it being the first holiday season without my mom. Christmas was one of her favorite holidays. As many of you know that my birthday is on Christmas Day. I've made a promise to myself that I won't get too depressed this holiday season, but I won't lie, it's hard. 

The day after Thanksgiving I made myself take out the Christmas Tree and decorations. It made me think of all the happy holiday memories I shared with my mom over the years. I owe it to her memory to continue Christmas Traditions. 



My tree has been the same theme for the past 3 years. Silver, Clear, and White. The lights reflecting off the clear ornaments looks so beautiful. 


I like to burn a candle(s) as I'm decorating. I usually burn Fresh Balsam, but this time I'm burning Vanilla Bean Noel, one of my favorite Christmas Candles.

I always love your white Christmas decor, Pilar. It's just so lovely. I was just telling someone the other day that it's nice to have a little white at Christmastime, especially when it snows. That's nice that you light a candle while you decorate. Your Christmas tree is so pretty, and I like those silver and white ornaments. I know this will be hard for you this year without your mom, but her traditions and love live on in you.

Happy December Pilar! I love that you're continuing to make Christmas memories and cherishing the Christmas memories you had with your mom. I know the holidays can be hard when grieving a loved one, but I know you mom is watching and smiling from Heaven on you!

Your decorations are so pretty! Merry Christmas!! I'm so sorry about your Mom and yes, the holidays can be so hard. I lost my Mom in 2008 and my Dad in 2011. I have been MIA for so long and missed so much. We've been so busy and I sort of gave up blogging for most of this year.
