Christmas time is here!

We purchased, put up, and decorated our first-ever Christmas tree after I got off work today. Isn't it festive?!? It makes me smile inside and out.
I can hardly believe I'm a employed and married college graduate preparing for Christmas in our first house. Much has changed in the last year! There's so much to be thankful for.
Speaking of thankfulness, we hosted Thanksgiving for both sides of our family last week.17 people ate around one long table that pretty much consumed our whole living and dining room. The table looked pretty good too, if I do say so myself. However, in my hurried hostess state I didn't snap any photos. Shame! All I can say is that I even spray painted mini pumpkins gold and tied a strip of paper with each person's name around the stems as place cards. Next time I do it I'll be sure to snap some photos to show you. Until then, you can just ask my family about how fabulous and fun the day was.
