13 Amazingly Beautiful Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas

Christmas is just around the corner. Can you guys believe it? I found myself the other day at the store buying additional  ornaments for our Christmas tree.

Last year was sort of a rush thing for me since we had just moved in October  in brand new home and I was not quite decided whether I wanted to put in the work in shopping for a tree and ornaments. However, I ended up going for it and by the time I decided on it, most blush/rose gold ornaments were already gone. Our Christmas tree last year had our wedding colors: gold and blush but I added silver in place of the ivory that we had at our wedding.

This year, I made sure that I go to the store earlier than usual so I can pick some beautiful ornaments. After going to the store the first time and spent 2.5 hours looking for ornaments, I was undecided on what to get and how to put them together so I found myself looking for some Christmas Tree Decorating ideas.

31 Affordable Organizational Items To Keep Your Home Fully Organized Like a Pro

It’s been a few months since we’ve moved to our new home but…unpacking boxes, organizing the contents, and selecting and buying furniture can be a long process and can be very challenging as well.

Although we’ve  made a lot of progress, we still have a long way to go in organizing the little things here and there. Imagine combining two people’s stuff. My husband was in his old house for 18 years. He was single and lived by himself for such a long time so you can imagine that spring cleaning was probably never in his vocabulary. Bless his heart. We’ve already discarded and donated a lot but we still have a ton more to sort through. And being a blogger, I, too, have accumulated a bunch of stuff throughout the years. Although I make it a point to donate or give away yearly.

That being said, I found myself shopping for organizational products to keep our home organized and I’m sharing these items with you.

Caine’s House Tour: Before Photos

I’ve been meaning to do this for the longest time now but to be quite honest, I really didn’t take good photos of our house when we first moved in. However, while gathering some information about our property, I stumbled upon the Realtor.com listing with awesome photos. I got so excited that I grabbed them so I can share them with you!

We closed on our house October of last year (2017)  so it’s been about 10 months now since we’ve moved. Our house is pretty much furnished now with the exception of some empty walls and wall decors lying on the floor waiting for my husband to hang them.  Haha!

This is our first home together. My husband had his own house before we got married and I had mine. I moved to his house and we lived there for a few months until we sold it.
