First off, have you checked out all of the link-ups for Taking Stock of 2012?! Go do it! Its so neat to read how God has moved in different people's lives over the last year.
I realize that its not Christmas anymore, but I never got around to posting pictures of our house this year. Bear with me, because this post is more for me to have just to look back on years down the road...just like I forgot to do last year and remembered to do the year before.
So, for good measure...here's a peek back at last year:
And a few from this year...
I still love this wreath from last year too much to justify making another.
For the record, I love my kitchen. Its big and roomy with tons of counter and storage space and an adorable bay window. But I do hate the builder grade honey oak cabinets and outdated electric stove/hood. I have dreams of painting the cabinets and putting in a gas stove with mounted microwave. A girl can dream, right?
Can you spot my favorite Christmas present of the year?!?! Swoon.
You may be thinking, "man...you have a lot of nutcrackers."
Guys, that's only nine of my 50. I scaled back this year. Big time.
My favorite shots of three this year were taken on instragram in the mornings while I sat on the couch doing my advent study.
