Christmas In July: Home Decor Ideas

Ever since I was a little kid, I have absolutely loved decorating the inside and outside of my homes. When we were little, my sister and I would help my mom decorate the inside, and as I got older, I liked to take over my dad’s job of putting up the lights outside.

There’s something magical about decorating – and something super unmagical about putting the decor away! HAHA! Putting the decor away was definitely a task for my mom! She is a master packer – like literally! Everything that ever got put into our attic was packed so well it could have been put on an airplane, freight train, cargo ship and even a donkey and would not have broken. She’s legit.

I look forward to decorating my home every year, usually around the Dog Days of Summer when it’s hot and you’d appreciate a break in the heat!
