When do you take down your Christmas Decorations? Do you wait until the new year or do you do it right after Christmas? I usually like to ring in the new year with my decorations still up. Still feels like a holiday this way:) Then within the next few days, after January 1st, I start slowly taking them down. Most of the time, the first weekend after NYE is when they ALL fianlly come down. Needless to say, they are still up as of right now because today was a busy day of getting everything back in order for Adelore Creations (my subscription box business). We have boxes going out in the next week and a half and there is a lot of work to be done for that still. Taking down the Christmas decorations is such a sad task. The house feels so much more empty afterwards! At least for me that's how it is. I know for some people, they cannot wait 'till the decorations come down! I must admit that I do love a more clutter free space after everyhting has been put up. Even though the Christmas Cheer goes away, put up neatly for the next time it gets to come out and bring more joy. I know, I am a Christmas fanatic to say the least. So tell me, are you someone who puts away their decorations as soon as Christmas is over or do you wait a little longer, longing for the Christmas past?
We made it to the New Year! It’s a fresh new beginning… then why does it feel exactly the same? If you didn’t have any party plans last night then you probably spent it in your home doing normal things, as I did. I had the TV on, watched a couple of shows, had a couple of drinks with my boyfriend and made some food. Then in the middle of Wednesday, episode 3, the clocked turned to midnight and the New Year was upon us. We paused the show, wished each other a happy new year, watched some fireworks that were being launched outside our home and then went back to watching the show! It felt exactly the same but at the same time it felt like a reset button was pressed. Today I woke up to new hope and looking forward to the future. Since New Year’s Day is a Sunday, I didn’t do much of anything. Had my regular coffee, breakfast and then had to pick up some medicine from the pharmacy for my boyfriends mom. Then we dropped her off back home to rest and we did a little shopping of our own
