I hope you all are having a great start to your week!  We have family coming in town in a few days and it really makes the fact that Christmas is in 9 days feel even more real!!

I really enjoyed being part of the 12 Days of Christmas Tour of Homes this year hosted by Jenny from Evolution of Style.

So lets begin at this beautiful door!  I love everything about it–the aqua blue color, the boxwood wreath, the gold ‘C’, and the classic white and black striped bow!
