Packing Away Christmas

Every year as I pack away Christmas decorations, I feel a sense of nostalgia for the past year and anticipation of the next. As I re-decorate my house for the new year, sometimes things go back just like they were before Christmas, but often I want a fresh look throughout my home.

Today’s post is a look at a few vignettes created with both the future and the past in mind. I did this in order to remind me throughout 2015 of what is important.
