Merry Christmas, my wonderful friends! How Blessed I feel to be able to share this very special moment with you today. This is my favorite time of the year; a time where I tend to feel extra emotional and extra busy, but soon I will be able to enjoy the real beauty of this season – after Christmas dinner is served and I just sit and see my family and we give thanks for this year.
Talking about blessings, I am so grateful for having Jessica Dolan of @2540loveandco on this “Beautiful Homes of Instagram”. Her home went under a complete renovation not too long ago and it’s looking more inspiring than ever.
Here, the homeowner talks more about her easy approach to Christmas decor: “This year, I kept my Christmas decor very minimal and simple. I opted for fresh winter greenery and wreaths and neutral ribbon. I let my kids decorate the tree all on their own. It was hard, but I didn’t even move anything around. 😬“
I hope you have a good time seeing this post and have a Blessed time with your loved ones during the Holidays! Thank you for being part of this community, my friends!

Home Renovation Insights: As soon you open the front door you have a great feel of what you will find in the rest of this beautifully renovated home.
