Holiday visitor

A friend is visiting this week from far far away, and in honor of her presence we did something we never have before…scrubbed the mini-blinds. Haha, no just kidding….sort of. I did drag the mini-blinds into the shower and scrubbed them by hand, which was extremely laborious but also very effective. No what I meant to share was that we decorated for the holidays! To be more precise, we strung Christmas lights all over the apartment using those little Command sticky clips (highly recommended btw).


Overnight we got a little snow, and sitting in the living room this morning with the snow falling and the lights twinkling, it felt very festive. Can you spot an Edith in the picture? She likes to sit on the cable box because it’s warm.

Hooray for visitors and the extra incentive they provide to clean, decorate, and tour your own city!

    I was lazy this year with my decorations and cleaning. Therefore I am completely smitten with your lights, and of course Edith.

    L’s sister has been staying with us for a little over a month now, and it has made me so much better at keeping our place clean! Not that I don’t try usually, but so often there’s something I’d rather do than sweep…

    Love the lights!

      Yes! Definitely helps incentivize chores that otherwise get kicked down the road 🙂
