Hey there! I'm Linda! I was born and raised in Maine, spent the last 6 years in Portland, and now call the Boston area my home!
Most days you can find me playing on the floor with my daughter, writing love letters to my husband, and reading with a cup of tea!
I am mostly known for being able to find all the things my husband has lost, making as much food as I can from scratch, my obsession with chips and salsa, and my mad organization skills.
A lot of things change once you have a child. One thing in particular, is how I feel about certain times of the year. Before I had Lily, I didn’t really care too much about decorating for Christmas (beyond the tree and hanging lights in the living room!), and I didn’t need to – my sister usually went all out and did it!
But now Lily is getting older and I want this time of year to feel as magical to her as it did to me when I was growing up. I put out an all call on Facebook about decorating for Christmas for less than $50 and got some really great thoughts! I went out shopping with my sister and Lily and had a goal of not spending more than $20. I want to start small and each year add a little bit more! I ended our search spending $35 and feeling pretty good about it!
A friend suggested I share photos when I was done, so here I am 🙂 One of my favorite things is the paper chain. Lily and I had a lot of fun and she was really involved with coloring on the paper before I cut them into strips! I had intended to make it for our archway, but it ended up being WAY too long so I decided to hang them from the curtain rods 🙂 Oh, and I forgot to take a picture of it, but I bought this awesome metal sign for the yard outside that says “Merry Christmas” with a snowman!
It’s simple, and there’s not a whole lot, but that’s how I like to roll!
