I know I bring this up every year, but every year I'm determined to do things differently! I'm not a grinch, in fact I love Christmas, but I'm not a fan of pretending that it's the middle of winter when it's not! I wait for this beautiful summer season so longingly every year that I just can't bare to start mucking around with fake snow and winter festive decorations. I want to celebrate the warmth, the beautiful colours, flowers, ice cold drinks and days spent in long floaty dresses trying to keep cool. So this year I'm really going to go for it and fill the place with flowers from the garden and big paper lanterns. After all, Christmas in our family is more about coming together and having a good time than anything else.
Okay rant over :).
You can check out previous our (New Zealand) Christmas here. Next year will of course be a whole different story because we're going to have a little almost one year old... and I can hardly wait!!
