It’s a family tradition that we’ve had ever since I was little. In July we put up a small tree, make simple stockings out of paper, and have a night of family, Christmas music, and small gifts. Christmas as it is meant to be, instead of what it’s become.
The tree was an absolute dream. My mother made these charming music-themed ornaments in black, red, and green. They are gorgeous! She’s so talented.
We made stockings out of paper and yarn. They were filled with candy, tiny picture frames, and small toys.
I needed this. My soul needed this. I needed to come home to my parents’ house and let them love on my kiddos for a week while we shared some holiday magic.
