Letter #426: APT Decor

Dear APT,

You’re looking mighty festive these days if I may say so myself! We’ve been able to up our game just a bit since last Christmas…Considering all we had was our version of the Charlie Brown Christmas tree last year, upping our game wasn’t too difficult!

The stockings were hung by the fire….well, at least they were hung! Nearly every piece of decor was either given or loaned to us! Love seeing people’s generosity. We acquired the tree last year, Mama Roth sent the Country Cousins nativity set (the childhood collectibles my sisters and I loved collecting!), Val’s family sent the wreath and greenery and Val purchased the stockings. You were decorated and ready for Christmas for nearly free! That’s what I’m talking about!

I love Christmas decor, but I’m not in the stage of life where I want or need a full sized tree and super elaborate decorations. In my opinion, you are perfect. Quaint. Simple. Cozy. This is the exact feel I long for in you. Now, if I could just buckle down and finish decorating for everyday life and achieve this without Christmas decorations, you would be perfect.

Welcome to Christmas in the APT

I'm Lindsay. I write letters at least one a day to be exact. I love words of affirmation, the OKC Thunder, Oklahoma State, tempos with v-necks, ice water, garage sales, budgeting and Blue Bell. Processing life and quality conversation make me tick. I'm simple yet complex all at the same time. My family and friends mean more to me than the world, but my identity lies in Christ.
