A touch festiveness

24 Dec

Merry Christmas Eve to all you wonderful readers! I thought I’d give you a quick tour of some of the simple holiday touches I’ve added to our apartment this year.

This is the most excited I’ve ever been to see everyone open their presents because I found so many neat things.
