There’s one part however that he’s never really enjoyed. That’s putting lights on the house. But he did it for years………for me, because I loved them!
Bless his heart, one year, he MADE icicle lights. Now this was before you saw them everywhere available to purchase. We saw a Victorian home that had them outlining their house and I fell in love with them! We stopped and asked the folks where they purchased them (well Jason asked for me) and they said that they made them. So Jason came home and spent hours making them by stringing lights onto wire (made from clothes hangers). They were much prettier than the ones you can even purchase now. They hung so perfect! We used those for years and they were beautiful.
However, he finally convinced me that he wanted to try something different and that I would love it. He explained his plan and I wasn’t really that impressed. But then again, I wasn’t the one out there hanging lights every year (on a steep roof), so, I reluctantly agreed to it. He said he’d try it and if I didn’t like it, we could reconsider it next year. I thought that sounded fair.
That was the beginning of our new outdoor Christmas décor. I still love looking at lights, and I think they’re beautiful! But this just seems to fit our home. We get lots of positive comments on it and how it glows.
Our outdoor Christmas decor these days is just simple wreaths, greenery, and bows illuminated with flood lights.
Jason is happy. I’m happy. That’s a good thing. :)
Thank you so much for stopping by! Merry Christmas! :)
