Love the Home You Have: Simply Inspired Holiday Series!

love-the-home-you-have-the-inspired-roombook page from Love the Home You Have

Are you feeling inspired already for the holiday season, or are you slightly overwhelmed (or both!) at this point? Or maybe like me you are just in denial. I’m excited, but also wishing our kitchen would be done in time for Thanksgiving dinner and that I wouldn’t be Christmas decorating around a heavy kitchen sink in a box on the dining room floor.

Isn’t that how it goes though? Most of us don’t have the perfect house or perfect circumstances for the perfect holiday. Even if you are in your sweet spot in life right now, expectations for what this season should look like can sometimes distract us from what we really want it to be.

I could hardly believe it when my Instagram feed started filling up with homes fully decorated for Christmas already on November 1 (and before)! That feels early even for me (See my post from the past when I was defending having a tree on Thanksgiving!).

Whether you are eager to baste that turkey and ready to deck the halls, or just wondering how in the world (or even if) you are going to pull yourself or your home together in time to celebrate or entertain, I have a brand new series for us this year :)

This series will be designed to inspire a little more joy in the season for all of us, no matter what shape or size or state our home is in this year. I’ll share simple practical ways to transform your home, heart and holidays. It isn’t just about decorating and gift giving (although I’ll offer lots of inspiration for that!), it’s about all the ways we can start savoring this season at home, right where we are.

Love the Home You Have: Simply Inspired Holidays kicks off here on The Inspired Room this Monday!

Will you join me? :)

As a free gift from me to you, you can download a copy of a “Seasons” art print, based on the one featured in my book photo (above)! You’ll find various sizes and other artwork options right here. Enjoy!
