BLOGMAS Day 2 - Christmas Tree Reval

This post is sweet and to the point, just like our Christmas tree.  Or should I call it Nala's favorite napping fort?  Get a cat, they said...

So, for those of you who know me really well, you know that I'm no lover of overly decorated indoor spaces.  I just feel like it's pointless for me to stress over putting up a bunch of holiday decorations around my house for two weeks just to take them down the day after Christmas.  I'm trying to remove any inconvenience from my life, and this would inconvenience me.  I'm sure once I have kids though, this will most likely change.

I grew up in a house full of lots of holiday decorations, and I absolutely loved it - but I always wondered how my mom had the patience to hang up every holiday card, find a snowman that glowed all different colors of the rainbow, meticulously lay out the littlest and cutest manger on the book shelf, and put perfectly matching candles in each window.  She always made it look so warm and inviting, and she certainly had the calmness to do so, but that's one trait I just didn't receive from her.  Don't get me wrong, I love to see holiday decorations at her house and at YOUR house, but I'm just not fond of overly decorating my own.  Ya feel me?  [ Angela, this is in no way referring to your little Christmas squirrels, we know I love them :)]  So, with that being said, I'm no Grinch, and I do love the sparkle of a Christmas tree in my living room, so here's my Christmas tree reveal.  What does yours look like?
