Month 2 Day #1 - The holidays are here!

They're here! The holidays! I'm one of those that most people hate as I start listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving, even though Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.

I prefer Thanksgiving for many reasons. One because it's all about the 3 F's: family, food and football. There's no stress to get the perfect gift. Just to make the perfect pie.

But I also love Thanksgiving because it is the beginning of the holiday season. While Christmas is great and I love everything that comes with Christmas, the actual day is always sort of a downer as it means the season is over. But with Thanksgiving, there are 4, or sometimes 5, weeks to enjoy the lights, ornaments, tinsel, Christmas carols and movies, the baking, Christmas cards.

Due to my recent situation, this Christmas is decidely low key compared to Christmases past. But that doesn't mean I'm not celebrating to the best of my ability. I have decided not to get a tree this year. But in order to display my favorite ornaments, I decided to decorate this baker's stand I have as if it were a tree.

I know it's hard to see but there are lights wrapped around it too. Well if you look at the bottom you can kinda see them. I even wrapped a Christmas tree blanket around the bottom. And you can see the ornaments hanging from the shelves.

So this my friends means Daily Photo is back! Every day for the month of December, I'm going to post a photo I've taken that day. Would love to hear what you think.

And I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving!
