I was in Home Depot yesterday, and for the first time ever I felt really relieved to see their entire holiday decor section set-up and blasting holiday music throughout the store. Usually holiday store displays in early October annoy me, but not this year, since I've been thinking about the holidays for a month now. I left Home Depot with a Philodendron that I promptly planted and put in my laundry/bath. Then I added some yarn wrapped star ornaments and wrapped the mirror with a strand of LED sparkle lights. I'm calling this room decorated and checking it off my list.
FYI....I have not started listening to holiday music at home, although I've been tempted. I'm trying to stave off holiday burn-out.
