advent calendar

December 1, 2013
There are some traditions that you’ll never get tired of. The holiday season is my favorite time of the year and some of my best childhood memories are getting up in the morning and being excited about what awaits me in the advent calendar. Starting the day with unpacking a little present is a great mood lifter on those dark December mornings… I’m super excited about the advent calendar my mom made for me this year!


It’s 24 (Christmas eve in Germany is celebrated on the 24th) individually packed little somethings to brighten up my mornings. I love how cheerful and bright it looks! I hung it above my bed and it’s the first piece of Christmas decoration in my room – seen that it’s December 1st I should really start decorating our apartment for Christmas!


I’m really excited about the gorgeous lace ribbons, strings etc. that I get to re-use for packing Christmas gifts 🙂
