Welcome to the first Christmas at our new lake house. I know, I know, I’m not your typical blogger who has her Christmas pictures up two weeks before Thanksgiving so as to inspire you in your own decorating endeavors. I’ll admit, it’s taken me longer to decorate this year with all of the figuring out where things will go!
It’s also been hard to get a post up because, as I’ve said before, the Internet speed is incredibly slow out here in the country (they’ve promised that will change sometime in the future) and it takes hours and hours to do just one post.
Since I’ve already spent far too much time playing with my photos I’m going to breeze through with very little talk today and a whole lot of pictures.
I’ll start with the dining room, which is immediately to the right as you come in the front door.
I did a natural centerpiece this year with fresh greens and pinecones on silver and white.
Beyond the dining room is the entry hall.
Which is open to the great room.
The great room is open to our kitchen dining nook.
And right around the corner from that is the kitchen. As you can see, our living space is pretty open here.
The dining nook and kitchen look directly out onto the screened porch, and the lake beyond.
If you were to walk out onto the deck you would see another door which leads into our master bedroom. I haven’t added many Christmas decorations here. Only a small tree and three wreaths above the bed. By the way, you can also get to our bedroom from a hallway behind the kitchen. I didn’t want you to think we had to walk outside to go to bed 🙂
We have many beautiful sunrises at the lake and this is what I’m hoping our company will see on Christmas morning. That just might make it the best Christmas ever!
I’m praying for faster Internet speeds so I can share posts with you more often. In the meantime, I do post updates almost daily on Instagram if you’d like to follow along there.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas and many blessings in the New Year.
