I am a bit non traditional outside.  I use very little outdoor lighting, some lit wreaths on our upstairs windows and some candles in the windows.  However, my favorite things are seeing the Christmas tree through the windows and we also put a 7′ tree on a ledge above the front door.   When we were first married, a friend in New england did the tree above the door every year and from the moment I saw it, I knew that I wanted to do the same someday.  If we are being honest, my husband HATES carrying the 7′ tree up the ladder each year, but does it anyway because he loves me.  I appreciate that he’s still willing to do it year after year!



I would add more photos but as I mentioned, I’ve been giving myself a break and am not completely finished decorating inside so perhaps when I have my accessorizing details where I want them I will post those too!  Have a beautiful day!
