That Valentine's Day is really over. I've been wanting to post for spring for a while but just needed a break. I always feel more motivated to blog after stepping back for a bit. Plus, we finally replaced our broken laptop and blogging is a ton easier without trying to edit pictures on a computer that may as well be prehistoric (that's 8 in computer years in case you were wondering).
One thing I love about having a neutral home is how easy it makes it to decorate for holidays. Just a few bits of seasonal color here and there and things start looking festive pretty quickly. Plus having kids makes a huge impact on holiday decor over here. I started off doing very neutral spring and Easter items, white bunnies, neutral colored eggs, vintage postcards.....you know what I mean. But then something crazy happened....the kids started complaining. Yeah, imagine that. They wanted pastels, plastic eggs, spring colors, fun things to look at.
And even though sometimes it makes me cringe, I realized, this is their home too. So now I let them pick out a few things and it isn't much but to see how excited they get when the holidays change around here is worth throwing a few ugly plastic eggs in jar.
