Oh my goodness, y’all. I’ve been working my little tail off for the past couple of weeks trying to get my house ready for this Christmas house tour! If you’ve landed here from my friend Kristen’s blog, Maison Mass, WELCOME! Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoy our tour.
Let me fill you in if you are new to my little corner of the blogosphere. My name is Cheyenne and I am the brains (or lack thereof) here at Sense & Serendipity. At the end of October I suddenly and unexpectedly lost my husband to a massive heart attack. He was 36 and we have two small children. As you can imagine, losing my love and best friend has rocked our world. I very seriously thought about cancelling my involvement in this home tour but in the end, I had more reasons to go through with it than not. First, continuing with this tour gave me something to focus on during a very difficult time. I am the type of person that needs to stay busy, so having a long to-do list has helped me to “just keep swimming.” Second, and most importantly, I knew that I owed it to my two sweet babies to make this Christmas just as magical as I would have done if their Daddy were still alive. They deserve to have a special Christmas and I decided I would do everything in my power to make that happen.
So here we are. It is a bittersweet thing decorating this house this year. We only moved in 5 months ago and it is our first Christmas here, and it will likely be our only Christmas here at this house. My husband loved Christmas as much as I did and he was the Clark Griswold of every neighborhood we lived in. I know that he would be proud of me for decorating our house despite all that’s going on and that makes me happy. So welcome to our Christmas home!
There you have it: the Bell Family Christmas home! I hope you enjoyed virtually wandering around and I hope I have inspired you with your Christmas decor. Don’t forget to visit the next home on the tour: my friend Lynn at Back to the South! Also, here’s a list of all the talented bloggers participating in the Merry & Bright Christmas Home Tour. Go check out their amazing Christmas homes:
Merry Christmas to you and your family. I truly hope that you feel the joy and peace of our Savior this Christmas season. Be blessed!
