Kyle and I recently moved to a tiny apartment in Northern VA, and its the first Christmas where we haven't been out of town for the majority of the month so we actually get to enjoy decorating for the holiday!
Being that we now have 3 cats and two of them are holy terrors with the tree, we had to keep the ornamentation simple to avoid breakage, so I spent a day cutting out paper chains and snowflakes old school style, yay for zero-cost decorations!
I hung lights, chains and snowflakes all around the tiny living room portion of our apartment, and on the windows.
All is merry and bright. :)
