You’ll have to forgive me for the quote that’s teetering on the line of cheesiness, but who doesn’t love Bing Crosby? Especially at this time of year. He and David Bowie singing Little Drummer Boy is an essential part of my Christmas playlist every year. As is watching White Christmas. :) Plus, I was listening to the She & Him Christmas album while I was working on these last night, so that might have been a contributing factor.

This photo is of my parents’ advent candles, a tradition that’s a crucial part of any Scandinavian Christmas. You light one on each of the four Sundays leading up to Christmas. My dad and I are always the ones that get ridiculously excited every time we can light one more. And I love that it means the brighter the light, the closer you are to Christmas. Hope you all get as cheesy about the holidays as I do!
