It's that time of the year & we are in the midst of the holiday season. Although this is the busiest time of the year for Erin McDermott Jewelry, I am bound and determined to enjoy the weeks surrounding Christmas and to "be present" during special moments with family  & friends.  With Christmas rapidly approaching, I knew that we had to get on the decorating train and start transforming our casa into a winter wonderland (or at the very least, decorate our tree). The other evening, we had the quintessential holiday night. Bryan and I hung the ornaments, strung the lights around the tree, placed candles in the windows, played holiday music & sat by the fire drinking wine and talking about the year. It's moments like these when you've just got to turn the computers & phones off , shut the work down, return the emails and calls the following day and remember to live in the moment. *below are a few photos from the night: our first Christmas Tree in our new house, my favorite holiday candle (the scent from this candle will be sure to get your holiday spirit soaring), and Sukie checking out her favorite bulldog ornament.
