Photo Whim - {Merry Christmas}

I personally have a firm belief that no Christmas products, decorations, music, lights or movies should NOT be brought out before Thanksgiving-with that said, the day after Thanksgiving is allowed to be the official jump-off to Christmas. Maybe it's just because I live in Arizona and the weather doesn't drop below 80 degrees before Turkey Day, or that it's always been my family's tradition to put up the tree the next day, but busting out the Christmas garb any earlier just doesn't feel right.

This year Jim and I did not get the energy to pull ourselves off of the couch long enough to get our tree out of the hall closet and bust out the decorations. I know we'll do it this weekend, but in the mean time I couldn't help but look at a little Christmas inspiration on weheartit, afterall I have been holding out.
