Christmas in November!

It seems every year Christmas comes earlier and earlier. Why is it that people seem to skip over Thanksgiving and go from Halloween to Christmas? As we arrived in New Orleans this year, we were pleasantly surprised to be greeted with the most amazing Christmas d├ęcor at The Roosevelt Hotel. The lobby was covered in lights, crystal, and red and green ornaments!! It really did put me in the holiday mood. The elegance of the entire hotel really put Tamra and I in super redecoration mode and now we cannot wait to get home and do a little redecorating and put up a little holiday cheer! Take a look at the pictures and see if it inspires you…
