Simple Festive

 As I was browsing through the new issue of Better Homes and Garden I wished that we had a more peaceful time to get into the Holiday mood. I would decorate our house slowly, bake Xmas cookies for every friend, drink spiced wine just for the spirit..:) But our Advent is not like that... because we live far away, and because of our jobs, schools and other obligations we usually arrive HOME (Hungary) just before Christmas Eve... But I'm thankful for that - we can be with our parents, relatives and friends. This is more important than the perfect decoration and perfect food. This year will be a little different: I will be home a bit earlier – although it is not for pleasure either; I have to take my Mom to physical therapy - but let’s hope for the best.... Because I will be home 2 weeks before Christmas I can decorate our house .... Fortunately we don't need a lot...:) I like modest decorations, I'm not into trends (all white tree one year, blue tree the next year etc:) so it will be easy. I still think that our most beautiful tree was our first little tree after we had got married... Just red real apples and handmade honey cookies... It was so simple and cute:) Anyways, I would like to share few ideas what I've found in the magazine - you might like some of them, too.

Ahogy lapozgattam a Better Homes and Garden magazint, arra gondoltam milyen jo lenne, ha tobb nyugodt idonk lenne a karacsonyi keszuletekre, rahangolodasra. Lassan diszitgetnem a lakast, sutnek finom sutemenyeket a baratoknak, mikozben forralt bort kortyolgatnek - a hangulat kedveert....:)  De a mi Adventunk nem ilyen - messze elunk, munkank, gyerekeink tanulmanyai, es ezer egyeb teendoink miatt sokszor orulunk, hogy Szentestere hazaerunk Szegedre. De ez nem panasz - halas vagyok, hogy ott lehetunk, egyutt lehetunk azokkal, akik a legfontosabbak. Ez, ami igazan fontos, nem a perfekt dekoracio, vagy a perfekt unnepi menu....Iden kicsit maskepp lesz, mert en jovoheten mar otthon leszek - sajnos, ez sem a gondtalan unnepi keszulodes miatt, hanem mert Anyumat kell fizioterapiara hordanom.....de remeljuk rendben lesz minden!  Akkor lesz idom  kicsit dekoralni is...szerencsere az egyszerubb dekoraciokat szeretjuk, ugyhogy nem lesz nehez dolgom.:)  Trendek sem erdekelnek, nem kell minden evben uj kollekcio a fara sem:)  Meg mindig ugy erzem a legelso kicsi fank volt a legszebb, eskuvonk utan ( mult szazad) .... csak a piacon vasarolt, gyonyoru piros almak voltak rajta es hazi mezes sutemenyek...Nagyon egyszeru volt es nagyon szerettuk:)
De most nehany otletet szeretnek megosztani, amit az ujsagban lattam - hatha masnak is tetszik:)
