Christmas is but a few days away (yay!) and while I started this month trying to slow down, things sped up pretty quick.

This was mostly due to our decision to hit the road 10 days earlier than planned to visit with family for the holidays (single-digit temps seem to have that effect on us!).

RV Christmas Tour

Before we began our 1400+ mile journey we did take some photos of our RV decorated for Christmas. I wanted to keep things simple, natural, and cozy. No-fuss and easy to pack up. Nothing crazy creative here, mainly lights and real greenery, which was pretty much dead by the time we took these photos and videos, ha! However, I can say we’ve enjoyed many Hallmark Christmas movies snuggling up underneath our twinkling lights.

We were unable to cut our tree down from the forest this year because the local options experienced heavy snowstorms the day before we had planned to head out. We did find a beautiful tree from a local farm though.

This is also the first year I happily brought in juniper because in the past it’s always smelled like cat pee to me.

Anyone else?!

After spending time around Bend last year, it now reminds me of Oregon.

…and cat pee.

I spent my first week in Oregon freaking out that our cats peed on my clothes since the smell followed us wherever we went. I spent the next week googling why it smelled like cat pee in Bend. Seriously.

I was relieved to discover it was the juniper and not me.

Anyway, I bought some bundles of juniper this year and wreaths with some mixed in. Eric wasn’t thrilled and the more it dried, the more it smelled just like cat pee to us. So it had to go.

Can someone please leave a comment that doesn’t smell this? Are we crazy? Does this only happen to those with cats?

Oh well, I tried. I love the look of juniper but may have to stick to faux options in the future.

It probably would have looked better had we used lights with white cords around the door and kitchen, but oh-well. Maybe next year.

Before packing up we did shoot a couple of quick walkthrough tours on my phone, which you can watch below. This was a couple of weeks ago and may not be the best quality, but we hope it brings you some holiday cheer!

While we had to ditch the garland before hitting the road, our tree hitched a ride in our shower and made it to our destination safely.

So far, we’ve stopped in 2 states, visiting my dad along the way (which was the best!!) and this past week was spent with Eric’s parents and sister. We’re heading out tomorrow so we can spend Christmas day with my mom and sister.

Needless to say, it’s been a family-packed holiday, which is all I ever want for Christmas. Well, that and a real tree….

I’ll admit it’s been somewhat disappointing to put some projects and posts on hold, but I am sooooooo grateful to have been able to visit with family we rarely ever see. I’ve had to remind myself a couple of times to let go of the guilt, put down my phone, and to stay present. It’s made the time spent with our family so much more wonderful and special.

I hope you’re able to do the same this week.

Anyway, we hope you enjoy these photos of our RV Christmas tour!

Merry Christmas!

    Beautiful! Merry Christmas to you all (kitties included)! Yes, I agree on the juniper smell; I don’t think everyone can smell it though.
    Take care,

    Beautiful- as always- so glad you posted- I have been stalking, umm, I mean scouring your site these last few weeks as we are in the middle of our first 5th wheel reno (maybe last!! haha) and I was first inspired by your work. I was praying for you both for the last few weeks! Merry Christmas!

    Cat pee bushes..my husband and I have called junipers this for over 20 years and you are the first in these years who have thought the same!!!! Relieved to hear that we are no longer the only ones who smell this hideous scent. Thank you for sharing your cozy home and happy 2020!

    Great videos. Looking for ideas for our 5th wheel for this 2020 Christmas.
    What did you use to keep the garland and little lights up around the doors and windows. I can’t see for the life of me any tape, velcro or anything.
