Have you ever longed for the simple pleasures of country living,
where interior décor is relaxed yet rich in character, where children run free in wide-open spaces and finding the perfect Christmas tree is just a short prairie walk away? That dream came true for Julie Thomas, a loving wife and mama of three boys, a home and lifestyle blogger (littlefarmstead.com) and the author of Little Farmstead Living.
Julie created a niche community and posts about decorating advice, family recipes and real life living on the homestead. What makes Julie’s accounts so special? She’s personable and shares relatable, heartfelt stories that feel like a visit with a dear friend.
Christmas is a wonderful time of the year at Julie’s homestead, and the holiday decorations glow with a warm, jovial ambience. “One of the most fun places to decorate for Christmas would have to be the porch,” says Julie. “It’s kind of like the gift wrapping of the house and it’s the first thing people see.”
For Julie, living at the farmstead is a reminder of how much joy there is in the anticipation of Christmas. Her little farmstead is nothing short of magical, and Julie knows it. “Christmas has always been important to me and my family,” says Julie. “It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!”
