Holiday Apartment Tour + Hello Friday! Link Roundup

Happy Friday, everyone! Thanks for stopping by today.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Friday link roundup, but I’m back with some great posts today. I’m also sharing my holiday apartment tour. I really had fun decorating this year, and I hope you enjoy the photos!

My husband and I are spending today walking up 5th Avenue and taking in all the holiday window displays. So I should have some fun photos to share next week.
