Danica Favorite & Creating Christmas Traditions on The Christmas Tree Tour

We recently moved to our dream house in the mountains. Well, sort of. We are under construction as we’re having an addition built. With the move, we lost about a thousand square feet of house, but gained an incredible view and somewhere around eight more acres of land. So, for now, we’re cramped in a much smaller house, and most of our stuff is in storage.

The only space we had for a tree is in a small corner of our living room. We don’t have a mantel for our stockings, so they’re hanging out on a shelf in the dining room, which is currently acting as our computer area. 

Despite the challenges, we did our best to give our home a festive feel- it’s cozy but homey and we love it. 

We’re expecting a white Christmas, so with this view, I don’t think we really need a whole lot in the way of décor. It’s going to be a Christmas to remember. 

For us, it’s not so much about old traditions, but how we are looking forward to creating new traditions and memories in our new home. Next year, we’ll have more space, and who knows what great memories we’ll make!

Lawman on a Mission 

Former deputy Will Lawson is fighting to regain his reputation—and Mary Stone is his only lead to the bandit who framed him. Now that he's tracked Mary to Leadville, Colorado, Will needs the proud beauty to reveal her past. Instead, his efforts spark a mighty inconvenient attraction… 

Mary's only real crime is that she once believed an outlaw's lies. Still, she fears disclosing the truth to Will may land her in jail—and leave her young siblings without protection. Now she must choose between honesty and safeguarding her family. And if Will does clear his own name, can he convince the woman he loves to share it?

A self-professed crazy chicken lady, Danica Favorite loves the adventure of living a creative life. She and her family recently moved in to their dream home in the mountains above Denver, Colorado.  Danica loves to explore the depths of human nature and follow people on the journey to happily ever after. Though the journey is often bumpy, those bumps are what refine imperfect characters as they live the life God created them for. Oops, that just spoiled the ending of all of Danica’s stories. Then again, getting there is all the fun.

  1. WOW!!! GREAT VIEW. What area of CO are you in now? Merry Christmas to you!!!

  2. I remember the move on facebook, and you got chickens!!! Oh my stars, chickens are either my joy or my nemesis, depending on the day! And keeping the coyotes and fox and weasels away from them has been a learning experience! I love this, Danica...

    I love that you dared to do something different. We did the same thing 25 years ago, and I love being a country gal with weird critters, although I could do without the dead mouse behind the living room wall... Why did it have to pick Christmas week with company coming??? WHY????? :)

    Congrats to you and I love this rustic feel!

  3. What a beautiful view, Danica! And the "elbow room" acreage sounds wonderful--I see many, many happy seasons in your new location! Wishing you and your family an EXTRA SPECIAL Christmas!

  4. You have a beautiful view and the expectations of a larger home next year. And, it doesn't take a lot of room to make huge memories!
    Merry Christmas!!
