Christmas in September, Bronner’s

I just have a mini-post today. I’m out on the road, traveling for work (no place fun to share, unfortunately) so I thought I’d pop up just a few pictures from a quick day trip I did a few weekends ago.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I took a trip up to Frankenmuth recently.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that in Frankenmuth (a small, Bavarian-style town in Michigan) there is a store called Bronner’s and it is my own Heaven on Earth.

What’s Bronner’s you newbies may be asking. A Christmas store. No. Not just a Christmas store. It’s THE Christmas store.

When it comes to Christmas, I could put Buddy the Elf to shame. I could be the Cheermeister of Whoville. I could melt the coldness from the Winter Warlock’s heart.

A store that celebrates that while covered in twinkle lights, ornaments of every shape and size and blasts Christmas music. It’s how I imagine sports fans feel come the Super Bowl.

Every year I visit, I buy a big bag full of ornaments to the point where, in a few years, you will see no green on my Christmas tree. Just sparkles, bright colors and bells.

What I didn’t mention last time I told you about Bronner’s, was that just down the road, is a big shopping center.

So big, a cowboy driven trolley will shuttle you between the different sections.

Just don’t expect any extra car space on your drive home.

If you want to read my full travel post on Frankenmuth and Broner’s, you can read it here.

Frankenmuth is a trip I try to take every year and I love it way too much to not make at least a tiny post about it.

Besides, who doesn’t like to be reminded by a Christmas fanatic that there are less than 100 days until Christmas?

Now, be honest with me. . .  is it too early to start decorating?
