December 11, 2014


I was so thankful to be able to rearrange some plans yesterday and have a quiet night at home - and decorate the tree! We found a real beauty this year, just the right size and the house is full of the smell of pine. There's nothing like sitting back and relaxing with the tree twinkling beside you. Let the holidays begin!


It's beginning to feel a lot like the holidays! Actually, it already does feel like the holidays. It's so nice to have the awesome tree in the house, it smells so wonderful and makes me want to tuck in under the covers and enjoy the outdoors, indoors.


Totally crashed and burned yesterday. Spent most of the day in bed. Had a little time on the computer to work on a video slideshow of my trip to the chocolate shop. I love this photo and how you can see me with the owner Bernard checking us out from the store. I totally pushed it too far.

Oh, Suzie, I'm so sorry to hear that it was too much. You look fabulous in this picture (and I totally notice a resemblance to Auntie Laima!) And LOL, I totally giggled at the view over your shoulder. I'm glad you had an adventure but now I hope you get some much needed rest. ((bighugs))

PS I'm going to go back and add pictures for this week. With Planning Day and my birthday it has been so busy. I can't wait to share it all with you.

Oh that looks so beautiful Jamie! And adorable! I miss the smell of pine. Well done! We have to find a new little tree for our living room.

Yeah, yesterday was brutal. Got some sleep so I'm feeling much better.

Oh thank you! And wow, it's tree, I can see the resemblance as well to Auntie Laima, that's awesome.

Isn't that a funny photo of Bernard photobombing? I love it.

What an awesome tree moment Jamie! It was such a treat to decorate the tree last night. Here is to the holidays!! And looking forward to seeing your pics from the week, I added a bunch too!

Awesome picture Suzie! I love that the owner ended up in it, hehe. And you look totally glam! I would have had no idea it was such a tough day.

Last of the late adds from me.
