Hi Amy! All of that sounds lovely. Today we had our first sign of snow and it happens to be my sons seventh birthday so they three kids were begging for hot chocolate. They love the wood burning stove, tiny marshmallows, hot chocolate and candied yams slathers in butter and marshmallows. I love seeing the wool mittens and sweaters and the crisp clean white snow on the ground. Also, the greens and reds and smell of pine.

Hi Amy,
One down, one to go!! :)
Sometimes I find myself viewing the holidays that way. LOL!!

I'm trying real hard to just SLOW Down and let myself Enjoy life, instead of always stressing and hurry through.
Wish me luck!! Hehee!

Looking forward to your Christmas decor photos.

Have a great weekend, my friend.
