you know it's funny,
i'm sorta embarassed to tell ya'll this
but as much as i LOVE decorating our home at Christmas,
usually by Christmas day, dare i say after lunch
i'm ready for it all to be gone.
this year i am really enjoying our home.
maybe it's because i was a couple weeks later than usual getting things up
maybe it's because each year i simplify a little bit more
maybe, just maybe i'm a little more content.
as i came downstairs this morning
& the wonderful smell of the chubby tree
& the twinkling white lights against the windows on a dreary day
& the christmas cookies i had for breakfast
& the packages are all waiting to be opened by happy people...
i soaked it all in
& i love it.
i don't want it to be over....
ps--don't forget about our giveaway.
