Can you believe it? In just a few more days we will be celebrating Christmas!
I must confess, my celebrating has begun! I am all caught up on commission work and at last, am able to dabble in my own art, such as my art journal. It felt so fabulous to sit by the Christmas tree early this morning, with my cup of coffee and watercolors. Our new little friend joined in! Although we have no children...
our home just seems much more complete now with the "Elf on the Shelf"! Any name suggestions would be appreciated in the comments, please, as we have not yet named our boy elf!
Presents have been purchased, wrapped, and are displayed beneath the tree. Donations, check!
Cards were all addressed and mailed soon after Thanksgiving.
Seriously, friends... This feels so incredibly nice! I must do this again next year! All I did differently was start earlier and stayed committed! I even did a complete purge with my clothes closet!
Oh, and then I did treat myself to a set of six Laura Mercier soufflé body cremes!
If you have not tried...
You really must.
I loved every scent, however, my personal favorite has so far, been the pistache.
I will now be requesting that Santa bring me a full size jar each year since it is a bit expensive.
We have enjoyed getting out and admiring pretty things...
There's just something about all of the lights, the music, the smells, and even the tv commercials that warm the heart each December.
I pray for world peace and for those who dread this time of year due to circumstances. Please, do not let these people go forgotten, dear ones. We can all give a smile, a hug, or a greeting card to help brighten someone's day!
Merry Christmas to all...
from our home to yours.
See you again soon!
