Friday before Christmas I presented my team with bracelets handmade by me for the ladies and thoughtfully picked store bought gifts for the men; i created brown paper packages, tied up with string - one of my favorite things <3 Happy Happy Joy Joy

I spent the better part of Saturday afternoon putting ornaments on the Christmas Tree - it’s been a verrrrry long time since this has been my job!  It wouldn’t have taken so much time if I hadn’t spent several minutes waxing nostalgic about each sweet ornament - almost all of my ornaments have a reason for existing - other than to just hang on the tree.  Many are handmade by the children throughout the years or my very crafty sister; there’s a bunch of photo ornaments (my favorites); and I try to pick up an ornament from every vacation that we take; I date stamp as many as possible.  The tree is as beautiful this year as it always is, mostly for the lovely memories each ornament invokes.  The bread you see?  Well, that was baking while all this nostalgia was happening, making the house smell fabulous and homey.  It was a lovely afternoon. Happy Holidays <3
