Because it's such a busy time of year, my blog has been neglected. It seems to always be that way but it's hard to squeeze everything in...I don't know how some of you do it!
I hung plain grapevine wreaths on my windows last week at 1:00 a.m. just so I would have something up.
I finally took each one down and embellished them just a little last night.
While I was doing this, I thought, these are just fine. I don't have to make them real "fancy" this year. And I realized how much I don't want to miss by making things too complicated.
The memories of doing things with friends and family are what stays with us, not that I didn't add berries to my wreaths :)
We've made gingerbread houses with friends,
went ice skating a few times,
and have baked loads of Christmas cookies. (cookie dough truffle recipe here.)
It's been fun.
As far as decorating is concerned, it is a very simple Christmas this year. I've got enough lights, enough gifts, and enough ornaments.
I've been so very blessed with my family and business, I am grateful.
And just in case you don't hear from me before the New Year...
