I would love to take pictures after Christmas this year - then hand them off to the magic Christmas decorating fairy next year. Then, on the appointed day - I would come home from work, or shopping, or the movies --- and --- ta-da! I would walk into my perfectly decorated home. And I wouldn't be exhausted!
One of my Christmas decorations is a wreath that a good friend, Kathy H. made for me back in 1981. It has been 'front and center' in our Christmas decorations every year. It has hung in 7 different homes in 3 different states. It's one of the first things out each year. It reminds me of Christmases long ago....when I was single and dating the man who is now my husband. It reminds me of friendships that endure. It makes me feel love.
Merry Christmas all!
