At times life can really be trying. For most, we have to plan our time with family and friends, save for the things we need and want, and have many responsibilities to tend to (food, a roof over our head, and electricity). It’s not easy to do this day in and day out. But these things, I am thankful for. From these we learn responsibility, lessons, love, and truly what is important. Sometimes we struggle and other times we look around and realize our accomplishments.
For those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving on the 22nd take the time to tell the ones you love that you are thankful for their love and friendship. For all of you reading, I am thankful for you. Thank you for enriching my life, sharing your stories, and allowing me to learn and grow. I appreciate you.

With much love,
Ev’rywhere you go, it’s glistening with a soft glow. Christmas cards, cookies, townsfolk gathering for the lighting of the decorations under the winter sky. Homes open for celebration, comfort foods, then coming together to celebrate the reason for the season. It’s always the time of year we take extra time to remember those not as fortunate and those that have to work during holidays to keep us safe while we enjoy ours.
Setting the stage in preparation of the Christmas season on Thanksgiving weekend has always been my family’s tradition. We unpack the boxes of our favorite decorations, really it’s like unpacking memories of Christmas past in anticipation of making new ones. Every year that goes by, and as I grow older, the season is precious to me. It’s about family and friends. Seeing the joy in their eyes and the love in their heart.
Here are some of my favorite decorations and you will see a few items from Pen Paper and Petals Studio.
Happy decorating and joyous celebrations!
With much love,
