Mid December holiday greetings! Our daughter came home from college yesterday so now it’s a week of Christmas cheer for us, wrapping gifts and baking treats. My daughter loves to cook so I gladly handed the reins to her for making dinners this week.
I finished a little bit more decorating, I moved our tree to the family room this year instead of the living room, and my faux lighted garland up the stairs always looks festive during the season. Most of my shopping is complete so I’ll be spending the week in my coziest pajamas watching holiday movies and snuggling with my family.
Favorite links from the week:
