(Here I am excited to get this beauty home. Of course, Shane is doing all the muscle work!)
Every year I look forward to decorating it, real or not, and rediscovering our favorite ornaments. Through the years I've started buying silver picture frame ornaments usually from Restoration Hardware (if we get to the mall) and I frame some of my favorite pictures from the past year or so. I especially love the ones of Isabella when she was younger.
(Needs some presents, doesn't it?)
We also just had Isabella's school band and choir concert in which she plays flute and sings. Our sweet tree glows behind her right before we head out. I love sitting by the tree at night after everyone goes to bed, especially if there is still a fire burning in the fire place. I hope you all find some peaceful and cozy moments this holiday. I haven't had many of those moments yet because life has been pretty busy over here, but once things settle down, they should come!
