Twenty-five Days of Christmas

Welcome! I invite you to join our family as we celebrate Christmas throughout the month of December. Christmas is one of my favorite holidays. Each year I enjoy decorating my home with lights, candles, and special things I have collected along the way (I am quite sentimental when it comes to items in my home – if it has an emotional tie, it goes up!) Knowing that our holidays at home are numbered I am doing my best to soak up all that this time of year offers.
