Tis the season…

Saturday we spent a good part of the day putting up the tree. This picture is from 2 years ago, since last year we were just getting back and getting re-acclimated to our newlywed status. We didn’t put up the tree because  we wanted to bask in wedding feelings instead of  the holiday spirit.

This is the first time we have decorated in our new home. The main floor is twinkling.

Blessed? Ummmm, beyond my wildest dreams. I am overflowing with gratitude and anticipation of the weeks to come, knowing they will be filled with friends, cookies, laughter, and love.

How are holiday preparations going for you?
