“Christmas… that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance — a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.”
~Augusta E. Rundel

We have indeed been wrapped. Wrapped in Christmas’ beautiful blanket. Though the weather outside is still far from frightful (though we’re packing our bags and headed for snow in just a short couple of days!!!!), we’re allowing the cozy threads of Christmas cheer to weave their way through our days. The recitals have been grand, the celebrations with family, lighting candles and baking yummy treats warm our home and bellies and thankfully I’m on the mend from a yucky (but quickly passing) tummy bug. So as we continue our tradition of saving the night of Christmas Eve and the joy of Christmas morning together as a family, opening new pajamas, happy memory making and laughing as we burrow deeper under the cover of Christmas… we want to wish you and those you love a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR as well!!
