Can you believe that Christmas is just a couple of days?
Are you ready? I might be. Close anyway.
But today it is all about the week that was- and some fun stuff coming your way in the new year.
Hammersky Vineyards & Balsam Hill Christmas Event
It was a whirlwind busy couple of days decking the halls and adding all the twinkles. And the event was a sold out show and huge amount of fun. I made a quick 2 minute compilation video of getting ready and the event- including a quick tour of the finished house and those delightful squeaky floors- even Santa made an appearance. 🙂 Hope you enjoy!
Last minute baking
I am doing some baking tomorrow- and some of my favorites are on the list to make.
These Chocolate Chip Pecan Shortbread cookies are so good- and so easy to make
in case you are looking for some last minute baking ideas.
All is calm… all is bright
I have been enjoying a quiet week home simply being this week.
One of the things I have been thinking about over the holiday season and in general as I get older
(isn’t that the way it is?)
Is that how quickly time zooms by and how when you are in the moment
in the busy or have a full calendar- sometimes you miss those quiet moments of magic.
So this season, I have made an effort to notice more.
I know that sounds strange but by noticing I mean- pausing on occasion.
It is incredible how things shift when you notice those opportunities to pause-
even for just a few minutes-
and soak up all the inspiration and beauty around you.
Speaking of a Christmas market- something we always like to try to find the time fit in
is the Victorian Christmas celebration – a simple spot to stop when heading north.
I remember attending this when I was a little girl- and it is such a magical little town
-especially dressed for Christmas.
My husband and I wandered around and shopped a little early (and in the sprinkles) with Sweet Pea
and it was absolutely beautiful.
I am done decking the halls and have moved on to cleaning and getting ready for guests.
So, sharing a few posts from the past for last minute ideas and any other decorating I didn’t get shared tomorrow and then- Christmas is here.
Again- how did the season ZOOOM on by so quickly?
I am going to take a bit of time to enjoy my family this next week & the week after Christmas
but I will be sharing some New Years Ideas soon-
(One of them might have to do with this table)
and I cannot WAIT to share some of the fun things
I am excited about in 2020.
I will also be doing a recap post- and a goals and dreams post
so get ready to do some baby stepping and reflecting with me.
See you tomorrow- Happy weekend all.
