Blogging Really is About Friendship

I couldn't let this year end without a look back at some of the blessings of this blog. Blogging can be a lone wolf kind of activity with all the time that is spent behind the computer screen. I'm definitely not a loner type of girl though so I think you'll quickly see what my favorite parts of blogging are.

Merry Christmas

Thank you for reading this year. 
Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas filled with love and joy.

First Friday Home Tour #10 Featuring Our Craftsman Cottage

Good morning! I have such a treat for you with this month's First Friday Home Tour. 

Today I'm welcoming Sonja whose home I spotted on Instagram.  Sonja's Instagram feed is the kind that makes you stop in your tracks and stare!!  Her gorgeous home caught my eye quickly because it is the perfect Craftsman style cottage loaded with beautiful details.

Hello December!

Good morning friends!

Didn't mean to drop off the scene but then again it happens to me every year!
I love every single bit of Christmas but I'm not as speedy and with it as some. 
Things are far from perfect here and that's ok.

Christmas is for J O Y!

I'm taking my time, digging through boxes, and bringing out little bits of Christmas here and there. We are ordering pizza and watching Gilmore Girls. We are staring at the twinkle lights and marveling at the ornaments that our kids made when they were tiny. No perfection...just joy. 

I'll be back soon with pictures of our imperfect Christmas
Please visit tomorrow for an absolutely amazing First Friday Home Tour. :)
