"Happy Anniversary Mr. P. "

37 Years ago we began our marriage on a day much like yesterday. The day was cloudy and full of snow. Roads became slick very quickly, it didn't detour our wedding.

My Christmas Tree 2015

As I lay on the floor the other day looking up at the Christmas tree I began to reflect upon this past year. It's been a year of ups and downs. More downs than I care to count. The ups are coming slowly, I'm beginning to climb the rungs of the ladder to a happy place.

Christmas Touches in the Guest Bath

I'm not sure I've ever shared the guest bath. It's a nice sized bath that needed a bit of paint and yes those popcorn ceilings scrapped.

Christmas in the Kitchen

Once the construction began I stopped putting out any Christmas. There were too many other things going on to go over the top. Decorating the cream colored hutch in the breakfast area is always a favorite of mine. Since it's a ways from all of the boards coming and going it was safe to add some Christmas finery to it's already cute self.

Touches of Christmas in the Master Bedroom

There's something about a pillow that can change up an area in a short sweet second. They add character and life to a dull space. My love affair of pillows has gotten out of control.

Christmas in the Entry

In the middle of my Christmas decorating is when I decided to start scrapping the popcorn off the ceilings.

I know it's a process a journey one I'm working my way through. Taking out one of the many nativity scenes has helped, the meaning behind it is precious to me.

Guest Bedroom Remodel Begins

In my last post I shared the house is as decorated as it's going to be this year. Thanks to all for the well wishes, I finally got over the bug, it hung on for what seemed forever. I know many of you spent Thanksgiving with friends and family enjoying your fabulous meal of turkey and all the fixings.

Christmas in the Office

The month of November is behind us and December is in full swing. I had good intentions after the shops open house to get the house fully decorated for the holidays. I had planned to go all out and try to truly enjoy the season this year. My plans were changed ever so slightly when I was hit with some type of a bug. Not feeling good was certainly not on my agenda. Still not feeling 100%
I'm not one to give up and just give plugging along.
