a few of my favorite things!

It's been a tough few weeks to say the least!, I figured I need to make a list of some things I am grateful for, happy about and feel blessed by!  (in no particular order, either!  :))

  • my God and my faith...
  • our tradition of seeing the nutcracker again this seemed particuarly great today!
  • hot cocoa afterwards with friends where we watched our daughters dance like little sugar plum fairies all through starbucks!
  • a roaring fire, sitting by the light of my beautifully "perfect" Christmas Tree
  • the amazing smell of my aspen candle
  • the homeade wrapping paper that my kids created
  • the elf on the shelf who continues to surprise and delight us each day!
  • that at 38 my mommy is still my mommy...even if she too confused to know right now!
  • snowflakes today...finally feels "Christmas-y"
  • my friends...simply put - they are ANGELS in my life!
  • Caramel Brulee Lattes from Starbucks - yum!
  • my comfy, cozy bed...
  • the sheer delight of seeing christmas thru my babies' eyes!
  • my church
  • that my sweet bryan is on vacation for the nest two weeks...can't wait to be together!
  • brunch with santa (tomorrow)
I think thats it for now!

Merry Christmas

Hello!  I have missed blog has fallen wayside to caring for 2 very ill parents who have both been hispitialized over the last month.  To say things have been crazy in an understatement!  I am trying hard to keep it all together and be what everyone "needs"...Mom, wife, daughter,sister and friend but I am failing I am sure...I thank God for this season of grace and beauty and celebration of our Savior's birth!  There is no better time in my eyes, to forgive, to love, to have compassion and gladness, to give to eachother and to look ahead with hope and excitement and anticipation for a new season of health and happiness and renewals...I wont be around much these next few weeks here on my blog, chances are I am trying to prepare Christmas in spite of feeling most "un-Christmas"...but my babies deserve the very best I can give them so I will turn my focus to them...

Blessings to you all this Season! xo
