May your day be full of wonderful moments.
Take time to hear the silence.
Then take time to hear hear the laughter, love, and hope of life.
May your day be full of Love, Wonder and Inspiration.

Good Morning
I hope December is finding you all well.
We have a few celebrations this month.
What a wonderful, sparkly, exciting, month December is. Things to celebrate of course are Christmas, Holiday time, some down time for a quiet moment, Winter Solstice, the end of our year and welcoming a New Year.
I have been asked to do a demonstration in one of our stores in town next year. So I have been throwing some ideas around. I will let you know what I decide and when it will be.
I have a few Christmas decorations left if you are interested.

Have you started your Christmas baking? I think I will start this week. Shortbread with a dash of Lavender. Then Shortbread traditional with a cherry on top.

Our Grandson
Posted by Picasa
Decorating, we have been having fun with our house over the weekend. Our decorating would never make a magazine but we sure do have fun.
My oldest son has been home so we have been doing a lot of visiting, the boys have been playing and just good ole fun.
Our tree is done in quite a bit of white and a few bundles of Lavender. I really like it but the pictures just do not do it justices.
I am off to turn down lights, settle the fire and talk some kids into bed time. I hope your night is peaceful.

We went on an amazing drive.
