This Post Brought to You by Christmas


I want to thank you so much for your kind words on my last post.

I've been feeling the sadness of letting go of that particular dream in little hints and snatches the last couple weeks, but it wasn't until this week, when I met with my spiritual director and was able to process it in greater depth, that its connection to all that I've been meditating upon in the John 21 passage of late became so clear. 

So, thank you for reading and for sharing your sweet words with me. 


And now for something I've been looking forward to sharing with you for several days: our house, made over by Christmas! Won't you please accompany me on a photo tour of our home, holiday style?

It's beginning to look like Christmas.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Twinkle lights ... so pretty.

Twinkle lights strung around the wide doorframe.

Tree shimmer.

A tree gets added, and the room begins to glow.


Glow x 2. 

Christmas baubles.

Don't forget the red and gold Christmas baubles!


Love that shimmer.

Tree detail.

Cranberry ribbon wound around the tree, then tied with a bow on top.

Come enjoy the tree.

Don't forget to sit and enjoy the tree. 

Just walked in the house, and this is the cozy sight that greeted me. Sigh.

And when you walk in the house, savor the sight that greets you.
