Christmas Greetings!

Here’s hoping this post finds you happily ensconced someplace cozy with loved ones on this fine Christmas morning!  Hubby and I are curled up with our beagle (who seems somehow to take up more than half of the couch despite her small size, but who also knows she can absolutely get away with it because she’s so cute…) and are admiring our diminutive Christmas tree:


We did not wake up to snow on the ground, but thanks to modern technology, we can still have a white Christmas and share it with you no matter in what climate you live:

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season!  🙂

Merry Christmas :)

December’s been a crazy-busy month, but I didn’t want to let it go by without wishing you and yours a very happy holiday season, so… Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  To help get you in a celebratory mood, here are some festive holiday music samples for you, starting with a clip from the movie Love Actually–who doesn’t like a little romantic comedy mixed in with their Christmas fun?

And for those of us who are dreaming of a white Christmas but find ourselves nowhere near snow, here’s a little dose of that, too:

But if all you really want to do is curl up in front of a cozy fire, sip a little something hot, and snuggle with someone you love or at least–hopefully–like an awful lot, here’s a fire of your own that’s nicely low-maintenance:

Warmest holiday wishes!  🙂
