thankful and decor day

"There is nothing like a Fall winter blast of snow"
I've been thinking a lot of how thankful I am for everything...My health, loving family and friends, my tiny home on a backroad in the pines, my rewarding career and my husband's too, and of course my faith- cause ya gotta have it! As we all snuggled on the couch last night for movie night, dog included, with our home so cozy, candles lit, and afghans covering our toes it filled me up with such a feeling that this is what it's all about. Being together and enjoying the simple things. I wish all of you the same as you gather on Thanksgiving, as it's a time for quite reflection, not busting your buttons! (I think we're all guilty of that ;)

As it begins...
My sister and I are busy planning activities for all the cousins; Gingerbread house construction, baking dough ornaments, family holiday dinners and yes, christmas shopping! It's all so much fun!

New snow shoes have been purchased from L.L. Bean for my son for x-mas and the ski gear comes next. We are looking forward to winter days here, hiking through the woods with our snow shoes and hitting the slopes!

Decor Day:
Today, I will begin cleaning out a dry sink that I own. It's time to reorganize my dishes, switch plates and do some redesigning of some decor, which I LOVE to do! Getting ready for the holidays is so much fun! Here's to decorating! I'll share some pictures as I go... ;)


  1. I have been doing the very same thing. I am so Thankful for God's many blessings - when you stop to think of them - there are so many!
    I hope you have a blessed day!

  2. Dear Alyssa,
    Wishing you and your family a wonderful happy Thanksgiving! I must say New England is the best place to celebrate this holiday..and boy those cookies look so good! YUM!

  3. Your life does sound complete! Wishing you a smooth and joyful Holiday Season.

    HUGS Lorraine
