Welcome!

At the first hint of chill in the air, my thoughts turn to Christmas. My mind and heart begin to fill with visions of sugar plums indeed. My weekly menu turns decidedly toward comfort food and I begin rummaging in my brain for homemade Christmas gift ideas for my loved ones. I begin hauling out first the autumn decorations and later the Christmas, decking my halls and every other available surface. I take delight in the season, the magic, wonder and glory of it all. This blog was born from that delight. Here you will find dinner ideas, crafts, decor, stories, memories, and music. Some ideas will be entirely mine, but I will also include anything cute I come across that I think you might like to see, credit given to the creator or source. Please leave me your ideas in the comments and any other feedback you'd like to give.

Love This Story!


Despite some technical difficulties yesterday and today, I'm back with a great recommendation. Have you read this one with your kids? This is a beautiful story by Pearl S. Buck, author of The Good Earth. If you've never read it, check it out from your local library, then buy it here, because you're going to want to have it in your home. This is possibly my favorite Christmas story ever, I cry every time! (I'm such a sap!)
