Can you hearing me try to catch my breath?

Decorating for Christmas is a lot like moving--it's a lot of work! Don't get me wrong, I love it--I love the lights, the tinsel, the smell of the musty attic as you open each box.

But I'm pooped. I can never decorate the same way as the year before--so its all about planning out where each thing goes--and it all goes up somewhere--I have things that have been passed down to me that have a lot of sentimental value, and things that are only a few years old that have a lot of meaning.

And let's not start on the search for the perfect tree. I made Mook, Oman and our friend from out of town traipse to 4 tree lots before we ended back at the 1st one we visited, to get the 'perfect' tree.

And I think I will have a partner in crime in the years to come..he seems to be just as picky about the tree.

Now I'm sitting on my couch, gazing at my beautiful tree, enjoying a glass of Old North State's Spring House. Hope you'll partake in a glass for our Virtual Wine Club.



  1. Enjoy the tree!! I cannot wait to get real ones again :)

  2. I totally dig O-man's shirt!!
    We put our tree up, but being in a new house I feel like I NEED to get some new stuff to decorate with. (not possible this year ,but whatever)I need to get decorating!

  3. Wonderful! I can't wait to get ours this coming weekend!

  4. All that build-up and not a closing photo of the finished tree?!

    Guess you knew we wouldn't care as long as there was one of that Handsome Boy!!!

  5. I don't even know where to begin! My whole house needs cleaned first!!! But I still love this time of year, too. Plus I can now listen to your CD without people thinking I'm crazy!!

  6. Oh your helper is so adorable! Enjoy your tree with a glass of wine!

  7. Love O Man's shirt! You know I am also picky about trees... I know I have not been blogging, but you may remember my post from last year about my tree obsession. SO I get it. :)

    Hope you are enjoying your tree, and all the memories that come with it!


There is nothing like a good pair of jeans; they shape us, support us and make us look our best. I'd love for you to share your jeans with me!
