This week in pictures and life

I know I’ve been slacking off a bit lately with Thanksgiving and such, so I thought I’d post an update with pictures!

I decorated for Christmas, turned the office into my work space, and made a hat and scarf set for etsy! It’s actually for real people, and fits an adult, but I thought the bear was cute. O:)
This is the first time I’ve decorated my own home for christmas and it’s actually kinda fun. My mom and grandma shipped up my blue and white ornaments and angels and snowmen for me, so that’s been great. Next week I’ll see my family for the first time since the end of February, and I’ll get to meet my newest sibling, so that will be exciting. Tonight, my town is having a christmas parade and a whole holiday fest this weekend complete with free hot chocolate (!!!).
I like being in an area that has alot of special events going on – the arts community is very active and the merchants work together and host things like the “sparkle parade” tonight. It’s very special. In the midst of all of that, the thing that I enjoy most about this year’s holidays, is being with my husband for the first time on Christmas Day – and Thanksgiving. In all the time we’ve known each other, we’ve never been together on the biggest holidays till this year…and even with all the stress and business that comes with Christmas and college and all that they entail, I’m very blessed and thankful that we’re together(for the first time!!!) and always will be.

    I just read your blog and am happy that you are finding joy in having your own Christmas at home. My husband and I have had 27 Christmas times together and today I made cookies as usual. I like the little bear you made and I can tell you are a sensitive person who as you said is “thankful and blessed”. So are we. I am an educator retired and now a writer. If you’d like to see my writings, go to
    Comment to me if you’re interested in receiving an email when new writings come out. (of course include your email) I am just getting used to wordpress and look forward to meeting other writers who blog.
    Have a wonderful Christmas. Nancy Boyer of Boyer Writes.
