A Lovely Christmas Treat

Happy holidays, everyone! Whether you’re celebrating Hanukkah this week, Christmas this weekend, or are enjoying the season in any other way that’s special to you, I hope you're having a wonderful time with family and friends.

Between get-togethers, last-minute shopping runs and getting ready to leave for California very soon, I sadly haven’t had much time to post throughout the past couple weeks, but I’m hopeful that once the new year kicks off, I’ll be back on a more regular schedule.

In the meantime, I just couldn’t wait to share the super sweet surprise I received last week from longtime blog friend Diana of The World Around Her, who sent Stephen and I a truly lovely ornament and also included a too cute handmade card that definitely brought a smile to our faces.



Thank you so much for your thoughtful kindness, Diana, and to all my friends here in the blogosphere, a merry and happy holiday to you and yours! I'll be back soon with recaps from our trip and other fun musings to help welcome 2012 in style! 

What special surprises have you received so far this holiday season?

  1. Beautiful card, and cute ornament! My sister-in-law and brother-in-law sent us a lovely platter for Christmas from the East Coast. It was so fun to pick up their package from the post office and tear into it. Since most of our family is local, its rare for us to receive gifts in the mail - this was a special treat. Happy holidays, and safe travels to you :)

  9. What a beautiful card and ornament. It's hard to blog during the holidays, luckily this year I had way less holiday events but I can certainly understand how it may not be the case for others.
