Snow Day

Happy Sunday friends.  It's been bitterly cold here in the Northeast.  The snow has stopped fallen and hopefully the temperatures will be kind to us for a while.  Not one to venture into the bitter cold and snow, it was the perfect day to finish my Christmas decorations, bake and play a little yesterday.  Boxes of decorations came up from the basement, tree is finally out of its storage bags and wreaths are hung on all doors and mirrors around the house.  As I decorate my tree, I can't help but think of all the little stories and memories that each ornament that I hang brings to mind.  Which special niece or nephew made this one, which special friend gifted one.  All heart-touching and tokens of happy times past.    
 
Christmas has finally arrived.  The tree is ready, the house is bright and ready to welcome those we love.    
 
It was also the perfect day to curl up on a big cozy chair to enjoy a bit of tea and admire the beautiful snow fallen outside.  Here is a little vignette I put together yesterday and a few photos of the Christmas decorations through out the house.   Have a wonderful week all.

My Beautiful Puerto Rico

Hello to you all.  I hope you are all enjoying the holidays with your beautiful families and friends.  It's been a while since my last post.  No, it has not been a lack of effort or inspiration on my part, I assure you, just that things have been a little busy with the holidays, trying to exercise a little and planning a trip to Puerto Rico to join family and friends to celebrate our niece Adrianne's wedding, leaving not enough time for blogging.
 
It's been almost two weeks since our return from our family holiday in San Juan.  What an amazing time we had.  The weather was perfect. Sunny and warm.  Just what the doctor ordered.  But apart from all the great sightseeing, wonderful meals, and romantic strolls on the beach, our nieces wedding was spectacular.  She was a beautiful bride.  Just like a Princess.  And the ceremony nothing short of magical.  It took place at the old casino in San Juan, circa 1917, which over looks Castillo de San Cristobal one of the largest fortifications built by the Spanish in the New World.  More importantly, was being able to join the couple on such a joyous and memorable moment of their lives.  And the time spent with all our family was priceless.  No doubt that some of our happiest and heart warming moments are spent with family.  My heart is full of joy.... 
 
But for now, I will share a few photos of my beautiful Puerto Rico.  I hope you love it just as much as I do.  I am already planning our next trip to San Juan.  Who knows, maybe I can inspire you to come along....
 
Have a lovely week.
