2012: Week 47
And it was all yellow
2012: Week 47
We bought a new tree, lights, & ornaments for our new home & decorated for the holidays after Thanksgiving & I just love it; there’s always something magical about the warm glow of Christmas lights – the fact that our tree is right beside our fireplace certainly doesn’t hurt either! I am really pleased with the way it all came together & I love our vintage-style glass tree topper. As we were putting up the tree, it started to snow outside; it was like the weather knew & we’d ordered up the first snow of the season just for the occasion. Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la…
We celebrated our first Thanksgiving in our new home & there was much to be thankful for! We shared dinner with dear friends & enjoyed using my Mom’s china for the first time – it was great to finally be able to use it & enjoy it. Averie looked lovely in her pretty green party dress too. Dinner was delicious & included turkey tenderloins with 3 different spice rubs, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, homemade gravy, carrots, green beans, rolls, pumpkin pie with homemade bourbon maple whipped cream, & mini vegan gluten-free donuts.
2012: Week 46
We had a weekend getaway in Lake Ann, MI last weekend & the scenery was breathtaking! Much of the fall color is on its way out there, but the woods were beautifully golden. The misty morning on Saturday, crunch of leaves under our feet, bright green moss and evergreen needles, & glimpses of beautiful blue lake water couldn’t have been more perfect.
