We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner celebration with dear friends of ours. We hope all of you had a great day of reflection and gratitude as well.
Now that this holiday milestone has past, there is no denying that Christmas is right around the corner. It’s time to deck the halls! With the help of digital scrapbooking software, I created a new header and background yesterday to dress up my little blog. Today, we are going to start toting boxes down from the attic storage room and decorating Grey Havens. We have decided to only put up the little trees this year and not wrestle with carrying the large trees up and down the stairway. I haven’t put out my Santa collection for a couple of years now, but it may see the light of day this year if I feel ambitious enough.

I fondly remember our trip to Colonial Williamsburg last year and witnessing all of their inspirational wreaths and decorations. We can’t make the trip this year, but we would dearly love to go again. Natural adornments, such as the one shown above, help remind us that Christmas decorating doesn’t need to be cluttered, gaudy, inflatable, or expensive.
