It's the dawn of another morning, the beginning of a new week-- the week before Christmas! It's crunch time, but in a joyous way!!! This past weekend, we hung the final lighting to illuminate our backyard and back-porch for our family Christmas party (the festivities and visiting take place both inside and out)! I am exhausted, but in a good way! Everyday until Christmas day, I will be continually placing the final touches around the home and preparing assorted desserts and dishes. Time is always limited due to work, but somehow everything gets done!
