My incredible, lovely, "I forgot" day.

read

  Today started off as any other day does. You get up and think you have big plans. Yes, absolutely, but let’s just start off with a coffee before we get going, yes? But not for too long now, I have so much to do! I’m gonna go for that brisk daily walk that will […]

JUNK vs. Stockings… guess which won

read

I have a confession. We don’t use STOCKINGS for Christmas. (gasp!!) In fact, I’ve never used a stocking for its intended purpose before. Like, ever.

A treeless ladder Christmas tree – Day 10
