HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Just wanted to take sometime this Christmas Eve day and wish you peace, love and joy for this holiday season and throughout the coming year! We celebrate everything at our house, Hanukkah, Christmas and then New Years which is also my birthday so it could get a little hectic. And as you can see from these pictures I'm an 'enthusiastic' holiday decorator.

We all went on a fun shopping trip together on Friday, picked what we wanted, bought things, went home, wrapped it all, put it under the tree and on Christmas morning we will open them and pretend to be surprised, like WOW!  And a new holiday tradition was born. Takes all the stress out of what to get who. (But just between us girls, I have a few surprises for them too, wink, wink.)

Saturday we had an early Christmas celebration with family up North. My sister-in-law is an amazing hostess and always makes everything so special. Christmas Eve will be a quiet night at home which I'm really looking forward to.

This past year was filled with many great times and some not so great times, but I loved them all just the same. That's life after all.

Looking forward to connecting with you in 2018! In the meantime remember those deep cleansing breaths and ~ inhale the good shit, exhale the bullshit.
