Every year, the first Sunday in December, I have a party for all my girlfriends. The days leading up to it are always hectic as I try to make sure my home is full of christmas.
It usually takes most of a week to get everything done. But after the party I can relax and enjoy the rest of the season.
Luckily I have most all of my shopping done since I have to stay on top of the writing.
At the moment the couch is covered with blankets and dogs who are snoring loudly while I upload the pics. We're having a peaceful night before Christmas.
I love how the house feels when its full of Christmas. Its like a giant package, waiting to be unwrapped, when the family descends. Merry Christmas.
