Early Christmas Presents
The gift I love the most in my gift package is my “Friends Forever Never Apart Maybe In Distance But Never At Heart” Personalized Long Distance State Holiday Ornament (Amazon Link). The link is personalized with our states — Missouri and New Jersey. On the back, the ornament has the words, “Friends Forever / Never Apart / Maybe in Distance / But Never at Heart.”
The ornament is very thoughtful — I love personalized ornaments! The saying on the ornament is true. Although Carrie and I live about 1,000 miles apart, we are great blogging friends. We had the opportunity to go to the Haven blogging conference together in July, which was great fun!
When we were at Haven, Carrie gave me a beautiful wood bead garland she made. I love the garland — it really fits in with my decor. For Christmas, she gave me a wood garland with a “K’ monogram. It’s very cute! I love monograms and have them throughout my house.
Santa Visit for Puppy
My family got a new Shih Tzu puppy, Mochi, in January. We are very excited to celebrate our first Christmas with him! Over the weekend, we took him for his very first visit with Santa. We had Mochi wear his angel wings for his ocaasion. He was a good boy and sat for his photo. (At least for a minute or two — enough time to snap a quick picture.)
Late last week I made gingerbread dough, and my daughters and I made and decorated gingerbread men cookies on Saturday. We were happy with how our cookies turned out! As it turns out, my kids did all the work when it came to cutting out the cookies and decorating them. (Check out my gingerbread men post to get the recipe!)
A few weeks ago I won a giveaway hosted by Lauren of Farmhouse Flare Co. and some other fabulous bloggers. My giveaway gifts arrived this week. Lauren has an online shop and crafts beautiful home decor items. As part of the giveaway, she sent me a sweet tea towel and 4 beautiful homemade coasters that she added a “K” monogram to for me. I love them! (Thanks, Lauren!)
