I have been married for 39 years, wonderfully to my best friend. We have two beautiful daughters and two cats, Sam cat who is 17 and Bessie who chose us over her owners and became ours in Jan 2017. Moved to Montana in 1974 from New Jersey and have never looked back. I work for an Alternative High School and it is the best job I have ever had (except for being a Mom) I call this my retirement job - it's part-time, I can do it till I retire which will be after next year, and it is so much fun!
Oooo, what a chair, if I could have one chair, this would be it!

Well, you probably know what I have been up to since my last post. I have been decorating! It involves many boxes full of treasures, lots of Christmas music and energy via Christmas cookies and Mulled Cider. A lot of folks look on it as work, but I consider it part of my "holiday experience" as I unwrap and visit with each item. My oldest items are two plastic poinsettia flowers, as a child they were always in a pewter vase when I was growing up. Now they come out each year and are tucked into one of my plants. From the early days of my marriage we purchased two very fancy garlands, on clearance of course, and they are one of the first things up and the last to come down each year. My vintage Christmas beverage glasses that I found at an estate sale for a song are a dream! We will use them tonight when we decorate the tree. Lots of odds and ends, but they all tell a story. :) And they add up to a happy holiday for me and my family. It is my pleasure to bring them out each year for a month, to let them shine and shimmer. And it is worth the time spent and the aching back for sure. Always, Kit
