Oh my, am I ever enjoying this holiday season. I spend a lot of time sitting in my spot gazing at my pretty tree, hoping for snow and just like that, here it comes fluttering down. I had a lot of fun creating my vignettes this year and visiting with my old treasures. Now I can do a little baking and I've been watching some movies. New to me, The Bishops Wife and The Shop Around the Corner. Both were wonderful! We went to the Red Truck Vintage Market and I found a few more ornaments (like I really need any more...lol) and a little Santa. It was fun to be out and about and of course we wore our masks. Sadly a lot of people were not.
Thanksgiving was lovely. I had my kids here and Steve, so I was quite content. All the food came out just great and we had our special drinks and fun games. As usual we did not want the night to end but Em and I had to get up early the next day. That's right, we had a date for Black Friday. We decided to meet at 6am and only visit 4 stores. It's not the buying that's important, it's the driving around in the dark, listening to Christmas songs and chatting. We had so much fun and I was able to spoil my kids.
So now it is only a couple of weeks to Christmas. The cards have been mailed, the house is all decorated but of course I keep tweaking...lol I just love how everything looks so different in Christmas colors. Maybe we should hang lit garland all year long. I have come to a decision lately and I feel good about it. I am going to stop doing my blog. I won't delete it, but after this month, I will not add anything new. I find I get a lot of enjoyment out of Instagram and I have met so many great people all over the world. I love going in each day and sharing a pic of what I am up to. And checking in on what everyone is doing. There are so many great ideas and photos to enjoy. I started out in a forum over 20 years ago, graduated to a blog and now IG suits me better. You can check on me, if you want, on IG at amontanalife. It has been lovely getting to know you. Have a very Merry Christmas! Always, Kit
