Calling all Christmas Trees ... (Yea! Holiday Spirit GIVEAWAY!!)



I love the holidays! The bright colorful decorations everywhere.. I chuckle when I see a wreath hug on those big truckers driving down the road, the glow of the holiday lights, people out and about seem to be in their happy mode... but the best for me is: ENJOYING our CHRISTMAS TREE with my family at night! After the day has all settled we relax and sit back and watch the kids play next to the tree.. with the lights changing colors, the smell of the tree, there's a peacefulness that happens. Can't explain it.. I just love it...SIMPLE PLEASURES!

SO... Calling all Christmas Trees!!! (or a photo of your favorite holiday decoration)
I would love to see your fun beautiful tree !! EMAIL ME A PHOTO OF YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE TO ENTER!! I will be collecting these photos and will post to my blog ... AND (around) Christmas I will do a drawing!! A SUPRISE CHRISTMAS GIFT... to the winner! (steffogal1@gmail.com)


May everyone have a fun, safe, healthy and happy holiday season!!

Take care and ...
With a 'big cheery Ho-Ho' Grin,
Stephanie :)

Brrrr...


I took this picture Tuesday morning of our local mountain range and wanted to share the excitement~~ WE HAVE SNOW!! :) I love it! yeah.. I know... it's nothing compared to what others have but living just 10 minutes from the ocean and being able to actually SEE SNOW is huge to me!! :) Simple pleasures in life....

I hope you all are staying BUNDLED UP WARM COZY HEALTHY AND ENJOYING YOUR SEASON!! :)

{oooh, and a side note: the snow melted all away.. the next day... gone. ugh}
