…a single word chosen for each ornament that I felt reflected the couple or family…

Love, Faith, Hope, Togetherness, Beginnings, Joy, Family, Beauty, Dreams, Happiness…

I hope your day is beautiful, and that you are enjoying every moment of this wonderful season of family and togetherness around the family tree…

Before we’re done, one quick thank-you…

…the kindness of blog friends continues to amaze me…a beautiful gift from Jody of Home and Heart.  A gorgeous necklace made from some of my favorite colors and a vintage earring… “just because”…Thank-you, my friend.

See you soon with something new.
