Sweetest blog friends, I wanted to be sure to peek in and wish you a Merry Christmas! I could not be more blessed than to have spent the day with two of my daughters. We connected with my son this morning over the iPad so that we could spend some time together and we also opened the gifts that we’d be sending to him. Gotta love technology! I’ll have to admit that cooking was at a minimum at my house this year and for the first time in my life we went out to dinner on Christmas eve and went out to breakfast on Christmas Day. It was jam packed, something I would not have guessed. I was telling the kids how different it was when I was younger – no stores were ‘ever’ open on Sunday and if you didn’t get something by nightfall you had to wait until the next morning and we never felt it was an inconvenience :-) Sweet daughter is on road driving back home now so all is quiet. I truly hope you too have been blessed to spend the holiday with loved ones. I couldn’t resist one more Christmas item (made late in the evening while I was wrapping gifts) before I pull my papers and stash them away – I made an old worn bookmark with a distressed seam binding tassel. I kept it all simple, but I do really love to make bookmarks and really do use them. This one is for a small book so my little flower doesn’t get in the way, but for a larger book, simply omit it.
