Christmas Lights

104_0478It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Our tree is up, the lights are lit and one of the highlights of the season is walking through the neighborhood at night to see those houses that have not only been decorated, but have gone above and beyond to make an extreme holiday statement with lights.

Lists are being finalized, gifts trimmed and wrapped, all while enjoying music being piped throughout Heath, which adds an understated elegance to the festivities.

Prep stylishly,

Holiday Whirlwind

As the most glamorous of holiday seasons is upon us the very thought of going out into thick crowds to battle over parking or shop within a glitzy store is not where I would enjoy spending my time. For me it is all about being home, surrounded by family and friends, and tasting the most delicious foods, which takes comfort to an entirely new level. During the past week I have been taking pictures from around my hometown to get into the spirit of the season … enjoy!!!
