A Bah Humbug and Christmas Sweaters

I have always loved the holidays, but for some reason I have been a total bah humbug this year. I am not sure if it is because of the lack of cold weather and snow, or if I am a total grinch face… could be both… but it hasn’t felt like the holiday season at all.

So tonight I threw some Michael Buble holiday music on the iPod dock, whipped out an apron, and made a homemade meal complete with a large batch of salsa. Salsa always reminds me of Christmas time because I use to sell jars of it in early December to earn some money for gifts. You all need to get Keighley to tell you about her Luminaire business. We were total entrepreneurs in our household come Christmas time!

In addition to making a homemade meal, I put up my “Believe” blocks– compliments of Debs– and a few ornaments strung on ribbon. And guess what? Things are lookin’ a little more cheery and bright in my holiday world.

I look forward to the day when we own a larger living space so I can host a Christmas sweater party, but first I must scratch this bah humbug itch! Surely, when the time comes, you will all be invited!

    camberley - Hi Renee-

    We actually bought these BELIEVE blocks from K&K Imports years ago. I would recommend looking for some on ETSY. There are a lot of cute BELIEVE blocks on there.

    Good luck!
