Easy Christmas Touches at the Beach

A touch of Christmas red at the beach!
Along the lines of keeping it simple, just a little touch of red here and there is simply beautiful!
At my mom and dad's house...time for a short visit!

Simply Time at Christmas

I'm relishing in the simplicity of time together.
Time with my girl and the sweetness of her most dear friends.
     ~Simple cookie making to take to a home for the aged...
Time with my boy, watching him grow into a strong, kind, protective man...looking out for others!
Time with my man, enjoying a fabulously fun new season of more time together having fun!
     ~We attended all the Christmas parties we were invited to, almost every day this month, it seems first time in years I said yes to all since my kiddies are almost all grown up. Such fun with my best friend, my hubbie!
Time with my dear friends.
     ~Dinner, home tour, lunch and more dinners...
     ~simple wrapping
     ~simple recipes
     ~pure celebration
     ~Christ's birth
     ~the reason.

Inspiring Christmas Decor Keeping it simple

Merry Christmas!
Here are some more inspiring Christmas decor ideas. The first are my moms decorations and home and the latter half are her dear friend (and mine) Nancy's decorations from her last years Christmas Tea. Although I think I have made it to very few, I look forward to trying to attend every year. This is a tea where four generations of girls/ladies are invited and the little girls get dressed up in their fancy Christmas attire…it's almost as good as the beautiful food and decor :)
I can't wait for it this year…though my son will have to kill some time walking around Lido Isle looking at the boats while we girls chat and catch up!

What a precious time with our dear ones to be present.
That is the real gift! 
The gift of time.
Much love to all of you
precious readers. oxox

Christmas Decorations

Christmas Decorations…
My college girl will be home in an hour or so, I'm so excited!
Since I realized I hadn't posted for a while here are some great ideas for decorations..especially the Christmas balls at the base of the greenery and plants…I love that!
The last pics are from my parents house! Clearly my mom has a flair for design, too!
Enjoy & Blessings to you!!
