My Favorite Christmas Memory
Merry Christmas, Cottage Friends!
Can you believe there are only 8 more days until Christmas Day? Whoa! How did that happen?
I'm delighted to share that Cheryl at Homespun Devotions invited me to participate in her blog series "Your Favorite Christmas Memories."
If you're familiar with Homespun Devotions, then you know what a sweetheart Cheryl is. She truly is a woman who lives out her faith with grace and love.
If you'd like to read my story, here's the link: "A Rocky Mountain Christmas."
You'll also discover wonderful Christmas stories from other writers when you visit Homespun Devotions, including Cheryl's "Christmas from the Dumpster." It's a beautiful memory from her childhood.
Once again, I'm keeping Christmas decorating simple in our home. A little faux tree sits on our side table.
My homemade Christmas pillows nestle on the loveseat, and my first stab at quilting -- a little sampler from 2014 -- peeks out of the side table shelf.
And then there's our annual Christmas tradition a red poinsettia . It sits on the dining table on top of the Swedish weaving tablecloth I blogged about here.
The poinsettia really deserves to be in a pretty basket, but yours truly just hasn't had time to tend to that. We're super busy at Pier 1 right now and the last thing I want to do when I have a free day is go shopping. This homebody just wants to relax at home (between laundry and housecleaning).
I hope you're enjoying some downtime during this busy season. For Dennis and myself it comes down to keeping our focus on Jesus, whose birth we celebrate.
