Words of Wisdom

As everyone is getting ready for the holidays and Black Friday looms in front of us, I would like to share one of my favorite quotes with you.
"Have nothing in your home that you don't know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."
While you mull this little nugget over, remember that Christmas is not about how much stuff you get or how much you spend but the people you celebrate with.

On a separate note...

It's official.  My childhood sweetheart is engaged.  I'm okay with it.  She seems like a nice girl and he and I never would have really worked out.  She got his mother's engagement ring, which I adore, and wears it well.  I wish them the best of luck and can't wait to see the wedding.  It will be fabulous!
