Balmy Christmas

If you've been reading long, you know how I love a white Christmas. Last year, though harsh was amazing and I loved it.

It seemed so promising when we had a beautiful white Thanksgiving this year.


This year we endured enjoyed a very balmy Christmas. The whole Advent really.

My parents surprised us with a professional photo shoot with our favorite photographer, Brittani Renee. 

It was a truly wonderful day. Warmth of weather. Warmth of heart.

everyone together. all of my siblings, their spouses, children. my parents
and grandma

Advice From a Singer Sewing Manual from 1949

"Prepare yourself mentally for sewing. Think about what you are going to do . . . Never approach sewing with a sigh or lackadaisically. Good results are difficult when indifference predominates.

Never try to sew with a sink full of dirty dishes or beds unmade. When there are urgent housekeeping chores, do these first so your mind is free to enjoy your sewing. When you sew, make yourself as attractive as possible. Put on a clean dress. Keep a little bag full of French chalk near your sewing machine to dust your fingers at intervals. Have your hair in order, powder and lipstick put on. If you are constantly fearful that a visitor will drop in or your husband will come home, and you will not look neatly put together, you will not enjoy your sewing."

This just makes me happy.
