As the year comes to an end, I like to reflect on the blessings that 2016 brought as well as think about new goals, house projects and travels for the upcoming year. I wish blessings to you and your family in 2017! 

I always look forward to my new Karen Adams calendar. It really is so beautiful!

simple christmas touches in our home

My Christmas decorating is always fairly simple and traditional. Fresh greenery with either berries or pinecones mixed in are a nice way to add little touches of Christmas to your home. 

Welcome to our foyer!

I am not a huge poinsettia fan, but I would have to say that the pink poinsettias are my favorite. 

This year, I stopped by Dollar General and picked up these gold bells. I believe 8-10 came in a pack for $1.50. What a great way to dress up your plants for Christmas. 

One of my favorite traditions is Christmas cards. I just love sending and receiving them! I also enjoy displaying them all over my house. I even displayed my own card this year so I can enjoy it too! I know some people who keep them either in a bowl or basket so they can look thru them all year long. I may do that this year!

For our mantle this year, I decided to mix magnolia leaves and cypress branches. We just got Graham's silhouette made so I decided to place both the kids' silhouettes above their stockings. 

In case I am not back on here before Christmas, let me take a minute to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
