Coming Soon

I had every intention of creating the 2012 family vacation video (like last year) but then the weeks (months, actually) flew by and the project was never completed. Somehow, I was just too distract...with Pinterest, and a broken toe and Felicity.

Around Thanksgiving, LC came up with a great idea...We should screen the vacation video at the family Christmas party! YES! Yes, we should, you smart cookie. And so my deadline was set.

I worked away learning the basics of iMovie while my eyes became a blurry mess from hours of staring at the computer screen. But, alas! The video is done and will be showcased on December 26 during a small private screening in Philadelphia, PA.

If you're dying to see my handiwork, you can check out the trailer HERE:

On the first day of Christmas...

Twelve more days until Christmas! I don't know about all of you but it's been a blur these past few weeks.  We don't know our holiday travel plans yet so that's wreaking havoc on my planning skills. It's been a whirlwind of shopping, parties, baking (lots of baking!), cleaning and decorating. 

At times it has been a little stressful but once Joe comes home from work and the fire is on, the lights are off, and the Christmas tree is lit up everything is ok again.  It's amazing what the glow of Christmas lights can softens everything just a bit so it looks beautiful.

My recent chalkboard art attempt. It will go on my mantle.

Hope these next few days are filled with love, joy, and all things merry. Take a moment to breathe deeply and appreciate everything you have.  It all goes by too fast.
Merry Christmas!
