The Kitchen at Christmas

I'm pretty sure these will be the last Christmas pictures I make you suffer through share with you this year.  ;)  I hardly ever show my kitchen decorated for Christmas, so here goes.

A Snow Day and Hungry Jack Casserole

I just love a good, old-fashioned snow.  I especially love it when it falls on or near the weekend and I've had time to stock up on food and something to read.  :)  There's just nothing more cozy than being inside where it's warm and watching the snowflakes falling outside the window.  I totally understand that in some areas, people get so much snow every winter that they're quickly sick of it; I would be too.  But we don't get a lot here in North Carolina; I don't think we even had a big snow at all last year.

Biltmore Candlelight Tour, Part 2

Happy New Year everyone!  I'm trying to crank out these Biltmore posts before people no longer have an interest in seeing Christmas pictures.  It's been very time consuming though, because Hal took 409 pictures that evening.  Even though I won't be sharing all of them, I'll be sharing quite a few, so you might want to get comfortable before you start reading.  ;)

Biltmore House, 2016 Christmas Candlelight Tour

Happy New Year's Eve everyone!  Can you believe yet another year is about to come to a close?  I'm going to keep the talk to a minimum here, because I can't wait to share these pictures with you.  This year, we were allowed to take pictures inside the Biltmore House during the candlelight tour, and we were trés excited about this.  ;)  Of course, people weren't allowed to use a flash (understandably) and the lighting was a bit of a challenge, but I think Hal captured some amazing shots.  I took a bunch of pictures on my iPhone, but I haven't even looked at all those yet.  You might want to get a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, because this is a picture-heavy post.

Christmas in the Living Room

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are taking things easy today.  We did and we are. 😉

In an earlier post, I promised I'd share some pictures of our Christmas living room and foyer.  I don't have the foyer pictures ready yet, but here is the living room all decked out for Christmas.

Merry Christmas

2016 Christmas Card Exchange


"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love!"~Hamilton Wright Mabie

Hello friends.  Can you believe we only have a week left until Christmas day?  Have you finished your preparations?  I haven't, but I'm working on it.

I'm joining Amy at Love Made My Home, for the Christmas card exchange that Amy was kind enough to organize for us this year.  This is the third year Amy has hosted this fun Christmas event for bloggers.  Once everyone had signed up for the exchange, Amy matched us up with someone to send and receive a card from.  This is the first time I've participated, and I thought it was great fun.

My partner in the Christmas card exchange was Vee, who blogs at A Haven For VeeI have been fortunate to get acquainted with Vee through our mutual blogs over the past four or five years.  She is a very dear person, and I was so excited to send a card to her.
