The bride Nicole and her new father-in-law, my wonderful brother Bobby.
The happy bride and groom..Mr. & Mrs. Tyler Gilroy..Congratulations you two!!
A wonderful time was had by all, only the whole occasion reminded me of how much I needed to do when I got home. The church had a large Christmas tree on the alter...I don't have one yet. The reception hall had a few lovely Christmas trees...I don't have one yet. My brother Bobby has a beautiful tree in his home and.....yes, you guessed it, I don't have one yet. In fact I don't have a stitch of holiday decorations around my home yet. I take that back...I do have a little table top decorated tree on my bedside table....that has been there since last December. Hey..one less thing to do, right? I knew there was a good reason I left it there last year ;-)
I have seriously thought about this and came to the decision to take a break from my Etsy shop until after New Years, to give me some family time. I am going to spend this time shopping, baking, decorating and enjoying my family and friends. After all..isn't that what the season is all about? I was starting to loose sight of what was really important, but I am back on track now. First order of business is to buy a tree and sweet talk some guy with a pickup to deliver it to my house. Don't think it will fit in my Beemer's trunk ;-) Second thing on my list is to buy lots of flour, sugar and butter and go on a baking binge! While my cookies are baking, all my decorations will be put in place. I am hoping to get all this done at least by January 3rd ;-)
Until next time..be kind and stay creative.
