A Time to Reflect

Hello friends! 

It's not even December, but I'm always so excited right after 

Thanksgiving to 

decorate for Christmas!
  
Have you started your holiday decorating and shopping yet? 




Last year was Lucy's first Christmas, and most of the time we'd

 find her, at the top of our 9ft

Christmas tree! 




This year, she's still fascinated with the tree.

Although, she's simply taken to just biting at the branches and playing

underneath the tree skirt.  Silly kitty.




For me, I just love the Christmas music, baking, 

and seeing the beautiful reflections from 

all of the lights.




Speaking of reflections...

I celebrated my Birthday yesterday!

I had Dim Sum in Seattle with a couple of friends then shopping

at Pike's Market in the rain.  

At the end of the day, I was quietly reflecting on my life a year ago,

 and how I was anxious and nervous 

about our upcoming move...

I never imagined I'd be celebrating my Birthday in Seattle with 

two new friends.

It feels good to make new memories, don't you think?

What a beautiful post, Becca! Yes, I like those things about Christmas, too! I think it's wonderful to have a festival of light (in a sense) right in the darkest time of the year. It wouldn't make sense in summer but makes these long dark nights BEAUTIFUL! I can't wait to chop through some Christmas fun around here, too, but slowly it comes for me... little by little....

and, Becca! Happy Birthday!!! =]

Happy belated birthday! Sounds like you celebrated it perfectly. Hope little Miss Lucy doesn't take to climbing the tree now that she is much bigger. :) Happy holidays! Tammy

Oh my goodness, the first photograph is just beautiful, Becca! What a sweet little girl.

We are just about all decorated, but still have a bit of shopping left to do.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
