    • Thanks so much, Michelle. We enjoyed a quiet Christmas day at home watching a Noreaster transform our little speck of ground into a magical kingdom. Sun out next day (today) and we enjoyed a Very Merry Christmas with our youngest daughter and our two young adult grands living in the area. It was a beautiful and blessed celebration. ❤ Sending lots of love your way along with wishes for A Very Happy New Year to you and yours! xo
