It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


I love Christmas and the winter season. It just makes me happy. I honestly think that it's the most wonderful time of the year.

Even though we don't really feel the winter here in Miami, at least it's a bit cooler and the humidity is not as bad. I do wish a cold front would come by again!

My DH returned from working in Chicago and I had a surprise for him. Before he left, he had mentioned how he wanted us to decorate the house for Christmas, but with everything that's been going on lately, we hadn't had the chance. Well, that was my surprise. While he was gone, I put up our little tree and all the trimmings, including red bows, our Nativity set, holiday scented candles, and lots of other details. Then I hung a "Merry Christmas" sign outside the door for him. It was great! He was very happy (tired, but happy) when he walked through the door on Friday night... Here are some of my shots:






So glad I was able to capture that moment on camera...

I also wanted to share that I went to a small craft fair at my work on Friday and I picked up these beautiful Christmas cards. The photographer works in my building at El Nuevo Herald (Spanish language newspaper). I loved these photos of Christmas, South Florida style!



And finally, Richard and I went to see Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium last night with Yayi, Jorge and D'Angelo. What a treat! We hadn't been to the movies in months and this was an entertaining, magical film (perfect for the holidays). D'Angelo liked it, too! LOL!



That's all for now! I'll share some of my recent projects with you later this week :-)

Peace and happy holidays!
