Pass the whine…

You know what is a real let down? Finally getting a date night with hubby, then eating a bad meal. Seriously. We eat out so little that when we finally do get a date night the meal should effing fantastic, but it wasn’t, and that sucks. I know. Boo-hoo.

Okay, enough whining…

This weekend we mustered the energy to check off one of our Christmas traditions…Holiday Lights! Last year we went to Golden, Colorado to check out their river walk lights. The girls were so impressed with the huge pine tree completely wrapped in lights that we had to share it with friends this year.

Each branch is wrapped in strands of lights. I wonder if they leave the lights on all year…hum.

Another tradition…stop at Starbucks to warm up

Our house with lights

Our home: It may be old and worn. It may have stained carpets and pet hair. It may need a fresh coat of paint on the inside, not to mention new windows. There is not a pretty decorated Pinterest worthy fireplace mantle. Very few people I know would have house-envy upon walking into our house, but it is OUR HOME. It is full of love and happiness. And, that is all I can really ask for.

December Daily | Merry Christmas

My old friend, Ray, let me in on a little secret: Downtown Golden is the place to be for Christmas lights.

He told me of a very large tree where each delicate branch is wrapped in lights like a canopy of brightly colored stars.

This Christmas season, may you take time to look at the lights…
