The Bigger the Better! (Christmas Countdown)








It’s not this time of the year without… Twinkle Lights! (WPC)


There, I’ve said it, I love twinkle lights! Be it in a Christmas tree, strung along garland, bunched up in vases with baubles, or wrapped around a wreath. It’s Not This Time of Year Without them… this week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge.

And this year I have a beautiful new mantle not only to hold all-things-Christmas but to also hang my garland, intertwined with twinkle lights and baubles. Ahhhh… ’tis the season indeed!


Sometimes a spot-light is needed to show you the way; sometimes all you need is the soft twinkle lights to allow a moment of reflection and gratitude for all that has been and will be.


Walking into Macy’s, NYC (iPhriday)

Walking into Macy’s last year the first thing we noticed were the most glorious Christmas decorations hanging from the ceiling. With the combination of a hotel across the street and very early openings, I was even able to get a “person” free photo!

This week I’m joining Lisa at GrayDaysandCoffee for her iPhriday for the first time. What a wonderful opportunity to use some of the many photos on my phone, along with the many apps available!

My children are in total disbelief of how many photos I keep on my phone, even after downloading, but the truth is I like the memories photos provoke.
