Let it Shine!


Tim put up the lights a couple of weeks ago....he is much more on top of things than I am.....at least it seems that way! He seems so relaxed about this time of year, while i get lost in all of the details. Even his light installation. It makes me crazy thinking of him falling off the roof every year! But it has all ended well and the lights are beautiful!


The front door was decked as well.  Many thanks to Denise for the perfect burlap black gingham ribbon!

Happy Holidays!

Katie,
Your husband deserves a really good present under the tree for the lights, just amazing!!! And, I love your front door! I did swags and pinecones too this year, but the gingham ribbon, so festive!
