Holiday Season Has Begun and Giveaway Winner

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families!

  

Today is the official beginning of the Holiday Season, the most magical time of the year for my family.

My children are fascinated by the Christmas lights that neighbors put out and we are going to see more of them each day. This weekend we are going to put up and decorate our Christmas tree. And next week I plan to write and send out Christmas cards. However, my most favorite holiday activity is baking! I have several new recipes pinned. And I am so much looking forward to a family cookie exchange party that we are going to in a couple of weeks. Then there will be more gatherings and parties to attend. Such fun!  

And today is the day to announce the winner of the Mariposa tabletop fountain. It’s Susan from Writing Straight from the Heart. Congratulations!
