Winter in Paradise

Winter in Florida is pretty much perfect.

Daytime temps in the 70's. Night time can range in the upper 50's and 60's.  

Yep, it's paradise.

Let it snow

Even though Christmas is past, I love sharing life in Florida. Enjoying the warm and sunny days, I opened the doors to the porch.




 The tool box arrangement was inspired by Rosemary and Thyme when she shared a Christmas Home Tour.

We don't have any snow, but I hope you enjoy your season, wherever you are.

Winter Wonderland

A few years ago our family traveled to West Virginia to Snowshoe Mountain for some skiing and snowboarding. It was a winter wonderland.

And of course there were a few falls along the way.

Ouch!

And on the last day we were there, a blizzard was moving in.

We had to make a quick getaway, or else we would have been stranded on the mountain. Although my kids would have loved that, it was necessary for hubby to be back at work. Besides, this Florida gal could only take so much of this cold stuff :-)

Christmas thoughts

Do you ever just sit by the tree and take in the beauty of the season?


After everyone has gone to bed, do you fill a plate with some sweet goodness, make a hot cup of tea and just enjoy the quietness of the evening?


Do you sometimes wonder what the Shepherds thought on that night, so many years ago, when the Angelic host proclaimed the birth of Jesus?

What an awe filled experience that must have been.

And for now, I will turn the lights down low, and pretend the twinkling of the Christmas tree are the stars of the Universe proclaiming the birth of our Savior, Christ the Lord.

                                 Merry Christmas!
