last night my family had dinner with a certain boy's family
mismatched vintage dishes, roasted pecans, peppermint ice cream, & lots of laughs.
weaknesses of mine.
it was all sorts of wonderful.
after which the brother & I went Christmas lights judging.
We've been blessed to live in a darling area
where the houses line streets named things like Apple Hill, Snow Forest Cove,
or mine, Cherry Woods Lane.
Congrats to the five finalists.

so run with it
& thanks for spreading Christmas cheer.
all my love.
