I was unsure if this year Christmas would come to my home. Being away from family and friends during this second lockdown in Southern California is hard on everyone. Knowing there would be many empty chairs around my dining table this Christmas made me a little teary eyed.I realize I’m not the only one who’s business has been shut down and I know that there is so many out there who have lost their homes and much more due to Covid.
But......
I had to remind myself not to concentrate on what has been momentarily lost but on what I do have and definitely should be grateful for!

With that feeling of gratefulness strong in my heart I decided I needed to decorate for my favorite holiday!

Keeping our regular routines and traditions is not only healthy but comforting.

Knowing that this is only a bump in the road and with hope and patience all will fall into place again, that our loved ones are only a phone call or text away, and most of all being grateful for what we do have~ is what life and holidays are all about!

What a pretty style! I never thought white on white in white would look good, but you keep showing that it's not only possible, but it can look amazing! (I also love your pheasant, though he is anything but white.)

As for Christmas, the nice thing about it is that just by doing it (meaning decorating your home, for you right now) you are feeling it. That's how it'll help you through the hard times, and remain a nice memory.

Aww thank you!
Yes, a spot of normalcy is comfort for the soul :)
