One of my favorite things about this season!  I love the inside lights, the outside lights, light from a fireplace (or my fireplace dvd).  All of it.  Sitting by a tree that is all lit up and trimmed in ornaments that have special meaning to you...ahhh!  It is the best.

Holiday Treats

Growing up my mom and Nana would always make holiday candy: peanut butter roll, buckeyes, chocolate suckers, etc.  Yum!  They have always been a special treat.  Now I make some of the candy, as well.


This season has brought about some different art shows for my husband.  I have enjoyed it so much.  Looking at all the talent from around the city is so inspirational and FUN!  I hope 2015 leads to more art!


I have to admit that I am really enjoying the time to get some sleep, stay in my pjs, watch holiday movies, and visit with others.  Sometimes we just need time to just...be.  I am loving it!

Happy Holidays everyone! 


  1. Yep, these are definitely a few of my favorite things right now too! I love how the Christmas tree lights up the room...such a special time of the year! Merry Christmas to you and your family, Em!

    1. Thank you!! There is just nothing like the lights on a tree :)

  2. I'm loving time too--time to read, especially! Merry Christmas!

  3. Lights are definitely a wonderful part of this season. Enjoy the candy you made and art shows that are coming up. Merry Christmas sweet friend!!

  4. Your buckeyes are delicious! I love having time to just be lazy if I want. It's wonderful to just recharge my teaching battery. I love the fresh start of the new year! Happy Holidays, my friend! Maybe I'll do better keeping in touch in the new year! :D

  5. I love Buckeyes too!! Down in Florida they like to call them Peanut Butter Balls, but I make sure I tell them they are Buckeyes!! :) I too have a fireplace DVD. I love that too. Merry Christmas!


    1. Peanut Butter Balls...so hard to call them that!! They do make me so happy though :) I need to stop eating them!

  6. I agree with you on so many of the things you are loving! Christmas lights, time with the family, and just having time. Nothing like it :) Merry Christmas!!

    1. Merry Christmas to you too!! It went by so quickly! Hard to believe :)
