    A realistic goal for the toughest time of the year, I like it! We went through he Empty Nest Syndrome a few years ago. After a few months we found it quite liberating to take time for ourselves!

    Did you 'do' the Black Friday shopping frenzy, Holly? I didn't. I did get a GIANT unadorned vintage wreath hung over double garage doors/under double windows of an unfinished bonus room. It's centered on the carriage lantern light fixture, and except for it's vintage white sprayed 'snow' coating it's branches, that's all the decorating I want to do. LOL!! No, really. It looks sooo pretty without a bunch of bulbs and lights and bows. I think I'll go 'natural' this year.
