I haven't posted on my blog for so long, I was actually thinking about closing it....but since it's such a wonderful way to meet people and form friendships, I decided to give it a go again. After all the hoop-la with the weddings and showers and such..I found myself in a bit of a funk..don't get me wrong...I was more than happy that they were over...but it was like I lost my sense of're so darn busy with things and then all of a's done. My husband finally decided to retire at the end of this year. His last day will be December 21st. After 45 years with this company, he decided it was time. We have been so blessed that he has been with a company that has been so good to him and provided a steady income over all these years. I know he is excited, but I know a part of him will miss it. I am going to retire, hopefully, within the next it will give him time to adjust. I'm sure the grandkids will keep him busy!!

I decided to change it up a bit for my Christmas decorating. I started last week...a little here and here are a few pictures to share. We go get out tree this weekend. Take care!


  1. Congrats to your husband...Enjoy!
    Glad you decided not to close your blog.
    Merry Christmas

  2. I hope you and your husband will find time to do the things you have put off. Wonderful decorations, I need to get mine out.

    Congrats to hubby on his retirement. Lucky him to have worked at the same company for so many years. That doesn't happen too much anymore, me thinks.
    Your decorating is off to a great start.
