Snow day!

We finally got some snow here in NY! My children, my husband, and myself love snow! We’re snow people. I think one of the things that really brings my husband and myself together is snow. I love how quiet it gets when it snows. You can almost hear a pin drop outside! I love the way the snow looks on the trees, I love how it looks it on the ground. It’s just so beautiful, and Christmas just isn’t the same without snow.

My children love playing in the snow. They love making snowmen, snow angels, snow forts, having snow ball fights. And I love the joy snow brings my children.

Has it snowed where you live yet? Let me know in the comments! I would love to know the weather where you’re at!

And if you haven’t yet, check out my giveaway post below! Thanks to everyone who has entered so far. I’ll be picking a winner soon!

Blessings to all. ❤️


Christmas Traditions – Giveaway

There’s nothing I don’t love about Christmas! I look forward to it all year. The food, the tree, the songs, the movies, the cartoons, the lights – I love the lights! There are so many great traditions enjoyed this time of year.

My favorite tradition is one that was started when I was a child. My mother has always loved Hallmark. She collects the ornaments and enjoys seeing all the new ornaments released each year. So, ever since I was little, my father has bought my mother a new ornament. Her Christmas tree is filled with Hallmark every year! She makes it so beautiful. As I grew up, I decided to carry on the tradition. Now each year, I buy my mother a new Hallmark ornament.

And today I’m giving a Hallmark ornament and a beautiful wall sign away to one of my readers!
