Humble Bungalow Holiday Greetings

Seems like it's been weeks of baking, shopping and wrapping.
I honestly enjoy wearing my apron and I love mucking about in the kitchen.
There is so much joy in the simple routines.
Washing dishes, preparing meals...ironing the linens.

Waking up early this morning sipping my tea and realizing that it's Christmas Eve.


While I prep the food and set the table in peace and quiet I like to reflect on all the blessings in our lives.
The roof over our heads, the food in the fridge, our family and friends.

I'd like to take this opportunity to say Thank you.
Thank you for all your comments, thank you for reading my words, thank you for all your emails.
Without you I would just be a voice in the dark.

Wishing you good health and happiness.
Merry Christmas.

  3. Happy Christmas Eve Hostess! Your blog is one of my favorite things to read. Your sense of grace and calmness are just what I need on so many days. Thank you for the reminder to be thankful.

    I have a question. Is this Christmas more relaxed for you this year due to your retirement. Or, does it seem the same as those holiday seasons in years past?
