Our first snowfall of the SEASON

What a beautiful day in Kentucky.

The first snowfall has our trees coated with a gorgeous glistening snow.

The horses are running through fields of white winter wishes.

Our school kids are celebrating a snow day. Hot chocolate, warm mittens, movies and cozy quilts…

These are the days memories are made of.

Holiday GIDDY


It’s beginning to feel like the holiday season is upon us.

My neighbors used last week’s sunshiny days wisely, to put up their twinkle lights.

Shopkeepers are busy with their holiday displays and merchandise.

Main streets will soon be decorated with wreaths and lights along their lamppost rows.

Magazines have festive homes and goodies and sparkly party outfits on their covers.

Gift and wish lists are being exchanged, commercials are featuring the newest toys, blogs are featuring holiday DIY projects for gifts and home decor.

Churches are advertising their Christmas services and plays and cantatas.

Radio stations are beginning to add in holiday tunes, and will soon play them around the clock.

I love it all. I will never grow out of it. It will never lose it’s magic. Holiday excitement will always live in my heart, ready to be sparked back into giddy as the holiday season begins.


I love this darling hot chocolate recipe chart from SheKNOWS. It’s so cute!

Winter is whipping in with some early snow, and Jack Frost is dancing a frosty jig this weekend.

It’s the perfect time to stock up on hot chocolate supplies.

Peppermint puffs, flavored marshmallows, cinnamon dust and cocoa powder… mmmmm!

If you are in the path of the winter blast that’s heading our way… Snuggle Up, Buttercup!
