THE SEASON OF MAGIC BEGINS
This shot was taken out on my 'sisters' patio which is where we always have our Thanksgiving dinner. It is such an inviting place to me, always so cozy with the wood stove, and all of the windows which open right in to the outdoors, which makes you almost feel as if you are outside. She had all of her Christmas decorations up, and I love in this shot how the lights reflect out in to the approaching nightime. To me, this somehow captures the mystical nature of Christmas, and this holiday season. Perhaps it takes me back to when I was a little girl and loving decorating our home with the lights. There is just something so cozy and homey these lights are. There is something also which is magical about the Christmas holidays... Something that is not present any other time of the year. So now the Christmas season begins in earnest! I am so thankful that I am totally done with my Christmas shopping, and can just sit back and look for special things to do for this season. I do a special Christmas journal every year, and try to focus on finding special things that I can do for people that I love , or people that are really in need. Hope that all of you had a wonderful weekend, and are looking forward to the Christmas season! Hugs to all of you from Texas!
