Yesterday I baked bread for Christmas. Hey, I couldn't get out of the house and I was going a little stir-crazy. I made 3 loaves of zucchini bread and 2 loaves of banana nut bread. The house smelled glorious! I also did a little Christmas decorating as well. The table runner below was made by my girlfriend. I think it's absolutely beautiful!! She does such good work.
Anyway, ever since those first days we've been collecting memories - "not ornaments" memories!! Our tree is special only because whenever we look at it we see our lives resting in the most perfect spot on a most beautiful background of green!!! Nothing fancy - just us.
Twenty years ago when we lived in Kentucky a friend of mine made this pillow and I've held onto it for dear life. It sort of embodies my childlike vision of what Santa "really" looks like!!!
