Christmas Tour of Homes
I had decided not to participate in BooMama's Bloggy Christmas Tour of Homes this year, because I have seriously pared down my Christmas decorating over the years. Seriously. Why, oh why, didn't I have a blog the Year of Seven Christmas Trees? Or the years I had exactly 33 candles on my mantle (one for each year of Christ's earthly life)? When there was greenery, candles, and sparkle from the front door to the back door? When I see others' beautifully decorated homes, it reminds me of what I have not done this year. But that's not what Christmas is about, and certainly not what the Christmas Tour of Homes is about, now, is it?
So this morning I got up, looked around, and decided I am perfectly content with what we've done this year and that this would be a perfect opportunity to put Romans 12:13 into action and "practice hospitality" right here in my little corner of the web. So... Welcome! I've got hot chocolate and Starbuck's Christmas Blend, so help yourself and enjoy some of my favorite Christmas decorations.
We wish you a Merry Christmas!
