The family is here. Although it was quite the trip for my mother and father in law. Yesterday evening they called from Harrisburg, PA, about 95 miles away from here to let us know they were having car troubles and were waiting for a tow truck. The car was loaded on a platform truck and driven all the way to MD. This morning I was able to get the car to a local garage that promised they would look at the problem today and let us know what was the problem but they probably wouldn't be able to make repairs until Monday. This afternoon at 4pm they did call back... to let us know the car was all fixed and ready. Love the spirit of Christmas.
All the cookies and truffles have been boxed and delivered, the cake for the Buche de Noel is baked. A few presents need to be wrapped still but I'm ready. Ready to take the time and remember about the important things.
In the end, it's all about simple things: being all together (albeit a bit sick) is certainly the best present for Christmas.
I would like to take this occasion to thank all of you, readers, subscribers and for some now, friends for a wonderful 6 months. This craft blogging experience that helped me to find balance between family, work and life's curve balls. I love sharing my creations with you and love even more reading your comments.
Wishing you and your loved ones a warm loving and
