About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

It's Christmas Tree Time!

We buy a fresh Christmas tree every year.  There's something about a fresh tree that just makes me smile.   We've been going to Shawn's Christmas Trees for the last 6 years and he's never disappointed us.  There is a large selection of beautiful trees that look and smell fresh for the entire month of December.  And I forget to water my tree quite often.  Our tree is full of a variety of ornaments.  It doesn't have theme at all.  I keep telling myself that one of these years I'll decorate it with a beautiful matching ribbon and ornaments.  But every year as I pull out the ornaments, each one brings back such a special memory that I can't help but put it on the tree. Whether it's an ornament from when Mike and I were kids, something that our children made in school, or just a silly little ornament that makes us laugh, they all have a purpose for being on the tree.  And sometimes those sweet memories mean more than a beautifully decorated themed tree....at least in my world it does.

Any local friends buying a fresh tree this year need to buy from Shawn.
You will easily become a regular customer year after year.

We found the perfect one!

Not so perfect timing for Mike to snap this picture!  LOL
Why do kids always choose inconvenient times to fill a diaper?

It smells perfect!

I love our  tree with a hodge podge of ornaments full of memories.

One of my favorite ornaments to remind me of my beautiful Mother watching over me.
