Merry Christmas Eve or happy holidays to everyone celebrating a special day!
Tomorrow is the big day, so collecting the best blog posts from this season and putting them on blast would be best.
As I said, I’m here for you if you need a recipe, craft, or some home decor inspo.
I got you. We’re in this together.

Personal Note from Janine
Well, Christmas is one day away.
Are you ready for the festivities?
Our gifts are all wrapped, and the house is decorated and ready for the big day.
I hope you and your family are all safe and healthy. It’s been a bit crazy this past week.
Let’s talk about this wintery weather! Our son’s flight home was canceled, so this will be the first Christmas without him. Of course, we are a bit bummed, but we will see him in February.
But all is good. We will carry on and look forward to February. The weather and the bomb cyclones won’t be so dramatic in the spring.
I hope you all are safe, warm, and healthy. These wishes have taken on a new angle with all the world’s crises.
Well, my love to you all, and Happy Holidays to you and your family!

This Week’s Tip – Organizing Your Ornaments
I recently placed all my ornaments from each tree in their storage boxes. I’m not sure why I never thought to do this.
So, when I open the boxes next year, I will have everything ready to put on the tree. The ornaments, and garland are all placed together in one labeled box.
This little tip saves me so much time and energy!
