BED, BREAKFAST AND BIRDIES

GLEDELIG JUL...OR MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Christmas is my absolute FAVORITE time of the year. It's the anticipation leading up to it really, with the decorations (I decorate A LOT), and the lights, and the baked goods, and the parties, and the giving, ooooooooh and the Christmas carols.
