Hey y’all!

Each year when the holidays roll around, my first thought is to run away. Away from the craziness, the crowds, the shopping, the SSSSTRESSSSSS! But somehow, I never do it. Mainly because I still have a teen at home … and then there’s my 26 year old daughter who loves Christmas … and all my other loved ones whom I’d miss if I did hop on the nearest plane, train or cruise ship.

Soooo, the next best thing (for me) is to scale down, slow down, stress down. And that’s what I’ve been doing, slowly but surely over the last few years. A smaller Christmas tree, pre-lit, ornaments that stay on the tree from year to year … a garbage bag over the tree then stashed in the garage until next Christmas.

I also have two miniature trees, aluminum and pink that are simply what they are. Easy, simple, sweet and pretty. No muss, no fuss. I filled a few glass jars/bowls with vintage ornaments and placed them around the house. While in Salado recently, I found a couple of VERY sweet marshmallow pink and yellow snowmen. Just plopped them atop angel statues … too cute!

Life is short. Life is fragile. Life is precious. I’m keeping it simple. And pink and turquoise, of course! 🙂

Hope you enjoy the pics … my simply pink Christmas decor.

Lotsa love, hugs and Christmas blessings,
Terry Lee

hey y’all!

hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving! we were very blessed: all three of ben’s sons were here, including mike and his wife burgandi and their little one, harrison. he’s the first grandbaby! tara and matt (my two youngest blessings) were here as well as ben and me. an almost full nest of baby birds (no matter how old they get, they’re still our babies)!

ben and i have fallen completely and madly in love with grandbaby harry. we seriously considered hiding him from his mommy and daddy so they might leave him behind. but in the end, we thought better of it. would’ve been a tad extreme, don’t you think?

on friday, burgandi and i went shopping in salado and left grandpa and daddy behind to babysit harry. had lunch at a quaint little tea room (very girly!) and found great deals on some very sweet things … but most of all, it was some serious “girl time” with my daughter in law.

the house is mighty quiet today … just matt and me. feeling kinda blue and missing baby harry. i’ve written it before, but i can’t help but wonder what a mama bird feels, if anything, when all her birds fly out of the nest. the older i get, the more sentimental (and sometimes downright depressed) i get during the holidays. especially when i don’t see all of my children … or if i get to see them and then they leave again (as they should!). sigh.

okay. enough wallowing! am including pics of the family, especially the grandbaby … and a few from salado. i found two VERY sweet little birds who are now at home in my collection (pics of that too). what IS it with me and birds, anyhow?! it’s a sickness i’m afraid. they are just toooo sweet.

enjoy. and hang in there. this time next month, it’ll all be over … for another year. whew!

love and hugs,
terry lee
