HELLOOOOO! I am so happy to finally make it to The Ultimate Coffee Date hosted by three fabulous women: Deborah , Coco and Lynda. I am sorry I am late. Please grab a piping hot cup and join me! Then head over to my gracious host’s blogs and see what they are up to this month.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I am excited that it is the holiday season! I love the parties, Christmas music and all the festive decor. My daughter and I decorated the house on Monday. Now all we need is to buy our tree!
If we were having coffee, I would share with you my all time FAVORITE Christmas book. It’s called Christmas Joy by Susan Branch
I received this book as a gift from my mother-in-law back n 1995. I read it every year to get into the holiday spirit. It is filled with recipes, tips for decking the halls, timeless gift ideas and how to spread holiday cheer. If you need a gift for someone that has everything, I recommend this. I linked it to Amazon so you can take a peek inside.
If we were having coffee, I would ask you about your family traditions. I like to hear the different ways other people celebrate! We are all over the place. I spend Christmas Eve with Dan’s side of the family with dinner hosted by our sister then. Before dinner, we meet at church for a candlelight service. Then Christmas day we go for a hike ( just the three of us and the dogs ) before going to my mother-in-law’s house for dinner with our step father’s whole family. Last year things got CRAZY. Let’s just say we celebrated Jesus’ birthday the Irish way ;0) HAHA – good times. We get together with my brothers and sister’s clans whenever my one sister hosts her party. This year it’s the weekend before Christmas.
If we were having coffee, I will wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Then I will give you a BIG hug and hope you see you again in the new year.
If we were having coffee, what would you share with me?
