Although this year I am unable to spend Christmas with my whole family, I am so happy that my sister and nephew will be flying in on Christmas Day from Montreal to visit with me for one week :)
I am excited to decorate and prep my home to make their stay enjoyable and comfortable.
My Christmas tree is beautiful, it makes the biggest difference in my living room. I look forward each evening to turn on all the decorative lights! It's so Festive!
I am really excited about spending some time with them. We always have a lot of fun together.
I am hoping we will get to do a bunch of fun stuff, visit a few places and spend quality time.
The weather has been fabulous here, and hoping it won't cool down too much.
This will be the first time my family will see my home. I worked so hard to make it cozy and welcoming.
We will have our Christmas dinner on the 27th.
What I especially hope is that time won't fly by, but as always with my family, it usually does.
- Cecile's Country Garden
- I'm a Canadian now residing in Sunny Arizona since 2002. Although I've been a city girl all of my life, I've always loved the country and the laid back life it offers. My love of the Outdoors, Animals,and Gardening comes from my mom Cecile, who loved her home in the country, but sadly passed away in 2005. I promised her I would grow a garden in her name, And I finally did, five years later. One of my best memories of her is how much she loved her garden. The glow on her face when she would show me something new, always creating a life with things she loved. She loved all animals. She taught me simplicity, to enjoy the small things, and see beauty in everything. Today I find myself doing the same things she did in her garden and in life. This blog was created to keep track of my projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity. I want to share this adventure with those who can appreciate the small things, the trial and errors, the simplicity in it all, but mostly,what my mom knew how to do best,just have FUN! *This blog is dedicated to her*
