hello california christmas

We had a fun relaxing Christmas day with family. Last year we were in England–the Christmases were so different, each amazing in its own way. Our California Christmas was surprisingly chilly this year–it only got up to about 56*–which for our part of California is cold!

I’ve got lots of pics to share. How about some hellos for a brand new week?

  3. Hello Life!!!

    I am so thankful I found you! The rings you made me are a beautiful reminder of my Mom who passed away at 48 from liver cancer in 1988. Thank you!


  4. Hello to you. Hey. Leave your twinkle lights up as long as you want. I leave my lights, tree, decorations, cards I’ve received and hung up at least for a week after New Years. I love the colors of everything and hate to take them down.
