I think we have all been there. Receiving a gift that we could really live without. Something that was given to use that we chuck to the back of the closet. Now we can't really get away with giving our close friends something that we know that we ourselves don't even like! Let's say for instance you need to buy bridesmaids gifts or gifts for the groomsmen. These are people that we have known for years. We don't want to disappoint them or embarrass ourselves by giving them gifts that are no more than adequate. Why not give them something that they can use? Something you yourself would really love to get? How about a cool flask, tote bag, or nice piece of jewelry? The simple thing to ask yourself is would I like this? This is the sure way to know the right answer!

I am just thankful that we have a wood stove that keeps us more than warm without the huge energy bill. I am thankful for having a wonderful hardworking and thoughtful husband, two great girls, an awesome mother-in-law, and four cool fur babies.
I hope that each and everyone of you really enjoys your holiday this year. I am reflecting on so many things I am thankful for and I wish you all the best this season and New Year.
Hugs to you all!

I still enjoy escaping to the small secret places that only the "locals" know about. Getting away from the television, cell phones and computers is a must for me. Don't we all need to escape reality once in awhile? The day this picture was taken there was not a cloud in the sky, just a slight breeze and warm enough to wear shorts. This was just about the most perfect day you could ask for down on the Washington coast. There aren't many of these days so i cherished every minute of it.
