A Heartfelt wish...

I keep a little wicker basket on a shelf in our apartment. 
And everywhere we go, I pick up an ornament and add it to the basket. 

My ornament collections is one of my dearest treasures.
It is one of the things that I insisted on shipping along with us the the UK.

As I add the new ornaments to the tree from the past year,
I remember all of the places we've been and the things we've done. 

They are added to a lifetime worth of ornaments that I've collected over the years.  

They include little wood ornaments that we painted when I was a little girl.
And all the crafty ornaments that Jessica created as a little girl. 

I love to cover the tree with so many wonderful memories each year.
It's the perfect opportunity to stop and remember.

 It's been a lovely year full of challenges and adventure.

Of course, the family visits are definite highlights and
I'm looking forward to another wonderful year with more visits!

Merry Christmas and Happy Christmas!

I hope that no matter where you are or who you are with, 
you get a great, big, warm hug from someone you love.  



  1. Merry Christmas! We collect ornaments from our travels too :)

  2. I absolutely LOVE the idea of keeping the ornaments on display in your basket! I may steal it if you don't mind. We also collect ornaments and while I love taking them out each year, its so hard to put away. What a great way to keep your memories all year! I hope you had the Merriest of Christmases and can't wait to see what 2013 has in store for you! :)
