A little helper and an evil trouble maker teamed up to decorate the Christmas tree. The little one just couldn't contain her excitement and bugged her daddy to bring down a Christmas tree from the attic the day after Thanksgiving. It's up, baby!!
Hope those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving recovered from the feast and the mega shopping spree during Black Friday and Cyber Monday by now. My wallet suffered alright over this weekend...ouch! Too much damages!!
Year after year, I find that Thanksgiving always sneaks up on everyone. Time seems to fly by too fast right after Halloween and the next thing we know it is December. Just three weeks from now it will be Christmas again and I am no where close to be ready. Our Thanksgiving day was a truly beautiful day filled with warmth and sunshine, strangely too warm for November but no complaints from anyone. Surely a nice break from cold weather we have had here. I started the day cooking three different dishes to bring over (Cranberry bars, Pecan pie and Quinoa with kale, roasted sweet potatoes & cranberries). Now looking at these photos, I totally can't wait for the next year!
Last time I got my hair cut short was at least 4 years ago after a birth of a little one. I have always adored long hair for as long as I could remember. One reason being that when growing up, it was a requirement for every girl who attended public schools (not every public school but certain ones) to wear short hair back home in Thailand up until high school level. Not sure if it's still the same these days. So you could imagine my excitement to start growing long hair. Changing hairstyle is a huge deal as I am not very adventurous in the hair department especially chopping so much length off at once. However, it's nice to change things up from time to time and I will appreciate it more at how much shampoo/conditioner and time I can save when washing and drying my hair, right?
A red tricycle passes from one generation to another. It used to belong to my husband when he was a little boy. It is still in a pristine condition (thanks to mother in law who has taken great care of and loved it). I am sure it means more than just a tricycle to her, it reminisce sweet memories.)
That face never fails to brighten the world. A laugh that can change a bad day into a good one.
A colorful bowl of fruit salad gives a full dose of vitamins to help make a strong and healthy body.
All we really need is someone to love and to be loved after all. If you have already had them in your life, cherish and never take them for granted. Don't waste time and energy on toxic/negative people who do nothing but lie and hurt others. Life is too short not to love those who truly care.
