Dreaming in Technicolor!!

As I sat in front of the tree on Christmas Eve night, admiring our home, and thanking God for giving my husband and I the ability to be able to provide for our children and give them lifetime memories, I realized just how much I have to be grateful for.

I started to smile as I thought of how amazing it is to have a husband who also “dreams in technicolor”. It is a great feeling to be able to execute a plan for your home, and have someone else who is equally vested and shares your dream. Don’t get me wrong we DO NOT always agree when it comes to decor or furniture. But, this Christmas we put our heads together and we were both proud of the outcome. Everything was as perfect as things can be in a imperfect world!!

The food was great, we got good hostess gifts!! We played some games, and even the guests didn’t go home empty handed.

I love Christmas, it is my FAVORITE HOLIDAY, and always has been!! But, it ranks even higher, when I get to spend it with the ones I love!!

Wishing you the joy of the season.. Vision for the New Year and Motivation to Persevere towards all your goals and Dreams –

It’s beginning to “Teal”, a lot like Christmas!!

I have absolutely fallen in love with teal this year.  Check out some great inspiration pieces, I found on Pinterest..

In fact, I got my color scheme for one of my Christmas trees (still a work in progress), from these pics.

Here are the ornaments that I purchased for the tree, and my Table Centerpiece for Formal Dining Room.
