Kvell to All

Good morning everyone, I hope you're all enjoying December to the fullest, and enjoying as many snuggery spaces you can. Snuggery, that delightful old term brought to life again last Sunday while we were on the Alexander Ramsey Victorian Christmas tour. It was the buzz word of the day, in our tour group anyway.

This time of year, I think it's all about feeding your flame, and keeping it going.

Welcome and enjoy a bit of history at the Alexander Ramsey house.

My friend Debbie caught me snapping away!
She never rushes me either, but I have to laugh about her  
never taking any pictures!

Noticing what's alive.

From the Ramsey's front yard you can spy downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Speaking your truth.

From my house to yours,
wishing you all peace and happy hearts.

Can anyone spot Misty in this photo?
Here's a hint, she loves chairs.

Gifts we give ourselves.

Taking time to nurture yourself.

Keeping the magic of your childhood alive

Below is a photo taken at the Dakota Heritage Village 
last Sunday evening. It was a full family gathering touring the winter walk.

Notice every single snuggery that comes your way.

Join your local historical societies and why not give memberships as gifts.
It's a gift that keeps on giving.

In the heart of the world that is where we find peace.

The smiles on our faces are like ornaments on a tree
the more you have the brighter life becomes.

You can always find something to enjoy
 in your outdoor garden.

As a matter of fact all our munchkins sat with Santa, 
or rather Father Christmas as he called himself!

Sharing love with others!

Keep snapping those precious moments and relive them over and over.

Joyful hearts unite.

Now I made this pretty easy, but can find the pickle in our tree?
It won't be so easy for the kiddos!

Yes Virginia there are wonderful Hallmark movies this month and if you listen to joyful and merry Christmas music all December long, you'll soon be singing them as well!

Craft things with your heart and soul as your choice tools.

May you all have happy endings to your days 
and joyful mornings to begin your new day again.
(and of course good coffee!)

Thanks for stopping in and
Take good care of you.
