There really is no place like home when it comes to the Holidays.
I enjoyed this break at home tremendously. 
I don't feel like I did much, but that was just what I needed.

Thanksgiving is always a meal that seems to take forever to cook, and it isn't too long before you're feeling stuffed. The homemade noodles and Mom's apple salad made the day.
I enjoyed a quiet day at home with family and friends, lots of food, and of course, The Grinch.
I think I've realized this year more than ever, just how fast time flies. 

I'm thankful this year for so many things. God has been so good to me and I really feel this last year was a break through in my life for so many reasons. Regardless of my current struggles, and the place that I find myself in, I am so thankful for a Faithful Heavenly Father who continuously pours His blessings into my life. I hope each of you enjoyed your Thanksgiving.

As for a few of my favorite things this time of year....

 This is my favorite ornament on our tree. I have many that I love but this was the ornament I gave to my grandmother her last Christmas with us. She cherished it, and so do I.
 No matter how hard I try, nothing smells quite like home and Mom's candles burning in just about every room in our house.
 Holiday Soaps...ah I love them, and so does my Mom :)


Nothing beats the Holiday sweets. Homemade cookies galore.
















Ah, tomorrow, it's back to the grind. Only 2 more weeks of the semester but it was nice to stop and slow down for a few days and really just remember what's truly important. 
More posts to come in the future! It's been busy but I can't wait to have time to blog as much as I want to!! 

Happy Holidays Everyone!
