—- and we’re all a big happy blend of faiths and beliefs (and non-beliefs).
Thanksgiving was celebrated at my home as the 2019 gathering spot. After the last Thanksgiving bite, my friend Ellen Campbell and my daughter Sarah Mirza set out to add cheerful Christmas décor to my living areas. All but the last two photos were shot by Brian Campbell and are uploaded here for passing on the cheer to all my readers, with bits of back stories…..
Full disclosure: Photographer Brian Campbell works out of Southern California. If you live in that area, look him up for professional portraits and much more.
Fuller disclosure: He is my son-in-law.
Merry Christmas, all! There’s a kitchen tip waiting for you at the end, so read through. (Insert angry emoji here.)
Here’s a Holiday Tip (really a warning): Do not EVER put a kitchen mandolin type slicer on your gift list. My mandolin caused such mayhem that my sewing activities have been temporarily halted. I mean, I can’t even bake Christmas cookies due to a sliced thumb. Yep, after two ER visits, it’s making some progress. Still, I’m a never-mandolin person now. No, I’m not using my right thumb while typing this.
My sweet friends, have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanza!
