Yesterday I took down all my holiday decorations and cards. It has been really nice to have everything up and made the house warmer somehow. We had such a nice Hanukkah/Chirstmas season, but this last week has seemed really long. My hubby and I reflected on the year we have had. All the wonderful things we experienced, new friends that we made, and sadly a few family members we lost. All in all, it was a great year and we are very grateful. Here are a few pictures I took before packing everything up.
