This photo is from about four years ago. It came up in my FB memories. I liked the wildness of it on our deck. It was positioned so we saw it through our sliding french doors. So pretty.
I wanted to share a lovely comment I received yesterday. Lisa said, "Although we have political beliefs that are 180% apart, I enjoy reading your blog due to the sense of hospitality, warmth and beauty that it conveys. I want you to know that I tried your turkey roasting method for Thanksgiving, and it was received with rave reviews! I will definitely make this a tradition. Thank you!"
I was very happy to receive this comment. I think it shows maturity and that even though we may differ on something, we have common ground and that is what Lisa has chosen to focus on. She has never commented a negative thing to me.
This is how we can use our time online. Finding beauty and a good recipe for cooking turkey, and leaving the rest behind. I have a dear, precious friend who has a difference of opinion than me on a big topic. She still comes to my blog and comments on posts that aren't about the thing we differ on. You know what? It's okay that she has a different opinion than me. She is a sister of my heart and we have much common ground!
If everyone could be like Lisa, and my dear friend, the online world would be a happier place for everyone! Thank you Lisa!
I made a video of my living room this morning and I forgot to turn the lamps on! This is what the room looks like with just the Christmas lights on.
And here it is with the lamps on
Last year I shared this aerial tour of Christmas lights from the 717 Drone Guys and I want to share it again this year. It's beautiful!
