my happy place

christmas at gertens

My family and I went to Gertens to soak in the holiday goodness yesterday afternoon. I could spend hours there just looking. Everything is so beautiful.

Our theme for the journaling lesson at the December Faithbooking Crop was "Meaningful Family Traditions"; I heard several inspiring stories from the women there about traditions important to them and their families. [I'll be posting that lesson later this week.]

I've got some work to catch up on (the stomach flu invaded our house on Friday); be back later!
