let there be rest

Today is the first day of our Christmas break. We have all celebrated by spending most of the day (so far) in bed or on the couch watching Christmas movies and nibbling on cookies. We are worn plum out from a long week of work and school, and as our festivities really begin in earnest tomorrow, we decided that today would be a day for recharging. For resting and going slow. 

So we are still in our pajamas, and there might be some slight snoring happening in another room at the moment.  I have watched Christmas in Conneticut and now I am watching The White House Christmas special on HGTV. Love Actually is on the docket for tonight, along with every Christmas episode of The West Wing, while I finish up some homemade presents. 

This morning the sun was shining brightly so I grabbed my camera, balanced on my crutches and snapped a few pictures of our kitchen Christmas decor. 
This is the first year that our kitchen is this lovely pale shade of robins egg blue and I love how the red pops against it. I think I will keep the buffalo check curtains to use each Christmas. This is a great compromise because I hated to get rid of them all together. And yes, this means I am becoming one of those people who changes out her curtains and bedding just for the holidays. But let's not panic- The shower curtain and bath towels are still safe, so maybe I have not crossed over to the dark side just yet.

I hope you find a moment or two of rest today my friends.
Don't let the busyness consume you.

Much love.


  1. wait, i am not supposed to change the curtains??! (I switch that stuff all the time!)

  2. Your days sounds delicious and well deserved. The house looks lovely, so Christmasy and warm. Enjoy all your festivities. Merry Christmas Greers. Oh BTW, framed my JOY poster today and hung it by the back door to great all our guests, thanks so much. Hedy

  3. Love your home! So much character. Merry Christmas!

  4. A lovely way to spend the day! Our day was very similar. We watched Toy Story, Narnia and Family Man. I spent most of the day in my favorite chair having creative play time. Your house looks so Christmas charming!
