Merry Christmas from my little part of the world!


 We've sure spent time in our 'own little part of the world' this year, haven't we! 


But I feel blessed to have been here in Florida, enjoying the nice weather and good hiking trails nearby.


It's been a difficult year for so many. I won't complain because many have had it much worse.


I'm wishing a very Merry Christmas for those who celebrate this holiday.


And a beautiful blessed time of year for everyone!


(from a few years ago)

We have much to be thankful for every year!


My house with a 'few' embellishments! ⛄ 

Be sure to tune into your Hallmark channel on Christmas day for a beautiful fireplace scene with cute critters and beautiful music in the background!


Sweet holiday hugs, Diane

I’m joining Thankful Thursdays and

I like Thursdays HERE too!

You are so right, all of us can find something to be thankful for. I'm glad I'm blogging and so very grateful for the kind and caring friends I have made while doing so. I said I may be gone until New Years, but then I found another picture I had to share. I wanted my friends to see it, to add a smile. I'm grateful for your friendship. Merry Christmas.
