Take Time To Really See

Three days remain until Christmas, and like many of you, there is much to be done around my house...menus to finalize, shopping to be done, packages to wrap, cooking...

I just had to show these cute Christmas measuring cups a dear friend gave me this week!

There is so much beauty this time of year...inside and outside. While we rush about, make sure you take moments to just appreciate what is before your eyes.

Look at life from different angles...it just takes a little time to STOP and SMILE.

There is so much beauty in the season.
Don't miss it!

Open the door...look around...relax...everything will get done..and you will have a little peace on top of it!

Have a wonderful Sunday ...I will see you later to discuss what I am wearing Christmas day!


  1. Once again, Pamela, have a very Merry Christmas! We'll enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the season.

    Best always~

  2. It is such a beautiful time of year, Pam...wishing you much happiness at christmastime and may 2014 be a wonderful year for you and your family.
    Thank you for popping by; I'm delighted you are loving your poncho :)
    With my love xx

  3. Good morning Pam
    What a wonderful post. I so wish we could meet for coffee on a regular basis and chat. Your posts are always so honest and from the heart.

    Have a great Sunday!

  4. Oh yes it is a beautiful time of year. Good reminder to open my eyes and take it all in!

  6. Lovely pictures and thoughts - thank you Pam, and enjoy your preparations. xo

  7. My goal this Christmas is to be in each moment and not rush.
    I loved your photos. Lovely.

  8. I've loved your last two posts, Pam! I hope you have a Merry Christmas with your family, especially your adorable little grandson! I am giving myself over to all the hustle and bustle for the next few days--I'm going to decorate the tree with the kids right now (oh are we late, just got a tree yesterday!) and we are going to see Santa at Macy's Herald Square tomorrow morning. Thank you for always lifting my spirits. You are one special lady. XO, Jill

  9. I love looking out your front door, we opened the door this morning to yet another 30 cm ( 12 inches) of snow, looks very Christmassy here but very treacherous. Thank you for the reminder though, take a moment and savour the beauty


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
