I was born in Augsburg, Germany, grew up in Northern California. My ancestors are German, English and Scottish . . . settled in Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina and Maryland...all rich in history and waiting for me to discover and share our story.
The Christmas tree that stands so beautiful and tall, adorned with ornaments as old as I am . . . belonged to my beautiful mom (1933~2010). I was blessed to inherit her family room tree (she always had two artificial trees standing in her home) and ornaments. The furry little kitty (who is not real) laying on mom's wicker chair, always hung out in my mom's office . . . he's now comfy in my home and enjoying Christmas Day.
I also inherited mom's Thomas Kinkade Christmas Village collection . . . it's a beautiful village and each time I look at it . . . I smile and mom and all the memories warm my heart and I know she is here with our family.
~ Happy Holidays and warm Christmas wishes to all . . . to our friends and family . . . to remembering all of those who have gone before us, keeping our Ancestors close to our hearts ~ and to making many new memories in the New Year for generations to come . May all your wishes come true ~
