A Quiet Week …

After Michigan’s first snowfall of the season (Monday) and a stressful weekend at work, I decided on a low energy, restful week.  We made some comfort foods (nachos, mostaccioli and quesadillas), played with pups and talked about Christmas plans.  I made a card and moved some dichro cabs along:       On a positive note …

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year …
