Simple Pleasures #17

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving.

I consider the holidays to be a time of simple pleasures, but if you are feeling stressed, like many of us, you might want to get some coping tips. 

As we head into the next few weeks we will once again be entertaining, buying gifts, and decorating our homes.

Despite Tessa's frowny face of disapproval my apartment was all decked out for Christmas before Thanksgiving.

I'll start to share what I have done as soon as I clean up the big mess I made while putting it all together.

I envy people who can somehow be creative without making a mess.
