Shannan gives us one photo to speak our minds 
and hope we find the beauty of our day. I'm linking. 

This is the boxwood wreath on the porch from the side view which
includes the moon. We have spotlights this year. They used to shine on my aunt and uncle's home and it would please them that they
are now illuminating ours. That's beauty! 

I knocked out ugly jobs today in the clutter arena. That's beauty!

I listened to Boston Pete's holiday stream today all day on the 'net.
That's beauty! 

I got a video on my phone from a toddler in Oklahoma dancing at a ballgame. That is SO beauty. 

I ate my own homemade maraschino cherries from our own cherry trees, on vanilla ice cream tonight...say it with me..."that's beauty!" 

My children were let out of school half-day due to a bomb threat. 
Everything checked out well and all are safe. That. is. beauty. 

Until the morrow, friends...keep your eyes out for it...the beauty! 

MUST SEE...a blog tour of Christmas homes...each blog leads you to the next and there are just over twenty of pretty:
start here.

Is it sad that I didn't know there was such a thing as homemade maraschino cherries? I bet they are great. (I love maraschino cherries on ice cream, but my husband hates them. Works out well for me when a place puts them on a shake or a sundae.)

Oh, Well!

Oh how I wish I could make those cherries, they are beauty for sure!!! Thank you for sharing the link to the Christmas homes, I'll go and see them all.........
Scary business having something like a bomb threat, so happy that your children are safe!!!!
I just love your post with the candle drippings and all those magical twinkle lights, maybe we should make a hat with lights....they are so soft and romantic, do you think it would silly to have them wrapped around a large hat dusted with snow and glitter?
We could have tea and I could bring the snow to you, we have lots, lol.

see you there! said...

The bomb scare sounds frightening although I imagine all the kids enjoyed having half a day off.

So many beautiful trees!

Love the trips into your mind, Miss Bliss! Beauty is where we find it, that's for sure. And to celebrate it purposely, well, say it with me . . . that is beauty!

Have a super day!
