Christmas Came Early

It feels like Christmas came early this year:

1) We received the most thoughtful gift yesterday- a true piece of history about our home! Our neighbors keep in touch with the original owners of our house and they gave us an old news article, from 1966, featuring the interior and exterior of our beloved saltbox. I am so touched by her generosity at giving us the news article that she kept for all these years. It makes me fall in love with our home even more. This baby will be going to the framers sometime soon!

2) Our garden is yielding winter vegetables, we have some broccoli and lots of cabbage {which went into our soup last night!}

3) We managed to snap a picture of the two of us, all dressed up, while we were out this weekend. This is such a treat, because we never seem to manage that!

Feeling truly grateful and excited that this week is Christmas.

Y'all look gorgeous in your picture! I am so jealous of your veggies. All we have left are a few herbs and habanero peppers. I need to get ambitious next year and plant more! What a special keepsake about your house, so neat!
