Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
It's Christmas Day and Jack and I are spending our Christmas holiday alone in Tucson, AZ. No kiddo's (which means NO SHENANIGANS) ....... No grandkids ....... No friends surrounding us this year ....... BUT ...... It is how MANY (hopefully) are spending Christmas this year. I just say ....... WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR. The holiday's in 2021 will be that which NOBODY will ever forget (and I mean that for ALL THE RIGHT REASONS).
Now ...... to help me celebrate the holiday season ...... I was SURROUNDED by some pretty amazing friends who dropped off or mailed me some holiday cheer. Let me share those cards and gifts with you now.....
