Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

Thank You!

Since I’ve started this blog I’ve met some wonderful people. I know this virtual world shouldn’t replace your “real” world, but when you start to understand that there’s a real person on the other side of the screen working to deliver an interesting, fun and informative site to the readers, you start to comprehend that you’ll just continue doing this if you’re really passionate about the work and, in my case, the people you meet and I’ve met so many wonderful people thru this blog and I know I will meet many more because you attract to you what you wish in your life.

Once I read that if you like something about the person you’re talking to you should say so. The other day I went to my son’s Christmas concert at his school, and I saw a little girl that I knew she had spent at least 2 hours to get ready. The next day I saw her I told her that I loved her dress and that she looked so beautiful. I could feel her happiness, and she could feel that I was being honest, which is key. But my point is, you have to be more welcoming to the “good”, to the “better” in this life. I believe that being here and having each and every one of you is my daily gift. I love reading all the comments not only because usually they’re very nice to “hear”, but also because I know you were here.

This post is about Christmas in the way I believe it should be. Christmas is a celebration of Love. If you’re Christian, it’s a celebration of your love for Christ, but even if Christmas isn’t about religion to you, Christmas should be about you with the ones that are special to you. Exchanging gifts should be about showing your appreciation for each other, giving hugs and wishing a “Merry Christmas” should be about “thank you for being by me”.

I’ve selected some images from some blogging friends that I truly admire and truly appreciate for everything they are to me, for all the inspiration, for all the comments, for all the emails and links, but most of all, this is about me saying to them and to all of you that read my blog that I am deeply grateful for you being part of this place, a place that I cherish with my heart.

Merry Christmas, friends!

    I had to giggle when I read your post, it sounds like something I do! I have left messages that were missing words, or my train of thought derailed! Whatever…just glad you left a message so I could find your fabulous blog! What a bevy of design ideas in this post alone. Can’t wait to have the time to go back and look at more! My cousin is a decorator and I must pass your website along to her. Hope you are feeling better sweetie, I know how bad a cold makes you feel!

  27. Oh I saw this sweet post and left a reply, don’t know where it went. You are such a doll. I have so enjoyed meeting you and learning from you. Such a talent and you always have the most interesting and inspirational pictures to share. I really look forward to the coming year and getting to know you better. I hope you and all your family have a most Blessed Christmas. Love your friendship, that’s a special gift. Hugs, Marty
