Christmas Decorations

It took two days and three of us working on it, but Christmas is up. I still have the holiday dishes and winter mugs to switch out, but I can do that tomorrow after I have a chance to stop at the grocery store and get my first carton of egg nog.

In the days ahead, I have very few presents to buy because those of us who are over twenty-one will contribute to a local charity instead I exchanging gifts. I have to get the country ham, make the apple-orange cake, and eventually being greens into the house. But after this weekend I feel caught up.

I enjoy this time of year. My family observes many holiday traditions and I’m looking forward to seeing how they may change now that Frank and I are grandparents. Little man is going to love all the twinkling lights.

Beary Merry 2014

Last night was the third annual Beary Merry Holiday Extravaganza, a fundraising show hosted by the Music City Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The variety of entertainment, the dancing, the hilarity, and then community support for OutCentral was amazing, but it’s the smiles that will stay with me.

My favorite thing about being a Sister is how our work brings together such a diverse group of people. There’s something about the makeup, the outfits, and the general goofiness of it all that creates a space where people can celebrate whose they are without fear of judgment. I’m so happy to be a part of it!
