Once in a while you meet someone . . .
that you instantly realize you were destined to know.
Your paths crossed simply because you were in the right place at the right time . . .
My friend, Patti, is one of those people. We met 3 years ago during our City Wide Garage sale when the Hubby and I drove up on her house which was decorated on the outside with everything that I love: junk! I knew I had to get out and rummage through her sale! Boy was I glad I did!
We got to chatting and quickly came to the conclusion that we had a lot in common and exchanged numbers. She began following my blog and emails have gone back and forth since then.
Last year, I asked if I could come and photograph what I undoubtedly knew would be a well decorated home for Christmas. Patti did not disappoint! From the scarf wrapped wreath that greets you when you walk in, to the 12 foot tree decorated ever so minimally with all of the right things: hand strung popcorn garland, tinsel & vintage postcards . . .
. . . to her annual Candy Cane tree:
. . . you are sure to find something that will bring back memories for you of the warmth of the holiday season, just the way it was meant to be remembered!
And what touches me the most about Patti’s home at Christmas is the little spot in her kitchen (if you blink you might miss it) that honors her Grandmother:
It’s a picture of Patti and her Grandmother and behind the photo is her Grandmother’s handwritten Christmas cookie recipe. It’s a simple reminder that Christmas isn’t all about presents, it’s about presence. It’s the feelings of the season that we remember the most!
Thank you, Patti, for your friendship and for letting us into your home for the holidays. I treasure your friendship and I’m ever grateful that I got out of the car that day!
Merry CHRISTmas Eve to each & every one of you & your families! From our Nest to yours!
P.S. Do you have a friend like that? That you wouldn’t have met were it not for that fateful moment? I want to hear about it!
