To all who stopped by, said hello, left an impression and graced my writing with words of kindness and appreciation, I thank you.

Merry Christmas Everyone!! May you always be surrounded by the warmth and love of family.

Tanka – Bells & Past


tiny bells jingle
with each ornament placement –
children’s eyes widen

santa must be near, grandpa
hides a smile, old hijinks on

These photos were taken on the White House Tour yesterday. My first. In person, it felt way smaller than I thought it would be. But gorgeous!! The sheer history of it gave me the chills..

Merry Christmas everybody!!

And may your path for the coming year be sprinkled with hope and love:)
