HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE
I truly hope that your Christmas celebrations were as wonderful as mine were. I am so blessed.
After a long weekend of sitting around visiting and playing many rounds of Rummy (Dad has always loved playing Rummy), I took the day off from work as Mom & Dad were flying home today. We had a lovely brunch and then I dropped them at the airport. They should be home safe and sound soon. After dropping them off I decided to brave the mall for a bit. Madhouse. I may actually go out again in a little while anyway though. Hee Hee
Anyway... I hope that Santa Clause was as nice to each of you as he was to me this year. I must have been an especially good girl... even better than I realized. Hee Hee
I received only three gifts but I cannot say enough times how much I absolutely LOVE them all!
# 1 - Mom & Dad mailed me a beautiful Christmas Tree (Mentioned in this post).
# 2 - Mom & Dad surprised me with a visit for the holiday. What a wonderful and unexpected treat.
# 3 - Mom gave me something from her personal wardrobe that I have coveted for many years. She gave me this beauty...
Can you believe it? I am so excited! LOVE it!
I do not know if the color comes through on the picture as well as I wished but it is simply the most gorgeous shade of caramel that I have ever seen. I remember Mom wearing this beauty when I was still in high school, maybe before that. She could not remember herself when she actually bought it or where.
It is made by Danier so you can imagine how well it is constructed. Soft. Soft. Soft.
Don't you think it goes perfectly with these boots?
It was all I could do to not change yesterday just so I could wear it right then but I managed to wait... until today. Hee Hee
I chose to go a little more casual so I selected a light sweater. It has a nice mock neck so it is comfy but warm on a yucky day like today.
I think the wine color is perfect with the skirt. What do you think?
This how they come together...
And the entire ensemble...
I love how it all came together. Mom was so complimentary when I emerged dressed this morning.
I have a new favorite skirt for sure. Thanks Mom. Prepare to see it many times in the near future.
Tomorrow it is back to work but the week should be fairly light. it usually is in and around major holidays.
Hope you have a fantastic week!
