Christmas Decor 2010: Greenery Wreath

One of the things I love most about seasonal decorating is making wreaths. The possibilities are endless and you can really get creative! It can be as simple or elaborate as you'd like. This time I went with a more simple style, after all, sometimes less is more!

The wreath is hung just to the side of our front door...

Faux Greenery Wreath (My mom pick a bunch up from a friend's garage sale.)

Thanksgiving: Thankful for Family

...And for finally getting a good picture take of all four of us! ...Thanks to my amazing photographer cousin, Tanya! 

"The best things in life are not things!"

What I love most in life is spending time with family... nothing is more precious! The world we live in today is very busy and not very "family friendly." Remember, our time on this earth is short, so cherish every moment!

If you live in the Kansas City area and need a great photographer, I highly recommend Tanya Williams with Draussen Photography!
