how to have a merry christmas

I just got back from a delightful holiday lunch with my talented and lovely friend Pam. Just look at what she made for me.






Isn't it wonderful? It's a handmade book of pockets to organize my Christmas ideas, gifts, traditions, menus, etc. I love it too much to write in it. Pam teaches classes at the scrapbook store and today we flirted with the idea of her making things for me to share with you. Wouldn't that be wonderful?

We had lunch at Heart in Hand in Clifton. I had the Kentucky Hot Brown which was super-de-duper indulgent, smothered in cheese and butter. I could feel my hips fatten with every bite.

Thank you, Pam, for a wonderful Merry Christmas lunch. You're a wonderful friend, so thoughtful and fair and oh-so-talented. I'm so glad we found each other.

How cute! I wouldn't want to write in it either. Also, I wanted to tell you how much I loved my giant letter "B" that I bought from you. It looks great in my office. And my Nest has a cozy little home on my family room mantle. Thanks for bringing us such unique things to covet.

Love this. Now I want one! Now I have to add it to my list of things to make. My list keeps growing instead of shrinking as Christmas draws nigh. Oh my! So sweet.
