Keep it Simple, Sweetie

I have arrived at a place in my life that I have learned or am learning to keep it simple. So many times I have failed to do things I wanted to do with my crew of Blessings because I did not have everything needed to do the project, activity or baking just right. The beginning of this journey came about 5-6 years ago when Mrs. L gave is a basket of refrigerator cookie dough and ready to squeeze frosting.  Guess what, we made cookies and we had a blast. We probably wouldn't have made cookies that year if we hadn't had that gift of easy.  And easy was just perfect. I find it rather funny that it goes that way.
So, without further ado, I present our tree, and it is finished. The family is happy and so I am. I usually spend too much time with ribbons or garlands that it becomes not so fun for my Blessings.  They really just want a tree with ornaments and lights. I am attempting to embrace simple and, Sweetie, so far I like it!


  1. I think it looks great. Our tree has always been simple, I've never done ribbons or bows. That's probably why I like yours so much. :)

  2. Simple and Sweet! My philosophy, as well!

  3. I think it is beautiful. We are being forced to learn to keep things simple.
