slow down youre moving too fast...

... you've got to make the morning last.

I'm thinking of these Simon and Garfunkel lyrics in reference to all the Christmas advertising, buying and decorating going on.  Before all the craziness begins I'd like to still savor it all slowly and take time to enjoy the journey to Christmas.  As I remember each year when I'm disappointed when it is all over way too fast, it is the journey that is the most fun!

Happy journey to Christmas everyone!
It is all about family, friends and beauty, love, sharing and giving ...

Enjoy your countdown to Christmas!




  1. Truer words have never been spoken. Christmas ads have been on the air since earlier this month! I can't deal. Here's the savoring the meaning and the moment and some quality time with friends and family.

  2. Yes, Yes, Yes! I don't get caught up in it much. I love all the decorations, but if people can't take them down until Father's Day...YES, neighbor across the street from my home, I am talking about you! Please don't put up decorations that will become very sad looking later. Live in the moment.

  3. So, so, so true! This is one of those years. Where did 2012 go?
    I am going to try and take it slow during December, allotting only a short day for work.
    Happy Thursday.

  4. Very true! Christmas is our favorite holiday and we are enjoying every minute of it. Just have to remind myself to slow down. Have a great day Nancy!

  5. I 100% agree with you! Christmas is my FAVORITE time of year, but its the actual planning and decorating thats leads up to Christmas morning thats my favorite. Christmas morning I'm always kinda sad its all over!

    I'm going to freeze time and enjoy every second this Christmas season!

  6. Nancy these are truly beautiful photographs that capture your message which is a good one! I wish we had that kind of makes you slow down! We are in the 70's here still which is very unusual!

  7. Thanks for the pretty reminder! I'm so guilty of trying to pack too much in. As soon as my party is over I can breathe and enjoy! :)

  8. I goes by so fast and than were cleaning up and putting everything away!

  9. It's so true, thanks for the reminder. Normally I am rushing at the last minute to get everything done, but this year I've started shopping and planning earlier so I can enjoy the Holiday more. These pictures are all so pretty!

  10. Lovely post, but I say, bring it on. This year I welcome the craziness. For the past 11 years I've decorated other peoples homes for the Holidays, this its the first time I get to enjoy the build up to Christmas without pulling pine needles out of my hair. Now all we'll need is snow!

  11. I've been to Tysons Corner a few times recently......the parking lots are insane :( Thanks for the reminder, Nancy! So true!!

  12. what inspiring images....I love them....and even got goose bumps. 'Tis true what you say. Oh and I love that S+G song.

  13. I can't believe Christmas is already upon does go by too quickly. But I truly enjoy this time of year. Have a wonderful weekend!

  14. I'm gone to inform my little brother, that he should also go to see this blog on regular basis to get updated from newest news update.
