Lil and I have slooowed the blog down for the last two weeks of December. With a new grandbaby (for Lil), and 11 people at 4 consecutive Christmas dinners (for me) we needed to take a deep breath and sigh. But in January our ‘secret gems’ will once again be published weekly as we continue to peek into stores and poke into alleyways to bring the best to you, our readers.
For me, the best part of the Christmas season is time spent with my family, extended family and friends. I treasure the conversations, the games and the laughter that is shared when we get together and know in my heart how precious this time is with loved ones.
I leave you with these quotes from the movie It’s a Wonderful Life starring Jimmy Stuart.
Clarence: [In book inscription] Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends.
Clarence: Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?
Merry Christmas and Bonne Annee!
Lil & Linda
