Christmas has come and gone.  I can’t believe it.  Wasn’t it just October yesterday?  Is this a symptom of being 49+1?  Time flies when your knees pop and crack? 

As for the SMB household, we had a wonderful Christmas filled with love and laughter.  Daddy and Daisy left this morning.  I’m always sad to see them go.  The house is quiet tonight as My Harley Stud and I sit enjoying the fire, our bellies full of warm soup and good bread.  I just love the coziness of a quiet night at home.  What makes it cozy for me?  

  • a fire in the fireplace
  • a favorite throw over my legs
  • a glass of good wine (or two)
  • MHS
  • lots of pillows
  • a good book

What makes “cozy” for you?  Have you thought about it?  Find your cozy spot.  And enjoy it.  After all the craziness of the holiday, these are my “Words of Wisdom” for you. 




Love and Kisses,

Isn't it wonderful to have a fire in the fireplace in Florida? The only time I ever had a fireplace was in the sunshine state and how I loved those cold days.
Sounds like a perfect holiday.

Y'all look adorable in your matching outfits! I don't know why you are worried about the age thing, you look fabulous!!!

What a great looking family!

Cozy for me is anything that involves my oversized plush blankie!

Being wrapped in a quilt on one end of the couch, my better half on the other end, wrapped up. . . both reading a good book, sipping on something hot to warm my insides.

Hmmm....whom shall I be tonight? said...

Fireplace, my VS velour lounge pants and hoodie, and the hubs. Even if we're both sitting on the couch with a laptop in one lap and an iPad in the other.....we're still together.

I'm totally with you: fire in the fireplace, warm throw on my lap, a cat or two snuggling up to me, a book or crochet project to keep me occupied, hubby nearby with his book or whatever...complete bliss.

You all do look great with matching tops.

Cozy is just snuggled up in bed with everyone gone and the laptop there and me snoring away. Yup, that is real cozy and the cat laying at my feet purring.

God bless.
