Hello friends, today you are in for a wonderful treat! Take a 10 minute break, sit down and grab a cup of coffee and take in all this incredible holiday beauty. This was a natural decompressor for me and sorely needed. I first want to apologize as choosing only four is going to feel like a herculean task. There are so many incredible pictures between these two rounds. Each one with a special meaning. I so loved pouring over these and only regret we had to turn so many away. Next year we will expand the contest over a week so we can include even more entries! As is, we went well over our limit, which makes this just a little harder:) So it’s time to take in all this holiday beauty in and to vote for round one. You can choose your four favorites, which you feel best exemplifies Holiday Love. And here we go- ___________________________________________________ CHOICE 1 CHOICE 2 CHOICE 3 CHOICE 4 CHOICE 5 CHOICE 6 CHOICE 7 CHOICE 8 CHOICE 9 CHOICE 10 CHOICE 11 CHOICE 12 CHOICE 13 CHOICE 14 CHOICE 15 CHOICE 16 CHOICE 17 CHOICE 18 CHOICE 19 CHOICE 20 CHOICE 21 CHOICE 22 CHOICE 23 CHOICE 24 CHOICE 25 CHOICE 26 CHOICE 27 CHOICE 28 CHOICE 29 CHOICE 30 CHOICE 31 CHOICE 32 CHOICE 33 CHOICE 34 CHOICE 35 CHOICE 36 CHOICE 37 CHOICE 38 CHOICE 39 CHOICE 40 CHOICE 41 CHOICE 42 CHOICE 43 CHOICE 44 CHOICE 45 CHOICE 46 Which FOUR entries do you choose for round one of Holiday Love? Which FOUR entries do you choose for round one of Holiday Love? ___________________________________________ Well, if this won’t get you in the holiday spirit, not sure what will! It definitely reminded me how magical this beautiful holiday is, though its been tempered by Covid and the stressors that come with it. Every one of these pictures reminds me of what is important, so thank you to all my readers. And to everyone else for voting and taking part in the fun! Be sure to stop by tomorrow for round 2. It does not disappoint. Hope everyone is staying sane and checking off those holiday lists. My theme “it is what it is” prevails and I love that I have given myself the grace to do the best I can, but that there is room for error, omission and even forgetting things (like paper white bulbs that I forgot growing in a box in my trunk). I had to laugh at that one! Thanks for stopping in, wishing everyone a wonderful and peaceful day. Until tomorrow…..
