December 7

Turned 35 today, which I feel is better than 30 (older people please don't laugh). Early morning quiet with tea and a candle, the UK Country Living magazine(!), Laura bursting loudly into my repose to say good morning and cuddle in her long, flannel nightgown, the children, eager with anticipation, handing me their homemade cards and crafts, reading my favorite Christmas book: Becky's Christmas, watching  Take Peace - A Corgi Cottage Christmas with Tasha Tudor , making cinnamon-applesauce ornaments, putting on a kilt, taking tea at the Canterbury Hotel with a friend, taking the whole family to the Butler Rejoice Concert, gratefulness for many things.

Stephanie also turned 35 this month. She sees it as a "big" birthday but not necessarily a bad thing. :)

Oh, you know how I love tea and British magazines. Sounds like a lovely way to spend the day.
