Merry and Bright

Nothing says Christmas like red. My LRD was bought several years ago in Florida, made in USA. I wore it recently to a Christmas dinner party, a Christmas luncheon, a Christmas concert and an Old-fashioned Christmas Event with my grandchildren. Cost-per-wear, this dress owes me nothing. Doing the math, it probably cost me a dollar every time I wore it.


T’was the Night before Christmas: an old-fashioned Christmas event at a Westfield Heritage Village with Father Christmas (real beard, fake fur). It’s been awhile since I had my picture taken with Santa.


This pioneer village is a living museum with over 35 historical buildings; it’s like taking a journey back to the 1800s.


May your days be merry and bright!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
