peaceful and content at home for Christmas

~the dearest place on earth to those that live there~
The old farmhouse is dressed in her best. A snowy white winter gown edged in glistening cedar and fir. She smiles knowing her rooms glow... with shining wooden floors and flowers bloom in old pots.
Candles are glowing in every window,
there's a good crackling fire in the hearth and wood smoke curls from her chimney.
The scent of cookies baking and
the fir tree shining with tarnished silver and gingerbread.
The music of laughter and love of old friends & dear family fills every corner. The old farmhouse wraps herself around us and sighs... peaceful and content. ~~ As we begin our family Christmas here on Deerfield, I wish for you the blessings of family and home, the Merriest of Christmases and a most joyous and peaceful New Year.
~~
with love to you my Dear friends on this Christmas Eve,
Christine & family Deerfield Farm

Merry Christmas my dear friend! Your place looks like a dream...with snow and gingerbreads like Tasha and family used to make. :0) I send warm thoughts, and wishes for wonderful new family memories
to you and yours.

With Love,
