In just 24 days we will be celebrating Thanksgiving and then it will be Christmas before we know it. This year has just flow by and it seems the older I get the faster they go. I love the holidays. I love spending time with family and friends and catching up on what is happening in their lives. The aromas that Thanksgiving and Christmas gives us are absolutely the best. I love the smell of cinnamon, baked apples, pumpkin pie, breads and candies as they drift all through the house. Since I am allergic to Christmas trees we have an artifical tree so I don't get the smell of cedar or pine in the house. But that is okay as I can enjoy all the other smells of Christmas.
This was my Mom's favorite time of the year. A time when all the family would come together and share our love for one another.
