Well, it's that time of year already...can you believe it? Thanksgiving is literally around the corner, and holiday decorations abound!

Ready or not, the holiday season is here. My philosophy this year is, I'm going to enjoy every minute of it! It's been a tough year for many folks, our family being no exception, and it could be easy to let that influence our holiday season.

My husband and I decided that we are going to have a great time putting up our holiday decorations inside and out, enjoy every day of the next month or so, and be grateful for every day!

How about you?

As I write this newsletter my Christmas decorations are out of the boxes and ready for their holiday placement. I enjoy changing my Christmas displays each year, so I take some time to ponder the possibilities!

Do you need some inspiration for your holiday decorating this year? Be sure to read about Christmas Decorating Ideas at Great Home Decorating. Just click on the beautiful little Christmas tree above for all of the details!

Putting up a Christmas tree and getting it decorated can be fun, or it can be a source of frustration. I have a great system for getting the Christmas tree (or trees, if you're like me and have more than one in your home!) put up, lights on and decorated without stressing out. Click on the beautiful picture to the left for all the info!

It just wouldn't be the holiday season without shopping, right? No matter the size of your budget, there are probably some purchases that need to be made.

So, you could get in your car, drive from store to store, stand in line (for a looooooong time at some stores!), try to avoid all the germs and viruses dancing around get the idea!

Or, you could shop from the comfort of your own home, whenever you please, and never have to stand in line once!

Here are some great online shopping sources for your holiday needs, or anytime for that matter!. Most names are household words, and all are offering specials, of course.
