Happy Hour Time

Welcome to Friday Happy Hour Time! I cannot believe that it is only five days till Christmas…that means only four more shopping days! I don’t know about you but there always seems to be a little bit of last minute Christmas shopping left every year! It has truly been a wonderful holiday season so far, with all the beautiful decorations, Christmas lights, the holiday spirit floating around, the nip in the air, now…if only some of that snow from the North could make it’s way down South in time for Christmas well, that would just be perfection! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week and an even more fabulous weekend ahead! Cheers! 

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons, It came without tags, It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled till his puzzler was sore, then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he though doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
~How the Grinch Stole Christmas, by Dr. Seuss
