The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Holiday Weekend . . .  

December 23, 2011

The Holiday Weekend . . .

Having just dressed up my home for a gathering last night that was quite magical and now looking ahead to time with friends, quiet moments with loved ones and traditional, can’t-wait-to-partake-in activities, I feel as though I am a kid with so much to be giddy about. Life really can be a grand amazingly wonderful thing when we slow down and realize all that we have to be fortunate for, and it is my Christmas wish for all of you that you are feeling giddy and festive as well. 

It isn’t the gifts that make us wealthy, it is our outlook, the energy we project to the world and the definition we hold of what makes life full and us contented. When we grasp these three ideas correctly, life takes an amazing stride in the right direction.

Right now my mind is full of visions of Paris (for reasons I will share later in the new year), the acceptance that dreams can become our reality if we open our hearts and minds to them, and the many thanks of appreciation I owe to you, my readers.  For all of your holiday wishes, kind and generous comments, I am so very grateful. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule during the holiday season to visit.

Here is a look back on the past week on The Simply Luxurious Life:
