Christmas Lights at Night

Here we are just days away from Christmas, and I find myself wanting to savor every moment of families gathering and evenings around the Christmas tree and holiday traditions and the joy on my boys’ sweet faces. The holidays can be hectic and at times stressful, but I think there is nothing more peaceful and serene than our little farmhouse all lit up on Christmas Eve waiting for Santa to arrive. The glow of the tree and candles burning all around as we set out sugar cookies and milk and read The Polar Express and snuggle into bed… Christmas music softly playing in the background… I wish we could bottle up the feeling of those moments to remember all year round.

Each year I join a group of friends to share a little tour of our homes at nighttime and try to capture the magic of Christmas Eve for you to enjoy. If you are here from Thistlewood Farms, welcome! I hope you feel the warmth of our home, the smiles on our faces, and the peace and beauty of this wonderful season. Step inside our farmhouse, sweet friends.
