chateaualamode Just wanted to share one of my most favorite Christmas gifts of all time. I met up with my dear friend, Julie, yesterday. We have been friends for over 40 years. We met in grade school. She gave this tray of cookies to me. I was excited for the cookies, but she proceeded to tell me the real gift was the tray. She told me my mom had given her that tray as a wedding gift and it had always been special to her because shortly after she had given it to her she had passed away. Julie would bring it out for special occasions and always remembered my mom and one of the things she remembered was that she would let us make cookies in her kitchen without a care in the world that we had made a mess as long as we had fun ;) She told me how special my mom was and that she wanted to pass the tray along so my girls could share the memories because my mom wasn't able to give me a wedding gift.
A gift filled with such sentiment is truly the best gift! Love you Julie xo

chateaualamode Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new? This child that you've delivered will soon deliver you.
Mary did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm the storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod? And when you kiss your little baby you've kissed the face of God.
Oh Mary did you know.
The blind will see, the deaf will hear, the dead will live again. The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb.
Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is Heaven's perfect lamb? This sleeping child in your arms is the GREAT I AM

By far my absolute favorite Christmas song//let's all be reminded what this season is really all about

chateaualamode My advice for the day...never lose your inner child. Chew bubble gum, laugh uncontrollably, dance when you can and always be a Disney lover #Disneyland 1w

chateaualamode Time for some honesty...seriously did not want to go to church on this last Sunday. My bed was so warm. So cozy. Just wasn't feeling it. But I knew my hubby was counting on me. My daughter wanted to go with us, so I rallied up. Showered and dressed and went, still not feeling it. But funny how God works, the service was amazing and I was reminded that God is greater than...Greater than all my hurts, greater than any pain, greater than any loss, greater than any fear and basically greater than anything we will ever face in this life. I left with goosebumps, reminded that God is greater. So glad I went 2w

chateaualamode Such a great reminder as we get ready to spend time with loved ones and make memories this holiday season. Be present...be thankful. Take in every minute. Love on each other. Step back and watch your children, hug your parents, really look at your hubby. Remember why you fell in love with him. Take the time to enjoy every single minute of the blessings you have. May each and every one of you enjoy and be grateful this Thanksgiving xo 1mon

chateaualamode My heart be still....love this photo from The White Company. It's all kinds of cozy. The fire, the logs ready to go, the fur poof and pillows, the glowing candles, everything right down to the socks and throw. It might be warm on the outside here in LA but I want my home to be cozy on the inside this time of year. 1mon
