When I was a kid, we had a fire in our fireplace quite frequently, and warm and cozy winter nights by the fire were some of my favorite memories. So when we moved here and finally had a wood-burning fireplace of our own, I couldn’t wait until it got cold enough to light a fire!
Happy New Year friends! Are you a person who makes New Year’s resolutions, or looks back over the year as a whole? I do love the idea of taking a look at the past year ~ an inventory of sorts ~ both personally and professionally. Not just to make resolutions (though I do that, too), but also to see what worked and what didn’t here at Maison de Cinq. When it comes to the blog, I have the advantage of being able to look at analytics and see what you all liked best. And to be honest, my Top Ten Posts always surprise me – at least a little!
Recently I joined a blog hop where we all talked about our homes and why we bought them. Well today we’re back, although on a very different note. Today we’re all sharing about the Spirit of Christmas in our own towns or areas, hosted by Jennifer of Town and Country Living. And I’m sharing all about the best holiday events in Southern California. I rarely do any posts about travel, and I definitely have never done one about things to do in my home town so this is such a fun treat for me!
As I’m sure a lot of you know, I’m a candle lover! Candles are something I adore, and I almost always have one burning in the house. I love how they can warm up a space just with their scent. They can convey a feeling, a mood, or even a season. Truthfully, I can never have too many!
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and that you got the chance to relax and recharge – at least a little!
After the absolute craziness of the season I like to sit back and take a look at the year as a whole. Not just the ups and downs of my personal life, though I do that too, but it’s also fun to take a look at Maison de Cinq. What post did the best? And what resonated with you, my readers, the most? And today, I’m joining some blogging friends who are also sharing their top posts of the year.
Good morning friends, and welcome to our weekly link party, Sundays at Home! This week has been a little crazy for me, and I for one am so glad to have a little R & R this weekend!
This coming week I’ll be sharing my first fall tablescape which is one of my favorite things to do – especially for fall and Thanksgiving! I hope you’ll come over and check it out!
