Sleigh Bells

An old-fashioned style Christmas in our circle of friends this year.... delightful!   We joined neighbors, their children and grandchildren on a sleigh ride through the snowy woods.  The horses were simply amazing taking us up and down hills to eventually stop at a warming cabin complete with hot chocolate and a sizzling fire in the wood stove.  The view was fantastic overlooking Lake Michigan and N. and S. Manitou Islands off the shore of Leelanau County. 

Christmas Eve found us at the charming home of friends where we shared a potluck supper and went to a candlelight service with traditional holiday music and carols.  

At home I set our dining table with my husband's Aunt Martha's etched clear and red fruit bowl and candle holders.   Always brings back fond memories of her.
Hope your holiday has been happy!
