100 Days of Happiness (39/100)

100 Days of Happiness (39/100)

This year marks the latest we have EVER dressed our Christmas Tree, with only 4 days to go!  Whew…..it’s like we barely made it.  But there she is — looking stunning — draped in our memories.   Erin, Cait, Peter and I made a pact this year.  “Only the ornaments we LOVE”!  So, every little glass bobble and bead means something to one of us.  My mom’s antique glass pine cones.  Peter’s mom’s glass wooden shoe and her original Hummel ornament.  Erin’s “Ich liebe dich” heart all the way from Germany and the little Rudolph reindeer she made when she was soo soo tiny.  Even Cait’s Justin Bieber ornament, she received from a friend yeeaaaaarrrrssss ago —- just because he knew it would make her happy 🙂


Every time I look at the tree this year,  my eye catches an ornament….and my heart travels to that time and place.  My heart is perpetually full of #ChristmasJoy #100happydays (39/100)

We’re getting close loved ones!

Ciao for now…..Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
