Christmastime has arrived in Valmonte. If you ventured out in between the rainstorms this weekend, you certainly saw the flurry of activity as lights were being hung from nearly every roof line, tree branch, and picket fence. Of course if you passed by my house, you may have noticed we finally managed to hang a few pictures on the walls – no lights yet. Regardless of my own decorating guilt, it’s a pleasant time to take a stroll with the dogs, your kids, or just your honey to enjoy the night’s lights. I’ll continue to gather inspiration as I walk our two canine friends, and hopefully by this weekend at least one more house will join the holiday lighting tradition.
