I’m still playing catch-up after such a long silence.
I wanted to share these pictures of my Christmas parties for students, faculty and friends. Mostly, I am very proud of all those decorations! Being in a new apartment, it was quite the task to unpack my Christmas hoard of celebratory items (all 5 boxes of them) and try to arrange them for the first time in my new home.
Usually, decorating takes about 3 days, from beginning to end, but this year it was 7. I was fortunate to have Jackie, the Peace Corp volunteer, to consult with about where things should go and give advice (not to mention help) in lining the walls with lights, posters, sparkly roping and whatever else necessary to fill in vacant spaces. (Many thanks to you, Jackie!)
The end result was magnificent! Everyone who entered received quite a taste of Connie’s Christmas bananza. In Jackie’s words, “I love coming into your home. It just makes me so . . . . happy!!”
Couldn’t have said it better myself. Hope you feel happy, too, after seeing all the below photos. Enjoy!
