I started many years ago participating in ten on ten, a monthly challenge to take ten pictures on the tenth day of the beauty in your every day ordinary life.
This month I thought I’d do ten on ten again…and then I was sick on the tenth. So I did it on eleventh, and now I’m posting on the fourteenth. It’s just been one of those weeks!
So here are a few pictures of our ordinary day and some bits of beauty we found here and there.

Ending the day the same way it began, enjoying the quiet and the Christmas lights. Except some vanilla honey chamomile tea instead of coffee.
Then heading off to bed with our two kitties who like to snuggle. Or attack our feet while we read.
That’s my ten on ten (on eleven) for December 2017!
See you soon!
Well y’all, it’s been one of those weeks where things got…
