Thinking Out Loud Thursday - December 16, 2021

Welcome to Thinking Out Loud Thursday where I share something on my mind and invite you to link up and do the same. 

Today I'm reflecting on our dining room when it's all decked out for Christmas.  I love dragging out all the Christmas dishes, silver, and crystal glasses to set the table.  Lots of people never use the good stuff, but I'm not one of them!  Every day is special, so why not bust out the special stuff every chance you get!

My friend Carol gave me these Christmas dishes the first year we were in our house.  I was telling her about them and how they would match our dining room so well.  Soon after, they magically appeared at my house.  I've used them every year since!  

We invested in a long and low centerpiece years ago and it's held up great!  I've thought about changing it, but honestly, it's beautiful and I still love it.  So, if it's not broken don't try to fix it!

Notice that Christmas tree in the corner?  Its white lights and glistening ornaments add the perfect Christmas touch and rounds out the dining room.  

Now it's your turn - what are you thinking out loud about today?  Link up and share!
