Christmas Memories

Tis’ the season and I thought I’d share a story.
Tony and I have a weird holiday tradition that we have been doing every Christmas season for years.
 
Years ago, Tony and I lived together in what was our first apartment. We were so young. Brandon was about two years old…it was two years before we were married and a little over three years before Taylor came along.
We lived on the first floor and our next door neighbor (Mrs. Green) was not unknown for having more than a few drinks over the weekend. Anyway, this particular Christmas, Mrs. Green was feeling real… REAL nice🥴🥴. She had Charles Brown’s “Please Come Home for Christmas” on the turntable All Christmas Eve and into most of Christmas morning! And the record was scratched! 😱😩🥴🤨💽📀😴😲!!!
Well, our tradition for years now, is that when ever we hear the song, Please Come for Christmas, we have to raise a toast to Mrs. Green! As soon as those bells ring 🔔🔔🔔 and Charles sings… 🎼Bells Will Be Ringing…🎼 we have to have to go pour ourselves one for Mrs. Green!🥂20181207_1742244680460631780559066.jpg
We were crazy young back then and times were rough in that little one bedroom apartment but that is one of my favorite Christmas memories! To Mrs. Green! I hope that man finally came home for Christmas, but if not for Christmas… New Years Eve! 😉🎄🎅

Hello, Hmm... What to say? I always hate filling in these "About Me" sections of the profile. I never quite know what to say. Or I'll start writing only to find I've gone over the character allotment and half the things I've typed are not there. Ok, I just looked... I don't see a character limit so here goes... My name is Carol, although sometimes I refer to my middle name (Andrea) which is the name that my family calls me and people whom I grew up with from a wee tyke. Anyway, I just quit my retail job. Did I mention it was in retail? Right... I was there for seven years until I finally decided I had, had enough... that my sanity, and my emotional and physical well being were far more important to me than a biweekly paycheck. Don't get me wrong... I am thankful to have had the opportunity to have had a job. It was exactly what I needed and where I needed to be at that point in my life. but right, this is exactly what I need and where I want to be at this point in my life. Being "jobless" can be a scary thing at times. But not having to punch a clock everyday allows me the opportunity to do what I love... Cultivating what makes me happy... Creating quiet beautiful spaces in my home... Learning about different ways of being and and reconnecting with Self. I am in the latter half of my fifth decade and finding it to be one of amazingly beautiful growth. I embrace my true voice and my own sense of style while finding different ways of cultivating my personal well being and sharing what I learned works best for me. I hope you stop by from time to time to say hello and join me on my journey. Be Well!
