The Beauty of the Season


Last night, my hubby, mom, my brother and I took a ride to a place called, "Christmas Village." This is a huge venue which is set up every year in Bernville, PA specifically for the holiday season. It draws quite a crowd from all over and if you have ever been there, you can immediately see why. It has beautifully put together displays in windows, thousands of gorgeous lights decorated in shapes and such around each and every village, they sell delicious food including home baked cookies made right there as you wait, and a couple of wonderful gift shoppes which sell dozens and dozens of collectibles and handmade crafts ...

The down side ~ we only live a couple of miles away from it, but it took us an hour and a half to get there due to heavy traffic. The best time to go is during the week if you can, but we were unable to do so. We still had a great time and everyone was extremely pleasant to one another. In fact, a very nice gentleman walked up to us after observing me taking pictures and offered to take a pick of my mom and I (seen above) for us. He called it "pay it forward" and we did. My hubby was asked if he would take a group pic of some teenagers and he was happy to oblige. 

All in all, a really awesome family night out. I may no longer be Christian in faith, but I very much appreciate the beauty of the season in any case.,

    1. Thanks, Stacy! Yes, it seems to be growing back slowly, but surely. I was told by my doctor that I could color my hair with the wash out stuff, but I am still so afraid to try that as of yet. I guess I am just paranoid. LOL!!!
