Knives and spoons on the right… Forks on the left. It is engraved in me like nothing else. My Grandma Johnson always put me in charge of setting the Sunday dinner table and each time it had to be just so. There is just something about gathering around a table that has been meticulously set, with so much love and effort put into it solely for those sitting around it.
The Holidays bring so much warmth and joy… candles, cozy blankets, greenery, touch of gold here and there, and holiday family traditions make it all so magical.

Marks and Spencer Christmas Eve Favorites:
Christmas jammies have always been a MUST… opening them up on Christmas Eve is something that I’ve done since I was a kid and a tradition that will never die! This year I opted for something a little more luxurious… don’t get me wrong… I love my HO! HO! pants (which Clay hates more than anything and adorn my everyday much too often. HA!) but this cashmere set was calling my name!!!

Now, we can’t have a holiday post without one of my favorite holiday recipes. I can’t even count how many times I have made this for a few reasons:
- You cannot mess it up
- It is like 4-5 minute prep time.
- They are SOOO yummy, look beautiful and everyone loves them.

Bosch pears cut in half
Scoop out seeds and make a nice little pocket with a spoon
