Hers...Fall Porch Lost Cay Cottage

 I'm on Instagram @quartersone almost every day but I miss being here on the blogosphere!
In the spirit of post military retirement I am still attempting to downsize so Fall decorating on the porch is just a touch.
A new pillowcase from Pottery Barn and a few pumpkins.
Less is more, right? 

Here's fall on the porch of the beach house we call 
Lost Cay Cottage. 

There's a little change of color at the beach!

With Gratitude, Shand

Merry Christmas Eve!

From Pinterest, I'm pretty sure he's the real Santa Claus!
 I still believe in the magic of Santa Claus.  
At some point in time our children asked if Santa was real and even added they didn't really believe in him. 
My reply was this..
  Santa is most definitely real. Part of his magic is that he has the power to make himself look different at different times of our lives.

When you are small children, Santa Claus looks like a jolly man in a red suit making a wild sleigh ride across the night sky. 
When you get a little bit older Santa may look more like your parents. 
When you're even older...oddly enough Santa may look like your friends or even look like yourself.
Whatever physical form he takes throughout our lives, rest assured that his spirit, the spirit of giving and loving unconditionally, is indeed real.
You just have to believe.

Here's to the magic!
Happy Christmas to you and your family.
I hope Santa Claus is good to you this year, however he appears.
