Delray Beach- A Holiday, Friends and Family.

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving was a week ago and without missing a beat or being able to take a breath, we are well into the mega-holiday season.

The love of family and the admiration of friends is much more important than wealth and privilege. Charles Kuralt

 

 

 

 

There’s nothing like being able to spend time with your friends and family during the holidays.

There’s only one thing on your mind...FOOD!

Two days after Thanksgiving, we went to our friend’s pig roast.  

And, Larry’s sister arrived this week and yes, we’ve been visiting, celebrating his birthday, and EATING!

A happy family is but an earlier heaven.                      George Bernard Shaw

 

 

 

Thankfully, our morning walks at the beach and visits to the gym keep us from looking like rotund versions of our former selves.

If you do not yet have plans to be with friends or family for the holidays, I encourage you to make some...invite someone you know to share a cup of coffee or meal, gather others who are not with their family and order in if you have to.  

Being with family & friends is NOT highly overrated.

 

 

 

Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light. Helen Keller

There's nothing I value more than the closeness of friends and family, a smile as I pass someone on the street.  Willie Stargell

Have a weekend full of fun, family and friends.

I love this time of year with the back to back holidays. And yes there is more food around at this time of the year then any other. That is one thing I like about this season...although there are so many things to appreciate, besides food, at this time of the year, too.

Hi Kathy - You're right - this is a great time of the year for spending time with friends and family and storing fat for the long hibernation to come.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson the weather here in Florida is perfect for those seeking some warmth!!!!

HI Steffy Hristova Thank you very much.  Hope you are enjoying your weekend. 

Dorie Dillard what a perfect balance of work and family.  Isn't it wonderful being able to help a family get a home before the holidays.

Sheila Anderson small compared to the pictures of your Kenya trip!!!

Michael Jacobs our breakfast place brought Larry a small cake for breakfast!!!  Can you believe it!

Debbie Laity I'm kind of corny but I also love that most people seem to be in a "holiday" spirit too.  It makes it much nicer to be out and about.

Dick Greenberg I like that way of thinking about it.  The problem here in South Florida is that if you store fat you'd better buy one big beach cover-up!

Myrl Jeffcoat many thanks for this!!! And, yes I am beyond full right now.

Good morning Kathy.  We should finish our shopping today and avoid the last minute crowds.  Family will be here Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  A busy time for us as I see it is for you and Larry also.  I'm tired just thinking about our day

I'm also guilty of stuffing my face around holiday time but my motto remains holidays are meant to be enjoyed. Helen Keller's words of wisdom are particularly insightful given her challenges.
