  104. Hopefully this isnt a repeat post but my computer froze and I dont see it posted.

    Your wreath is gorgeous, I love it! One of the traditions we have every year is making new ornaments together for our tree so we have something new to hang that we made together.

    My Grandpa also used to read us the night before Christmas on Christmas Eve every year but now that he has passed, I am carrying on the tradition with my own kids.

    Thanks for the great giveaway, I would love to win it!
