Merry Christmas!

Hello Sweet Friends ... 2015 is coming to a close and I would like to share my thoughts and thanksgiving for those that helped Kim Macumber Interiors grow and have our best year ever.

Over the past 7 years I have been fortunate enough to create "my team".  Those whose professionalism and expertise make my job easier and more successful.

Thank you ... 

Carol Forbes - my seamstress 

Alan Budd - my installer

Emily O'Brien - my photographer

Who took this gorgeous photo of a clients home decked out for the Holidays!

Paul Crogan - my contractor

Ben Gerber - my plumber

Ralph Deady - my "new" electrician

Melanie Harvey - my wallpaper guru!

And of course ... the most important, my Clients.  Without whom I could not thank all the people above.  Thank you for inviting me in your home, trusting me to come in and be a part of YOUR team and create for you.  I could not be more thankful and blessed to be able to do what I love do ... a "job" that wakes me up everyday with excitement.

Merry Christmas to everyone ... and if you don't celebrate Christmas ... Please feel the love of the spirit of which I send these sentiments.

Traditions. Connection.

Traditions.  Old and New.  They bring people together. 

When Don and I married 10 years ago we worked hard to keep the traditions that our children had grown to love.  And we created new ones for them.

An old one, from Don's family.  The annual making of the Glög.  Made every year before Thanksgiving.  Only the men take part.  And this tradition has been in Don's family for six generations.  His family is Swedish and this drink is made lovingly each year to share with family and friends.  A drink to toast to good health, family, friendships and love.

When the men in the family reach 18 years old, they partake in the making.  This was Christopher's first year.  Chopping almonds, raisins, adding all the spices to make what I call "Christmas in a glass". And the batch from the year before goes into the mixture.  Keeping the love in tact.

 

Three generations here ... and the women just get to enjoy the drink!

Cheers to you this Holiday.  Whether you celebrate Christmas or not. I hope you enjoy the season and feel the love of tradition and family ... whatever your faith.

Cheers! This next week is going to be crazy my friends ... don't forget the reason we are celebrating.
