As I sit here and realize our house is finally decorated for the holidays, I can catch my breath for a minute. As much as I loved decorating every room in our house, decorating the kitchen for Christmas was a special experience.
Now that my husband and I are empty nesters, I find it harder to do the grocery shopping.
