And to all a good night…

I love night time, especially after the kids are in bed (not that I don't love 'em, I do!).  So much of my life is noise—work and family and errands and that never-ending pile of laundry.  But not tonight.  Tonight it's quiet.  

I wonder how many of you like to look around your houses right before bed.  

The fire is slowly dying…   

Night lights are on…

The last candle is burning, though not for long…

The dishwasher is purring and churning…

The gifts are wrapped and awaiting the chaos of Christmas morning…

Such a pretty tree.  Just think of its journey and sacrifice…

The bathroom light left on, just in case…

Finally, there is rest…


  1. Very nice post. I love the evening, too and the early morning. I am an only child, so quiet time, I like :) Thanks for stopping by and following me! I will do the same. I love your tree, very pretty!
