    What’s To Come at frazzled JOY in 2020?

    2020?!? Such a weird thing to type out that year. I don’t know why but it seems so futuristic. Although life today isn’t much different than life 30 years ago. (Aside from the technological capabilities we have now of course.   😉 ) You know how when you’re young and you talk about the future and it seems so far away…? Ya it’s not that far away as it turns out! Anywho, enough of that. I’m a little late at looking back and looking forward. Evaluating what we accomplished in 2019 and making plans for what we want to accomplish in 2020. But, here we are, the kids went back to school today, and I think I’m ready now.

    Christmas at frazzled JOY 2019

    Hey there everyone! I’m happy to be here today to share our home with you all decked out for Christmas! Hubby and I just got back from a wonderful getaway to New York City. We are happily exhausted! The city is magical at Christmas time and something I have always wanted to experience. It was so fun to share it together. Because of our trip, I actually got the house decorated earlier than usual. We had quite a bit of it done before Thanksgiving, which is usually a big no, no around here. And, also because of our trip, I kept everything pretty simple which I’m actually loving. But, I’m going to stop talking now and let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
