I have been so excited to work on the Christmas post. In fact I have been dreaming about it all of past week. Finally got my hands on it yesterday and finished decorating my home as well. Initially I had planned to bake some cookies...but since that did not happen, I ended up making some mulled wine with cranberries so decided to post that.
The aroma of warm spices cooking with cranberries, my favorite old Christmas carols in the background.... boxes of Christmas decoration scattered around the kitchen. All the mess, that makes a house a home. Even the snow...(I am not fond of winter) seems magical.
This post is a picture heavy post, I will let the images do the talking...since am better at story telling with my camera, not so much with words.

- 4 cups red wine
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 cup fresh cranberries

Wishing you guys Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays ....!!Lots of good health, laughter, fun and love.
