When Your Broken Heart Yearns to Be Free

This week's Saturday Scavenger Shots word is FESTIVITY. I must thank Tara @ Eclectic Spaghetti for choosing this great celebratory word!  It is certainly the right time of year, with many parties and gatherings...any kind of FESTIVITY you can imagine!

I've got a couple of things to put up.

Here is a picture taken at our city's holiday party. You will recognize me, looking characteristically awkward. The theme of the night was "A Sweet Holiday Party".  In addition to a wonderful meal, we had a coffee / hot chocolate bar and a candy buffet. I have barely made a dent in the huge bag of candy I took home.  Also, it is the year of my 10 year anniversary, so I received a few extra bucks as a gift. Now that is my kind of FESTIVITY!

Here is the little tree at our little pad.  It makes me feel like every day is an occasion for FESTIVITY! I love having a tree...for a couple of weeks. Then, I can't wait to take it down :)
And there you have it. My small attempts are bringing some FESTIVITY to this ordinary day. Or maybe it isn't an ordinary day after all! May your day be extraordinary in all the right ways.

Excellent examples and you don't look awkward in that photo. The party looks like it was a freakin' huge. The tree looks small and quaint. Thank you for sharing.

I like that photo - that would so be me.

I love having a tree up. In fact, it pains me to take it down each year. After a month, it starts to feel like it belongs in the room.

Jasen: You're too kind :) It is a big party. All those city employees looking for some free grub and raffle prizes!
I have a small place, so a small tree seems best. Thanks for being here.

Secret: Aw :) You strike me as being particularly physically graceful.
Your tree is beautiful! I do remain fascinated by the lights...maybe I just need to string some up somewhere year round.

No, I hate myself in 95% of the photos I'm in!

Happy 10-year work anniversary! I really like your group photo!
