Christmas at home is always nice, being with loved ones, in a warm and familiar coziness.....But, I've always dreamed of spending Christmas day in a fantasy type, storybook setting. There are several places in the world that would be amazing places to be during the holidays, such as New York city or the little villages throughout Germany(the ones that the little ceramic villages are modeled after) or even Continue reading the story "I’m dreaming of a Blantyre Christmas…"
