Quotes about Life



















When it comes to Christmas decorations, there are people who put up a few strands of Christmas lights and call it a day. And then there are these Christmas devotees who blind their neighbors with their decorating efforts, transforming their homes into Christmas displays that rival the windows at Macy’s 34th Street. Intense Christmas decorations are where it’s at.

Which is fine by us. Christmas (and all of December in general) is the one time of year we get to wrap our homes in shiny bright lights, drag pine trees into our living rooms to decorate, pin wreaths to our doors, stick inflatable santas and snowmen on our front lawns, and just be a TINY bit annoying with how much we love the holidays. And honestly, Christmas (or Hanukkah) decorating is FUN. It means you get to go to Target and wander the holiday aisles, and pick out all the different trinkets and lit up strings you’ll decorate your home with.

And even if you’re not a huge decorator for the holidays, don’t you just love seeing how everyone else went all out? Tonight, if you have nothing going on, you should definitely walk or drive around your neighborhood and check out all the pretty lights. They’ll be gone before we know it!




Like a new Diana Meghan Markle will re-invent the Windsors as celebrities in 2018

THE Royals embracing Meghan Markle into the family shows how much the British monarchy has changed and how they are transforming their stuffy past and moving into the 21st century.

Meghan Markle is American, divorced, an actress and mixed race and her marriage to Prince Harry is being regarded by many as a symbol of change in the royal family.

In this new chapter of the House of Windsor, the wife-to-be of Prince Harry will join the Queen for Christmas at Sandringham and attend the traditional church service, despite not yet being married to the royal.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Camilla Parker Bowles and Princess Diana were not invited to spend Christmas with the Queen before they were married.

Miss Markle was even invited to the Royal Household Christmas party this week, which is an event hosted by the Lord Chamberlain at Windsor Castle.



Kate Middleton & Meghan Markle Made Their First Public Appearance Together


Kensington Palace shared candid photos of Middleton, Markle, et al., walking from the estate manor to the church in which the ladies are captured chatting and laughing. The two were also photographed giving a curtsey to the Queen, as is customary.

Middleton wears a velvet-trimmed tartan coat from Italian design house Miu Miu, while Markle is in a camel-colored alpaca coat by Sentaler along with her first fascinator. But the Queen showed everyone up in a bright orange outfit that screams celebration. After skipping services last Christmas due to a cold, she wore an outfit that said not only was she happy to be out but felt like the picture of health.

They'll be sisters-in-law in 2018, so for Christmas 2017 Meghan Markle and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, joined other members of the royal family in attending the morning services on Christmas day in Sandringham, England.

The auspicious outing marked the first time the two appeared in public together. Markle's attendance was yet another a break with tradition, as she has not yet actually married into the royal family.

Also in attendance were Queen Elizabeth and her husband Prince Phillip; Middleton's husband Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge; Markle's finacé, Prince Harry; Prince Charles with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; Prince Andrew; Prince Edward; and several others. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children, George and Charlotte, appear to have stayed home this year.

Sandringham is Queen Elizabeth's country home, settled in Norfolk and part of the royal family's real estate portfolio since the mid-1800s. It includes the parish church St. Mary Magdalene, where the royal family regularly attend services and have since Queen Victoria's era.

Merry Christmas!

Pregnant Duchess Kate shines in festive Miu Miu coat dress on Christmas Day


The royal, who is expecting baby No. 3 in April, didn't disappoint in the fashion department for Christmas Day mass with the royal family at St. Mary Magdalene Church.

Duchess Kate is glowing!

The royal, who is expecting baby No. 3 in April, didn't disappoint in the fashion department for Christmas Day mass with the royal family at St. Mary Magdalene Church. Kate was all smiles in a green-and-red Miu Miu coat that was embellished with large, gold buttons and a black velvet collar.

She added sparkle to the look with her go-to Kiki McDonough Eden earrings while keeping the rest of her look simple with black tights and booties of the same hue. As for her hair and makeup, she kept it simple and fresh for the daytime event, going for her signature curls and some light blush on her cheeks.

She stood alongside a nervous-looking Meghan Markle as they curtsied in front of Queen Elizabeth upon her arrival at the church. Prince Harry could be seen adorably giving his fiancé a pep talk before the momentous occasion -- and it's clear from the photos that Meghan passed her curtsy test with flying colours.

Princess Charlotte and Prince George were nowhere to be found, and we're guessing they're being watched over by their beloved nanny.

Meghan looked just as stylish in a camel coat from Canadian luxury brand Sentaler. She kept the rest of her look simple with a hat, Stuart Weitzman boots and a Chloé handbag -- all in different hues of brown.

Meghan Markle joins Royal family for Christmas Day church service at Sandringham

Meghan Markle has joined the Royal family for their traditional Christmas Day service at the Queen's Sandringham estate in a break with tradition.

Wearing a light brown coat and brown hat, boots and bag, Ms Markle walked arm-in-arm with fiance Prince Harry as they made the short journey from Sandringham House to St Mary Magdalene Church.

She seemed at ease as they smiled and chatted as they walked alongside William and Kate, who is pregnant with her third child.

The Queen arrived in a car and joined the group from the house which also included the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales.

Hundreds of well-wishers turned out to catch a glimpse of the royal family, with some calling out "Merry Christmas" as they walked past.

As they made the return journey to Sandringham House after the service was over, Ms Markle and Harry stopped to chat to some of the crowd who turned out in mild conditions.

Among them was Judith Wallis, who was sitting in a wheelchair and is staying at the neighbouring Park House Hotel on her first Christmas Day visit to Sandringham.

She said Harry recognised her teddy bear called Maureen, which is a mascot for Armed Forces charity SSAFA, and her hat which bore the Gurkha regiment emblem.

She said Ms Markle spoke to them too. "She said lots of things," said Ms Wallis, who is in her 70s and from Chesterfield. She was very, very lovely."

Tess Gilder, manager of Park House, which describes itself as a unique hotel for disabled people, was with Ms Wallis. She said of Ms Markle: "She was just so natural, so lovely."

Ms Gilder added: "I think they just wished us a Happy Christmas and were interested in whether we had been before."

Emily Randall, 31, was first in the queue to get into the area by the church with her boyfriend Jamie Mackay, 42.

Ms Randall said they set out from Chichester in Sussex before 10pm on Christmas Eve and arrived at Sandringham around 2am.

"We thought it would be really busy," she said. "We looked online. We were the first ones here camping in the dark for two hours."

She said they had missed the Queen when she visited Chichester, so decided to make the trip to Sandringham.

Here's What Meghan Markle Has Said About Having Children
December 25, 2017 by Johnni Macke


For those of you keeping track, Meghan Markle has already been married to Trevor Engelson from 2011 to 2013, but does she have any children? The answer is no, though when it comes to having a family with her fiancé, Prince Harry, she is definitely on board.

Although the couple haven't spoken in length about starting a family, during their first BBC interview as an engaged couple in November, Harry and Meghan hinted that having kids is going to happen for them, but just not right away.

"Not currently, no," Prince Harry told BBC when asked about children. "But I think eventually, one step at a time and we'll start a family in the near future."

Meghan has also been relatively quiet on the subject since dating Prince Harry. In 2016, she opened up to Lifestyle magazine about her life, career, and future family.

"I also dream to have a family. It's all about balance, and I have so much happiness in my career and am fortunate to travel the world and see so many amazing things — it will also be nice to be anchored to something grounded and in the same place," she told the magazine for its September issue — which was conducted after she began dating Harry in July of that year. "Raising a family will be a wonderful part of that."

Even before her romance began with the Prince of England, Meghan had discussed her desire to be a mom with another publication. In fact, Us Weekly discovered an old interview via Harper's Bazaar that the actress did with Best Health Canada where she quickly touched upon her family plans.

In the interview, from April 2016, Meghan said that becoming a mom was on her "bucket list." Plus, she added that "I can't wait to start a family, but in due time." No matter when the adorable couple do decide to add to their group, family and being a part of the royal family is something that Meghan is ready for.

"His family has been so welcoming. I have [met several family members] on his mother's side, it's been really important to me too," Meghan said during the couple's BBC interview. "The family has been great, and in the past year and a half, they've made me feel a part of, not just the institution, but of a part of the family."

Since Meghan's future sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, is currently expecting baby number three with Prince William, perhaps Meghan and Harry don't need to worry about becoming parents just yet. But as all fans of the royal family know, royal baby watch is an exciting venture, no matter who is pregnant!




Every year we get a glimpse into the royal Christmas when the queen delivers her annual message at Buckingham Palace...


The queen goes to church every year on Christmas Day, and she always gifts St. Mary Magdalene — which stands on the Sandringham estate — with a Christmas tree cut from her grounds. Other trees from the estate are given to local schools, while the pride of place in her own home is a 20-foot Norfolk spruce. Staff decorate most of the tree with ornaments including tartan ribbons and Queen Victoria's glass angels, but the queen adds a few finishing touches when she arrives, and the children are allowed to hang a few baubles on Christmas Eve.
The family opens their presents in the White Drawing Room (pictured here), and the pale color lit with sparkling lights and candles creates a fairy-tale feel. The room is full of mirrors and glass — there are floor-to-ceiling picture windows, and mirrors on the backs of the doors and inside the glass cabinets — so the whole room twinkles with the reflection of the lights.

There have never been any images released from inside a Sandringham Christmas, but most of the festive greenery comes from the Sandringham estate, including a 20-foot Norfolk spruce which takes pride of place inside the house.


Windsor Castle

The queen spends several weekends in Windsor Castle throughout December, and the property is dotted with 20- to 24-foot Nordmann fir trees from Windsor Great Park. There is a different theme every year, such as "Victorian" or "Regency," but no historic ornaments are used. Decorations are recycled where possible and added to by the curator of the display with purchases from Christmas markets.

In 2014, the "Waterloo bicentenary" display featured miniature Napoleons and Dukes of Wellington, golden bugles, lamé tassels, and wreaths. A cherry picker was used from the estate to put the angel on top, and 1,500 lights were used.

In the year which they celebrated Victorian Christmases
, a tree was suspended from the ceiling, as it was when Queen Victoria and Prince Albert spent the festive season at the castle. It was Prince Albert who popularized having a Christmas tree as we know it in our homes. Before that, it was tradition to bring in a potted yew tree, and Queen Charlotte had hers decorated with oranges, cloves, and sugared almonds.

Clarence House

At Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall Camilla's London home, the towering tree is decked out every year in red and gold, and topped with an angel. The decorations this year include glittered baubles, hanging glass ornaments, strings of beads, tinsel wreaths, berries, and sunbursts set with crystals, and sometimes you can catch a glimpse of their Christmas Card propped in the branches of a tree.

Clarence House

A tradition which the couple has stuck to for many years is inviting in a group of terminally ill children to decorate a tree in their home, followed by a little party. Camilla helps the children hang decorations, and last year served them bangers and mash herself.

Charles and Camilla usually use the same ornaments every year for their children's tree — a mix of fabric birds, wooden rocking horses, stars, candy canes and gingerbread decorations.
