Chari at Happy to Design is hosting another edition of "Sunday Favorites" and I'm joining in for the first time. Summer is such a busy season, this is a great way to share an older post with new friends who might not have seen it. After your visit, make sure to pop over to http://happytodesign.blogspot.com/ and see who else is posting their favorite "blasts from the past" . I've decided to share the very first post I ever did. Just think of this as "Pre Christmas in July" Lets go back in time to November 2008 and see one of the reasons I love the town that we call home. Bragging alert - Georgetown was just named one of the 100 Best Small Towns to live in America by Money magazine. Gee, I could have told them that years ago!
Thanksgiving is over and it's time to celebrate my favorite season. Our little town has several wonderful yuletide traditions. On the Friday after Thanksgiving at sunset, people gather on the courthouse square to sing carols and "flip the switch" lighting up the courthouse and the buildings on the square. Georgetown has a lovely square with beautiful buildings restored to their original grandeur. There are wonderful little shops with so many unique gifts and handcrafts, art galleries and restaurants. I love strolling around and seeing neighbors old and new. Here are just a few pictures from this annual event.

Hope you enjoyed our little trip back to November. I feel cooler already. Now stop by Chari's and see what everyone is sharing today.
