The aroma of fresh pine needles and sweet sap waft through the warm air, as flecks of light play upon the dark walls of the dining room. The notes of Tchaikovsky serve as the background melody while sounds of giggling and merriment echo from the playroom. The kitchen bustles with cookie-making and ornament-crafting, while feline eyes peer in the frosty window watching the activity. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year, and we are doing our best to soak up all this season has to offer.
In our family’s attempt to simplify this holiday, we are trying our very best to slow down and enjoy the moments that can so easily pass us by if we are not careful. In this effort, I will be stepping away from this space until after the Christmas holiday so that I can fully dedicate all of my time to my little ones during this most magical of all seasons. I wish all of you the most wonderful holiday season. One filled with lasting memories and happiness. God bless.
