The week before Thanksgiving, I found myself filled with anticipation thinking of the month ahead. After several months of busy, busy, busy, and going, going, going, I was looking forward to special visits from friends, and special holidays, but also many days spent at home with nowhere to go. Warm in our cozy home, holiday smells of orange and cloves and cinnamon in the air, cuddling on the couch, cutting out paper snowflakes, baking muffins and pies and simply... resting and savoring sweet moments.
The girls begged me to dig out our Christmas decorations and we spent one fun afternoon cleaning the house, putting away everything fall, and bringing out the things that reflect a new season. How fun it was to pull out little memories... pine cones we gathered in the yard a few years ago, pom poms Jillian and I made into garlands and and a wreath a couple Christmases ago, and even the sweet mittens we crafted last December.
Here's a little peek into our December nesting...
I hope you're having a warm, wonderful first week of December. Hopefully with less planned this month, I can spend a little more time here. :-) As always, I'm filled with gratitude for your sweet comments and for visiting here.
