I entered into this holiday season with the highest of intentions to do less - buy less, worry less, spend less, stress less - and I think I've been mostly successful. We've been enjoying some down-time, a reprieve from our usually full and crazy schedules, and have been spending our days watching cheesy Christmas movies, drinking holiday teas and keeping cozy at home. It's been magical.
Here are some photos from Christmas Eve at our house!
I love this time, this rich season of shared excitement, of anticipation, of going out with a bang. The old traditions that slip away to replace new, slightly modified versions. And tonight, as I write by the light of the Christmas tree, with my two sweet babes cozied up in their matching jammies, I marvel at the beauty of parenthood. It is, by far, my very favourite gift.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, friends. May your days be merry and bright!
