It’s that gossamer season, lightly veiled in dreams of Christmas morning and savoring reminisces of past joys, as the depths of the heart seem to spill to the surface.
Contrasts abound with the giving and surrounding with comforts, the chill in the air and the warmth of firelight, the cloudy, dark nights and the glow of Advent lights, of busily preparing gifts and sleepily resting on a winter’s eve.
A glimpse into our home this week:
Sleepy Sunday afternoons (can you spy a treasure under my tree?) with books of crafty inspiration.
Baking sweet blessings (inspired by The Jesse Tree Journey), using delicious Gold-Label Virgin Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions* (What a delight to make healthy, dairy-free treats for our family & friends!)
Juicy oranges and sweet giggles of joy.
Celebrating four years of a precious blessing.
Waking up to a teacup of sweet & spicy flavors. (The linky is still open until 12/13, so add yours!)
Sparkling clean floors with a new steam mop!
The crisp smell of fresh greenery in homemade wreaths.
Bright coats of new paint, as we prepare rooms for guests.
A little “sheep,” excited for the upcoming Christmas play, humming bits of carols.
What are you simply savoring in this festive time?
