It is the sparkling season of icy winds, snowflakes on red winter holly berries, and mountain valleys full of a gossamer foggy mist.
We alternate between outdoor projects on crisp, chilly mornings and indoor tasks, warmed by the fire and sips of tea, as we prepare lovely rooms for guests (photos are up & we’re now taking reservations!).
Painting, sewing, scrubbing, organizing, and baking fill our days, along with teaching our curious & giggly little ones.
Christmas decorations are slowly packed away, amid hopes and dreams for the new year.
New socks in cheerful colors are a blessing on cold evenings (thanks, Nana!), and we love to snuggle into our flannel sheets and extra homemade quilts in the clear, moonlit nights.
How are you savoring the simple blessings of the winter?
