The past few weeks have been filled to the brim. Full of family and friends, parties and travel, and more cups of eggnog than I can count. Our humble little home has gone from messy to clean to messy to clean and every stage in between. We’ve rearranged our indoor world to make room for our Solstice tree (It was a ten foot cedar that Ira selected and chopped down with his ax. And for visual reference, our entire living/dining room is just 15′ x 20′. I’m not sure how it fit, but it did and was so nice.) We rearranged again when the tree was removed to make more play space so the little people that live here have a zone for some special new loot. And we rearranged yet again when a special piece of my grandfather’s furniture was brought home and nestled into the mix. (All of this rearranging and organizing strikes a seriously deep and satisfied chord with the virgo in me. And just in time for the new year. I’m getting off to a good start, at least!) We’ve been busy crafting and playing games, reading stories and stoking fires. And drinking more eggnog. We’re celebrating the return of the light and full of wonder about what this New Year holds for us. We are full to bursting, and there’s still more to come!
Wishing you a blessed New Year that is full of all of the people and places and moments that you hold most dear. Cheers!
