december words

We've been having Christmas making & giving ideas sessions. ( Is that even a sentence?) Ideas, yes lots of ideas. I don't know how much we'll actually get done but that's not the goal is it? 

December- a month I look forward to all year. So many reasons to smile into the faces of those we love and those we don't. So many reasons to be thankful. To take stock and see the bounty within our own hands. So many reasons to give

We'll be here most of the month either in the kitchen baking 'shortbread men' (my kids don't like gingerbread), fudge and all sorts of yummy treats or around the table crafting homemade cards, decorations and gifts. Oh, and of course squished onto the lounge reading our favourite Christmas books which are all stored in the Christmas Box. Making memories spending time in creating and expressing our love for others from our hands and hearts.

s l o w       heartfelt       thoughtful       connecting       enjoying       simple       gratitude       l o v e    -     December words

That is a December I would want to be part of. Can I come to your place. I didn't see the words - shopping, hustle, busyness, overspending, bargain hunting.

May it be all you are dreaming of. Hope you have a beautiful month.

Thankyou and the same to you. Yes we are keeping our kids away from the big shopping centres this year, well maybe a night into the city to see the window display but thats about all.

Cause you invited yourself to my house for dinner, I'm inviting myself to yours for shortbread and card making. :) I love this season too.
