This holiday season I am keenly aware of the things that really matter to me. It’s not shopping for the perfect present, getting the wrapping perfect, maintaining a spotless house, baking all the right goodies, or planning an amazing meal. I would love to achieve those things, but they aren’t important. Right now I am counting my blessings – each and every one of the people who makes my life amazing.

I’m doing my best this season, to honor the connections I have to the important people in my life. Our traditions are meaningless if we can’t cut back on the stress and really be present together. This means looking into my daughter’s face when she sees candles light up, laughing with my sons as we cook together, and spending time curled naked in my love’s arms in front of a blazing fire just talking about our dreams for the future.

My biggest dream is to find peace and joy in everyday life and this is my wish for all of you: May you find peace and joy during this holiday season, and always!

Peace and Joy

    You are so right. It is the people around us that make Christmas not the ‘stuff’. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with those people in your life.
