one day with Izzy
all we needed was a little snow..
a week later, it arrived
“I know what I really want for Christmas.
I want my childhood back.
Nobody is going to give me that. I might give at least the memory of it to myself if I try. I know it doesn’t make sense, but since when is Christmas about sense, anyway? It is about a child, of long ago and far away, and it is about the child of now. In you and me. Waiting behind the door of our hearts for something wonderful to happen. A child who is impractical, unrealistic, simpleminded and terribly vulnerable to joy.”

May you take time
to celebrate the quiet miracles
that seek no attention.
May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven
around the heart of wonder.

“Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night”
Taking a short blogging break to spend the holidays with my family.
Until then, I wish you a very happy holiday season! See you in 2016!

“Because we need a little Christmas…”
I will be going full force in the kitchen starting tomorrow with all the holiday baking. And then there’s all that wrapping I have left to do.
So I’m popping in a day early to wish you all a lovely weekend.
