Merry Christmas Eve!
My dearest friend Michelle Boyd took Christmas card photos for us this year, and I couldn’t love them more. I’m now the biggest fan of dressed down family photos — like, no shoes allowed.
And dog hair on my jeans. :)
Today, Aaron and I are going home to spend Christmas with my family. Tonight, we’ll be heading to the Christmas Eve candlelight service, watching It’s a Wonderful Life, and eating fudge. You know, all the best kind of happy, sappy, Christmas stuff.
The end of the year is always sacred for me. Think: time to reflect, time to breathe, and time to remind myself of what’s most important in life.
It’s always hard to slow down and take a break — but I’m always glad when I do. I come back refreshed + refocused. So … I’m going to take a little break from blogging until January 5th so I can finish this year well and start next year with purpose.
Here are some fun things for you, while I’m gone:
And here’s a quiet, wintery one for after Christmas.
Making New Year’s resolutions? You’ll like these.
Want a good book? Try More or Less. It’s on the topic of living generously + living with less.
And finally, want another good blog to read? Try Design For Mankind. Pure awesome.
I hope you have the best Christmas + New Years ever! Sending love your way.
