Getting Our Tree

This has been a week of harvests: first our turkey, then our tree. Following our annual post-Thanksgiving family tradition, we trekked to a tree farm and selected, cut, and decorated our holiday tree, while taking the requisite breaks to sip hot cocoa and enjoy the infusion of color and light and music into our home.

I've written before how the Solstice months, June and December, are my favorites. Both represent light and promise, and remind us to be grateful for the abundance that surrounds us. This year, December brings even greater joy as we excitedly await the arrival of a new baby any day.

Wishing you a December filled with light and joy and abundance, and cozy homes from which to enjoy it all.


  1. I really love this post and also the one about your turkey! They have made me think about being even more connected to our holidays and traditions. Best wishes to you with your new arrival and happy pushing! :)

    1. So glad you like the posts. I have found it to be really rewarding to create or rejuvenate family traditions -- particularly around the holidays.
