And so begins December...


Oh my goodness! It has been such an incredibly long time since I virtually scribbled in this space. September. And now it is December and we're in the midst of Advent, and I just don't know how those months went by so quickly.

I have been doing some relatively frequent posting on Instagram (see link in the sidebar.) I have been finding the ease of snapping a photo and captioning just more fitting for my life lately, but I have recently found myself missing keeping this space filled with musings and photos. Writing here requires a slowing necessary in order to put down coherent thoughts. Quite honestly, my mental energies have been all tied up in various other places which is probably why I haven't felt the drive to sit down and write here. But slowing is good, isn't it?

So perhaps I will try to be more diligent in my keeping of this blog? We shall see.  But for now, I wanted to just post something of an update and attach a few photos of the happenings around our home. I am soaking in the miracle of Christmas right now. I am in love with this season, with this celebration.

I find that instagram is so instant but like you said, it's thin in lots of talking. Blogging is more mindful and thought provoking but it does take up some considerable time.

Your home is always so cozy. I know what you mean about Instagram, I , too, find it easier to snap a picture or post one quick little post there each day. Hope your Christmas season is extra special, Amber, and many blessings to you and your family.
XOXO
