Holiday Hibernation

It’s funny how you think you have loads of time to do things after the holiday shows, but then a week of holiday prep just flies by and your aspirational to-do list still sits there. Meanwhile the books you picked up from the library are tempting… Then I slowed down for a minute, and now […]

A pause before entering 2017

Well here we are, it is 2017! I meant to blog a bunch of things this past week, but instead I needed to relax, spend time with friends, and reset my brain.

Radvent 2012 4: Decorate

Radvent 5 is about decorating, and for the first few days of December I wasn’t feeling it. I looked at all my clutter and knew that would have to be cleared before I could even attempt to get festive. But I did notice the cute little “table-top” trees at Whole Foods, and after years of […]
