It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

The snow is coming down in unrelenting lazy puffs, settling on the trees and barren ground, making even the ugliest of landscapes beautiful and capable of invoking all the nostalgia one might expect of an idyllic white Christmas.

Of course then someone with no respect for my preferred aesthetic decides to forge their own path across the courtyard in their bustle to finish their to do list before the Big Day and in their continued haste, forge another path back feet from their original trail and so it goes until the picturesqueness view is ruined. I scrunch down a little lower in my seat on the couch so that the back cushions block my view of the ground and continue my little reverie staring at the untouchable sky, blanketed branches, and dusted boughs of evergreens. A shift in perspective can make every difference.

Indoors, twinkle lights abound and I have been decking the halls in celebration of the season. Plans have been nailed down, gifts wrapped, and the husband is off work for the week so we have been taking advantage of the calm before the storm to slow down and shift our perspectives from the busyness of the season to remembering the reason for the season.

We want to wish you all a very merry Christmas and hope that you will enjoy precious moments of both merry celebration and meaningful reflection during these upcoming days.
