I've always loved the start of a new month. So today is feeling pretty special. And who doesn't love the start of the month of December?
We've quickly transitioned from all of the feasting and gratitude of Thanksgiving to the anticipation of Christmas and all of the warmth and hope that it brings.
Gingerbread dough has been made once already, blankets abound in the living room at night, fires have been lit in the fireplace, new flannel sheets cover cozy beds and our favorite wool slippers have found there way onto the little feet of the three smallest people in our home.
I have been particularly inspired lately by this blog and all of it's wonderful and thoughtful information on warmth and the importance of rhythm, particularly, the bedtime routine, in the life of a family with young children.
Wishing you a blessed, warm start to the beginning of the most wonderful season of all!
