Good Monday morning! Today I am enjoying a cup of Starbucks Holiday Blend with some Silk Oatmilk. It is so good, and adds a hint of oatmeal cookie flavor to my coffee! My mug is one I picked up from TJ Maxx a few years ago and is available on eBay and Amazon too. Sometimes I like to drink from a sturdy mug and other times from a beautiful bone china one. Today was a china day. It is snowing lightly and the house is quiet except for the hum of the dishwasher. I am cozy on the couch with a pup on each side, thinking about how to slow down and enjoy the fact that Christmas is next week.
I am not stressed about that because my dear mother taught me that everything gets done, and if not...So what? It is more that fact that I enjoy the special things leading up to Christmas that are absent for the rest of the year. I love the tree lights in the early morning and early evenings. I love Christmas songs playing in the background of our days. The feeling of anticipation, joy, wonder, and home that bring us together no matter what is happening outside. That is what I love so much about this time of year. That and Christmas cookies cooling in neat little rows on the kitchen counter. What about you, my friends? What are you enjoying these days?
Have a cozy day!
