Happy Mid December! It seems hard to believe the month is half over. But as it is, now is a good moment to pause and breathe.
The wind has knocked most of the snow off the branches, but earlier it was lovely. The first snow is always a bit magical.
Some natural holiday decorations to kick of the season!
The final weeks of the year are underway, too often they are clouded by the holiday mania that occurs. Advertising agencies have perfected a way to convince the masses that the perfect Christmas means finding the perfect gifts, and spending more than intended. And so I am sharing this serene image as a sort of early gift for my readers to relax into at this busy time. Enjoy!
As November turns to December I thought this moment of quiet was just the thing to share.
I made sure to get outside on Thursday and enjoy the day. The weather was perfect for a late afternoon hike, another reason for giving thanks.
