Slowing Down…Speeding Up

At a time when much of the world is quickening their pace and rushing forward into a busy, albeit very exciting time, around here we have been doing all we can to slow our pace, be still, and simply be.  You see, there’s a sweet little babe on her way, who is already contributing grandly to our family by insisting on a bit of a slower pace.  This is not to say that we our days are not wonderfully full of holiday goodness…but there is a bit of  a clearer focus on what must be done, and what is extra and can be eliminated from “to-do” lists.  I’m looking forward to a simple a beautiful holiday season filled with the outdoors, yummy goodness, plenty of crafting, and the beauty of simple handmades.  Oh yes, sweet holiday season, we are ready!
