Yes, we've been Christmassing this week, and all that implies.  Food, family and faith have taken a front seat to our days.   The perfect snow visited us and snow boots and mittens have taken up permanent residence by the back door.  I never intended to take a full week away from this space, but found myself reaching for books instead of my laptop, taking long winter's naps instead of blogging.  In short, I craved rest and quiet, and I found it.  Perhaps that is they key to why this Christmas has been the most peaceful one I can remember since I became a Mama.  I've also had time to reflect on the approaching year for my family, my hopes and dreams and aspirations for what comes next for the soon-to-be 8 of us.

With family still coming into town and several parties still left to attend, we are still in the thick of our holidays, but I will be back on Monday for Mindful Mothering Mondays and my hopes for the new year.

Love and blessings to you and yours!
