Coming into the holiday season, everyone is so busy. We rush to and fro, picking up this and that and rarely take a moment for ourselves.

But let's make this holiday season a little different. I hope everyone will realize, it is the little moments that those we love will treasure. It's not the presents; it's YOUR presence.

But I'm hoping to be present, aware and relishing the moment not only for those I love, but for those little quiet stolen moments for me.

I promise, I'm going to curl up by my fire and make toasted marshmallows for my pup and I'm NOT going to worry about all I have to do.

I'm going to linger in my creek and feel the joy that wells in my soul when I am there. I'm going to stop  for just a minute and celebrate the end of another day.

I vow to spend this holiday season finding joy along my path, celebrating my loves as well as my passions-

 I will seek out laughter and joy. I will celebrate life. I will celebrate me.

I love this post, Holly. I will take your advice, too. This year I will get firewood so we actually use our fireplace. I'm looking forward to some lazy nights of doing nothing but being.

This is really beautiful. I had the same ideas when writing my celebration post, but you did describe so much better :). Thanks for those thoughts.

Great post Holly.
You're so right ... with all the things that go on in our hectic life we tend to forget to take time and really celebrate all people & things that are so important to us.

I will seek out calm amidst the chaos. I will seek to find meaning in my everyday life. I will seek to connect with my kids at their level, where they are at right now. Thank you for the lovely post. Enjoy the day!

Sounds like a plan! We're staying here this Christmas so will have lots of time to sit by the fire or curl up in a sun beam with a book!

Hope everyone has a restful and calm holiday season!

I've enjoyed being part of this blog group!
