Yesterday was restless and rough. Paint smeared across furniture, Huck stealing homemade pizza from the counter top, and yarn unraveled. T’was not a stellar day in my parenting career thus far, that is for certain. It ended with me laying rumpled on our bed in a dark room wishing I was more patient; better; different.
Today has been better. Christmas crafting, roughhousing and hugging, soup warming on the wood stove, and sitting cuddled under a creamy blanket watching The Sword in The Stone. The tree line out front is hazed by heavy layers of falling snow.
I am looking forward to the slow days of our Christmas vacation; a visit to the farm (and if we’re lucky, a horse drawn sleigh ride), puzzles, books, afternoon coffee, all day snacking, perpetual Christmas movies and music, visitors, walks in the woods, campfires, sleeping in front of the fire, and gingerbread houses.
Yes, I intend to savour every little morsel of Christmas goodness because I know January, February, and March will be good, but oh so long.
In other news, I am very excited about what 2013 holds for my wee photography business. I am feeling inspired and hopeful. If you haven’t already, be sure to “like” my new Facebook page to learn about mini sessions and other updates. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like to book a photo session for the new year. I can’t wait to hear from you!
Have a merry day, folks!
go gently + be wonderful
