iheartblog: Hello December!

It's only the 3rd today and already we as a family are making awesome memories. Not in big ways but in small ways: Sitting around the tree and having tea and silly conversations. Eating comfort food together on a cold and snowy night. Playing Blokus. Having late mornings. Awesome. This year, i am so inspired by Leo Babauta's philosophy... that i decided to simplify Christmas in this house: the only gifts we are giving will be those in our Christmas Stockings which consists of 4 things: something to read, something to eat, something to play with and something you need. While you can probably make these super expensive gifts, we are choosing not to. Keeping it simple means there are time for creating meals together, spending time and celebrating family and togetherness in a new and incredibly grateful way. Realizing that my kids are growing up so fast and that Tia will be out of the home in 3 years make this an urgent need for me. I want to slow down time. I want to remember each and every little thing. that is my gift to me this year.

This is a page that i created for 2peas. You can see it here.



Till tomorrow!
love and a kiss

Gorgeous page as always!! Where do you live that you have snow? We've had a horrible "heat wave" in NYC, it's been in the 60's! I really am starting to think we won't get snow for Christmas...
