Joy Pockets

This has been a really peaceful week for us.  We've done well to pay deep attention to our rhythm.  We've had our fair share of rain and cold weather which makes me really respect Nature and her Seasons.  This is a time of year to slow down a little, not speed up.  That's just what I intend to do along with enjoying Holiday celebrations and traditions.

Making space for us and not over-doing it everyday.
I rarely do that.  I don't believe in over-scheduling. 
Creating an activity advent calendar for a little holiday celebration each day.
Roasted root vegetables.
The Elf on the Shelf.

Toy shopping at my favorite Austin toy store -Terra Toys.
I've played there since I was a wee kid.
Painting ornaments together.
With lots and lots of glitter!
Hanging out with some Mama friends.
That always warms my heart.

Having special, thoughtful and meaningful gifts for Christmas.
Not just buying something because it's the season to do so.
Making time to sleep this week.
