Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along :: 

My knitting plate is filled these days with Christmas gifts for my family and friends. I am making a fuzzy rainbow cowl for each our girls to use on those snowy days. I make a set of baby slippers for our little guy and I am finishing up a Milo sweater. I am making a ribbed hat for my fella and I am almost finished a hat for myself. Now, I can say bring on the colder temperatures and snowy days! 

I saw the movie trailer of Unbroken on the television the other night and decided to read the book before seeing the film. It is an amazing true story. A really great read so far. 

So much great reading and knitting happening these days! 

Happy Knitting! xo.

The Beginning

:: The Beginning :: 

A new holiday season is upon us and I can't believe that another year has come and gone in what seems like a blink of an eye. We spent our past weekend just enjoying the company of each other and  decorating our home for Christmas. I am looking forward to starting this holiday season off by getting my brain and heart in the right space. I always want to make this time of year special for myself and my family. I tend to get caught up in the hurried nature of Christmas but not this year. This year my motto: less is more. Less hurrying about , less worrying about the perfect gift or experience, less rushing, and less everything. But more of those little things like sitting with my children and enjoying the Christmas lights, more quiet evenings with my husband, more time in Church, more time walking the winter woods, and more time giving to others.
