today is one of those cold days. thankfully it isn't so cold we have to shovel our way to the mailbox. it's just a jacket and scarf cold. but it's a perfect day to start my  after christmas organizing and begin the year fresh goal planning. it's a start a fire and hot cocoa day. hope you have cozy plans today.

2010-12-17/day63* what i adore

this week i adore that:
  • he wakes up in the morning, wants to sit by the fire and sip cool tea with me.
  • she notices the unfair killing of innocent animals and wants to save all of then so passionately.
  • when he finds a sharp pencil he instantly looks for a pad of paper to draw on.
  • there were beautiful birthdays 
  • there will be gift exchanges and gingerbread house creating.

2010-12-13/day62*c.f. Ive got your back

we love the smell of pine trees. wonder which one is the perfect tree? for us, picking a christmas tree is unusually hard. sometimes we visit several lots. why is it so hard? they are all green, they all smell the same, and they all pretty much look the same! i know, it's weird. but for a tree to join us for the holidays, it almost has to call out to us. for us it has to be the perfect charlie brown xmas tree...

we are starting to give our home a little spirit.
do you believe?
a popular question around here, especially with our 9 year old. of course there is no room for non believers. we make it impossible to be the grinch. i personally love to imagine what kind of treats will come from that tiny little bakery shoppe! happy friday to all.
