It's hectic here; the house is not decorated unless you count the boxes strewn here and there - the boxes with the decorations inside of them.
Martha Stewart would be horrified.
But, I'm okay with it all, determined not to spaz out, determined to keep the season's magic in my heart.
So much magic waiting for us to notice it.
Slow down, have some coffee or tea - whatever suits your fancy.
Breathe in...hold...breathe out.
Smell the peppermint and cinnamon.
Savor a homemade cookie.
Celebrate the magic.
