It’s happening again … people are pushing Christmas to the forefront. And while it’s true, Christmas holds a super important role in our year, I think you’re pretty special too.
Like family playing touch football in the front yard and everybody jumping on the trampoline, including the grown-ups.
Like hearing the cousins playing around on the piano. The singing. The laughing.
Like roasted turkey and green bean casserole. Soft, buttery rolls and a glass of wine.
And oh gracious … the homemade pies: Pumpkin, pecan, buttermilk. Probably the only day of the year people eat pie without guilt. Isn’t that a silly shame?
I love family sitting around talking at the big table. And kids wandering in and out. And losing track of time because there’s nothing going on. Just a big family meal and a lot of catching up.
This year, I’m going to try and take one beautiful holiday at a time. I’m going to resist getting all hyped up and stressed out about Christmas ~ when Thanksgiving is sweetly waiting in it’s place.
