It is a tradition at our house to “take down Christmas” the day after New Year’s day. Today was all about that. It’s always a lot of work, but these days it seems to take me longer than I can remember to do this so… a restful moment with a cup of tea at the midway point was in order.
I’m really glad I did. Seemed like this was the perfect time to reflect, not only on the holidays, but this past year.
Taking a little time to focus on all the details that became the days of my life these last 365 days.
So many blessings I’ve lost count. There has been hardship too, but we are here, right now, in this moment.
Feeling much gratitude for my family and friends and all the love given and received.
Wishing everyone the best of everything in this new year.
PS – isn’t the little whisk broom adorable? I found it at a lovely little shop in Vancouver, BC over the New Year holiday called Granville Island Broom Co. They make all of their brooms by hand in the traditional way. Worth checking out. They also have an online presence.
