Weekend Wisdom: Less clutter, more twinkle lights.
Tis the season.
When I offered 31 Days Of Gifts You So Deserve 11 years ago, I knew it would be fun but I had no idea it would turn into a holiday tradition for so many wonderful people. My daughter Bailey and I work on this program together and love thinking about you opening up a playlist or fun recipe we put together. While we celebrate Christmas, I love that this advent calendar is for anyone moving through December who wants to slow down, notice more joy and make time for themselves. Part two of what I love about this program is that it’s easy to send as a gift to friends, co-workers, family, book club friends and other groups. For only $3.10 (although worth so much more) it fits in the holiday budget and lets your loved ones know you are thinking about all month long. I hope you’ll check it out and find more joy, ease and love this December.
