Christmas can be such a busy time of year. With all the festivities and all the extra things to do, it’s easy for it to pass by in a festive blur. I find it’s really important to stop, take a breath and remind myself to be really mindful about what we commit to as a family, and make sure I am able to enjoy all the special times that December has to offer.
Here are some of the things we do in order to have a slow and natural Christmas…
Tomorrow is the first of December, the beginning of Winter, and the first day that Bailey will open her homemade and natural Advent Calendar. The seasons have shifted once more, and our mornings have been magically frosty this last week – they have had us reaching deep into our pockets in search of mittens, and wrapping up in our soft scarves.
I’ve managed to make time to finish Bailey’s natural Advent Calendar just in time for her to open the first little brown parcel tomorrow morning.
