Holiday Joys

At the end of November, I’d posted an entry about Purposeful Celebration, committing to a simple list of goals to keep me from getting caught up in frenetic holiday activity this year. This weekend was rather rainy and gloomy in NJ, but I made mine full of holiday joys too. It’s always the simple things that delight me most!

Here’s what I’ve been up to this weekend to celebrate – how about you?

  1. LOVE IT! It’s wonderful to deliberately slow down and enjoy every moment of this season that should be joyous, but can be overwhelming and rushed. 🙂
