I wanted to slow down because my 2019 life felt so hectic and busy, but not in a good way. Working from home, in addition to other restrictions that the pandemic caused, grounded me and revealed what the heart of my life really entailed. It gave me a fresh perspective and appreciation for the things that really matter. Of course getting pregnant and having my first child changed my perspective even more. Having a baby slows you down in a very unique way! Now as 2021 begins, I am starting the year with this fresh perspective and making a new intention.
Happy holidays my friends! I hope this season is treating you well. Things look different this year for obvious reasons, but picking out holiday gifts is lifting my spirits. I don't have much extra time to find (though for very good reason) and share gifts with you all this year, BUT I do want to share some gift inspiration that's based on my favorite things of 2020. These are my holy grail, favorite things that helped me get through what's perhaps been the craziest year ever. I highly recommend everything mentioned below and think would make really great holiday gifts.
It is happening. I’ve put up so many Christmas decorations in our house this week. I never thought I’d be one of those people who did such a thing before Thanksgiving. But, with this year being what it’s been, I felt like our home could use some extra days of holiday cheer. It’s the little things like this that have kept me going during this pandemic. So it's no surprise I’ve really enjoyed picking out some affordable holiday decor.
