Happy Fall! My Hopes for the Season

Enjoying breakfast on the porch this morning.

It's the day after Halloween! Time to get started planning and making holiday goodness. This is the first holiday season as a family for my Fisherman and I, plus the wee one on the way. Being on bedrest, moderate or not, it's a humbling chance to slow down. Soak up the season. Enjoy tiny moments. My hopes for celebrating the season:

  • not spend any money on decorations, including a Christmas tree. use what we have, make the rest, use nature to bring the season inside. 
  • purge even more of my own holiday decoration collection 
  • make a short list of simple gifts to make and share and stick to it. 
  • spend time on handmade cards. mail early.
  • above all else: keep it simple and roll with it.
Bam. That's really just about it. How do you hope to celebrate this season?


  1. I love your holiday goals! I just want to start some family traditions of our own, and make some special memories with Jesse. I'm inspired by your goal of not spending money on decorations and of just keeping things simple. :)

  2. Hooray for new traditions! I hope you'll share what you choose to create. I'd love to hear more. :)
