Clean Up

img_9497

As a holiday loving person I am continually amazed at the absolute desperation I feel to get every trace of the season boxed up and put away as quickly as possible following Christmas Day. Why is that? It’s like a light switch at midnight on Christmas Day and what mere hours before felt magical and cozy feels suffocating and stale. This year I had to live with it a bit longer because we postponed some of our plans as a means to properly quarantine/test and safely gather with grandparents. But as I sit here in my bare kitchen sipping tea and reflecting on the season I am filled with joy by the magic we made even given the totally bizarre circumstances of this last year. Before we completely move forward I wanted to share a few sweet moments from our holiday cocoon.
