-this is the time before everyone wakes when the house whispers of the day to come. a warm latte in hand. writing in a cozy chair.
-this is the time of year when I ponder how much to do for the holiday when i just want it to be simple.
-this is the day when the last of the laundry has been folded and put away after a family visit over thanksgiving. the family exhausted but happy.
-this is the twinkly light time all over town that i love so much.
-this is the morning i awoke to my littlest girlies raspy little voice saying, mama i'm going to kiss you now right before she fell asleep again.
-this is the moment i write the "get things done" list before i whoosh into the morning.
-this is a time to dream and create and feel into the season.
-this is the time to talk with good friends on the phone about ideas for a handmade holiday.
-this is the time to pause and remember that the children prefer hot chocolate hour instead of a done up house.
-this is the time to smell the alchemy that my guy creates from the kitchen. a smell that will waft through the house all day.
-this is the time when i pull out items from the studio and create holiday goodness.
-this is the time to recognize that we are still settling into our new home and town and it's okay to make life easier when possible.
-this is the time to ignore the messes and make muffins instead.
-this is the time to play. sing. laugh. enjoy. plan. create. love.
yes, this is the time...
what is this time for you?
