It’s beginning to look a lot like….wait, no, I’m not quite ready for Christmas yet. It seems that every year signs of Christmas are popping up earlier and earlier in stores and on social media. I feel the pressure to pull out my Christmas decor and play around with what Winter will look like in our new home. But I won’t cave in…. I want to still revel in the beauty of Autumn and the grateful feelings that this time of year (harvest, Thanksgiving) brings.
For just a little longer, I want to hold onto acorns and pumpkins and gold and mauve leaves and enjoy watching the squirrels stock up for the months ahead. Before we know it, the seasons will change, life outside will lose its color and fall into a slumber, and the jingle of bells will be on the horizon. But until then, it’s going to look a lot like thanksgiving in this casa of ours.
