Ahhhh Noël

It's 3AM and I've been up for 2 hours.

So, what do you do when you can't sleep? I Pinterest. :)

Sometimes it just keeps me going with all those exciting images and ideas, but tonight (ugh this morning!) I figured out how it can calm me. I stumbled upon a pinner that immediately spoke (en français) to my heart. Amid the dozens of boards, there was a merry little one that caught my eye, and I began to devour it.

16 years ago I lived in Strasbourg, France at Christmastime. It was beautiful. The lights, the marché, the TREE, the snow.

Oh. Snow.

There is something so peaceful about a white Christmas. And if I can't have a white Christmas outside, I certainly can make one inside. I can hear you yelling at me: summer's not even over yet!

Well...



THIS year instead of wanting it ALL, I want it all to be about peace and joy. And yes,
do intend to keep calm.
